Hybrid Linear Actuator

Haydon Switch & Instrument (Waterbury, CT) released size 8 hybrid linear actuators with encoder feedback. Encoder resolutions range from 120 to 330 cycles per revolution, or 480 to 1,200 pulses per revolution; encoder operating temperatures are -10 to 85°C. The optical incremental encoder design is available with two-channel quadrature TTL squarewave outputs. The units are available in resolutions ranging from 0.00006 to 0.00157" per step, and deliver thrusts of up to 10 lbs.

Rotating Torque Sensor

The Model 01424 rotating torque sensor from Sensor Developments (Lake Orion, MI) uses a shaft-to-shaft configuration for in-line placement, and incorporates a digital non-contact wireless system that provides power to the rotating electronics mounted on the shaft, transmitting the signal back to the receiver in digital format. The torque signal is then represented as a calibrated, high level analog voltage.
