Encoders step up to help miniaturise electronics

Encoders step up to help miniaturise electronics
Playing a big role in improving the throughput, quality and packing density of wire bonding machines as used by manufacturers of micro-electronic devices, is the tiny vacuum encoder, the MicroE Mercury II encoder by Celera Motion. Available in the UK from INMOCO, the encoder is one-third the size of other encoders, yet is easy to install and set up.

Inductive circumferential scanning in hollow-shaft encoders

Inductive circumferential scanning in hollow-shaft encoders
Introduced by HEIDENHAIN, new hollow-shaft encoders, extend the manufacturer’s range of products that use inductive position measurement and at the same time expand the application range of torque motors. Designated ECI 4000 and EBI 4000, the robust encoders have a hollow shaft dimension of 90mm, no integral bearing and offer high accuracy and repeatability.

Inclination sensors provide high precision in any position

Inclination sensors provide high precision in any position
In order to be able to accurately determine the inclination of machinery or machinery components, tecsis now has a wide range of inclination sensors. The sensors operate using a dielectric liquid, the surface of which always aligns itself horizontally by means of gravity, similarly to a spirit level. The liquid is located between two circular electrodes, one of which is divided into two semicircles. The space between them is half-filled with the liquid. When the sensor rotates, the capacities between the two semicircular electrodes at one side and the counter-electrode at the other side change.

Proximity measuring system offers speed allied with precision

Proximity measuring system offers speed allied with precision
Manufacturing and design industries require increasing precision of measurement, and selecting the right non-contact proximity measuring system can be essential to a successful project that stays on time and on budget, writes Kevin Conlin of Kaman Precision Products. Using a measuring system that is non-contact and employs eddy current sensors allows for high-accuracy proximity measurement even in rugged surroundings.

No backlash and high speed linear motors have integrated encoders

No backlash and high speed linear motors have integrated encoders
Two linear motors have been added to Moticont’s SDLM Series of high speed direct drive linear motors, also known as Electric Cylinders. These compact drives with a 25.4mm (1.0”) stroke are just 25.4mm (1.0”) in diameter and 95.3mm (3.75”) long. These direct drive linear motors feature resolutions of 5µm (0.000197”) and 1.25µm (0.000049”).
