Magnetic Absolute Rotary Encoders are precise, rugged, compact.

November 25, 2014

Intended for use in ambient conditions that prove challenging for mechanical systems, ENA58IL and ENA36IL are based on noncontact, magnetic detection principle; use 2-axis Hall sensor; and have no mechanical gearing. Inclusion of Wiegand sensor turns these single-turn absolute rotary encoders into multiturn absolute rotary encoders. Along with accuracies up to 0.1°, encoders offer resolution up to 16 bit (single turn) and 32 bit (multiturn) and signal processing time of <100 µsec. Read More

Communication Modules suit IoT and embedded applications.

November 25, 2014

Both using mPCIe interface, Model EMPL-G201 adds 1 or 2 isolated Gigabit Ethernet ports, while Model EMP2-X401 adds either 4 or 8 serial ports independently selectable by software to communicate in RS232, RS422, or RS485 mode. Both Embedded Peripheral Modules include ESD surge protection that can handle electrostatic shocks up to 15 KV. Modules allow system designers to expand Ethernet or serial connectivity of embedded systems for Internet of Things and industrial applications. Read More

Low-Noise DAQ System/Digitizer uses noise-cancelling technology.

November 25, 2014

Digidata® 1550A is intended for analog-to-digital conversion of biological signals measured in electrophysiology experiments. Included adaptive noise cancellation technology, HumSilencer™, provides single-click elimination of 50 and 60 Hz line-frequency noise that can impair analysis of biological signals. It identifies local line-frequency noise and suppresses extraneous noise amplitude up to 20 V peak to peak at analog input in <1 sec. Read More
