Electronic Handwheel

The HR 1120 electronic handwheel from Heidenhain Corp. (Schaumburg, IL) is used in machine automation systems where changing formats or positioning objects with numerous axes is necessary. It is suitable for both portable and stationary housings, and is used in association with the machine control. The mechanical detent with 100 positions per revolution allows exact control and movement. The electrical signal output at TTL levels with differential signals as per RS-422 allows connection of standard programmable logic controllers and PC slot cards.

MEMS Inclinometer

The PTAM27L series MEMS-based inclinometer from ASM Sensors (Elmhurst, NY) is designed for single- and dual-axis tilt angle measurements. For single-axis versions, measurement ranges span from ±15° to ±180°, in increments of 15°. For dual-axis versions, the measurement ranges span from ±15° to ±60°, in increments of 15°. The inclinometer is an extension of the POSITILT® MEMS-based inclinometers. The wear-free sensing technology provides shock resistance. The housing is rated IP64 and has a height of 10 mm. The device offers 0.1° resolution and ±1° linearity.

Vertical Lift Stage

Aerotech (Pittsburgh, PA) offers the ANT 130-5-V linear motor-driven wedge-style vertical lift stage that provides in-position stability for nanopositioning applications. It offers travel up to 5 mm and is a precision stage designed for standalone use, or it can be integrated with other stages for a multiaxis nanopositioning system. The stage utilizes directdrive technology, as well as anti-creep crossed-roller bearings. The direct-drive technology is non-cogging, non-contact, high-speed, and high-resolution. Applications include fiber alignment, optical delay element actuation, sensor testing, and scanning processes that require stable, repeatable motion. The stage has universal mounting and tabletop patterns for system integration.
