Touchless Rotary Sensors with CANopen Interface

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik U.S. offers the Vert-X 32E Series of programmable rotary angle sensors. The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to a rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear. Output provided is CANopen Interface. Vert-X 32E Series is CiA certified serial communications output and supports real-time control.


Parker FEP Tubing Resists More Chemicals Than Thermoplastic Tubing

Tort Worth, TX - Parker Hannifin, the mobile leader in control technology, offers FEP tubing for high temperature applications where chemicals are used. It is extremely resistant to the most highly corrosive chemicals such as aqua regina, hydrofluoric acid and hydrogen peroxide, just to name a few. Only molten alkali metals, such as sodium or potassium, chlorine trifluoride and gaseous fluorine at elevated temperatures and pressures will attack FEP chemically.


Shock Wave generation with Piezoelectric Shakers

The PIA series piezoelectrical shock wave generators from piezosystem jena produce exact precise shock waves by the use of piezo technology. Pulsers and
electronics produce exact precise shocks with accurate repeatability. Accelerations can be achieved as high as 500‘000 m/s2. The specialized high dielectric piezo ceramics produce considerably higher energy rates than common piezo actuators. The energy level is increased by the use of seismic masses. Pulse energy reaches Joule values. Primary pulse and reflected pulses interfere together in a characteristic form of a double pulse profile.


Retainers prevent axial withdrawal on bolts and shafts

Providing reliable retention in the event of axial forces on shafts requires components with special properties.
