3-Axis Acceleration Sensor

Saelig Company, Inc. (Pittsford, NY) has introduced JoyWarrior24F14, a high-resolution USB-connected 3-axis acceleration sensor with 125μg sensitivity. The new USB-powered JoyWarrior24F14 offers acceleration resolution down to 125μg. JoyWarrior24F14 modules are based on a MEMS sensor and measure with 14-bit resolution in the ranges ±1g, ±1.5g, ±2g, ±3g, ±4g, ±8g, or ±16g, delivering 125 results per second. Because JoyWarrior24F14 enumerates and works as a joystick, accessing the data can be easily done via the operating system's joystick API without installing any specific drivers. The included software operates on Windows and MacOS X platforms and contains a configuration tool to set the sensor parameters, with tilt angle measuring, a calibration tool, and a simple data recorder. Small size (30 x 33 x 5mm) and a low mass (

PCIe/104 Single Board Computer

Kontron (Poway, CA) has introduced the world’s first PCIe/104™ embedded single board computer (SBC) based on the Intel® Atom™ E600C processor series, pairing an Intel Atom E600 series processor with an Altera Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) in a single package. The Kontron PCIe/104 MICROSPACE(R) MSMST is equipped with the Intel Atom E600C processor series ranging up to 1.3 GHz with up to 2 GB onboard DRAM system memory. All components are validated for the extended temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C. The power optimized Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (Intel GMA 600) with up to 128 MByte, 18/24 Bit LVDS and SDVO interface is integrated in the processor. Video signals are carried out by optional media boards for VGA or DVI. Optional SPDIF (out) and two analog stereo connections for line-out and mic-in take care of the high-definition audio signals.

RS3 managed Ethernet switch and RS4 unmanaged Ethernet switch

MEN Micro, Ambler, PA, has introduced the RS3 managed Ethernet switch and RS4 unmanaged Ethernet switch, each built with an aluminum housing and M12 connectors with eight Fast Ethernet ports per switch. The switches are designed for system safety in harsh, mobile, and mission-critical applications. The maintenance-free, fanless switches are fault-tolerant, storing themselves on their own. If a link is temporarily unavailable, frames are sent via backup/redundant links to avoid data loss. A built-in test mechanism also is included. Each switch supports full and half-duplex operation with auto-negotiation and non-blocking store-and-forward switching. Both models feature a service port that allows configuration via a Web interface, CLI, SNMP Version 3 or exterior dongle for the RS3, and via an SPI for the RS4. The aluminum housing measures 220 × 130 × 70 mm. Operating temperature ranges from -40 to 70 °C.

Rotary Sensor

Piher North America (Libertyville, IL) offers the MTS 360 SMD rotary position sensor that combines a through-shaft design with 360° absolute position feedback in an ultra-miniature size. The non-contacting sensor measures 6 × 17 × 18 mm, and features reliability to 50 million cycles. The sensor can be integrated on a PCB, and incorporates Hall Effect technology. The offset through-hole accommodates the vacuum pickup tool, allowing use in automated SMD assembly systems. The standard model features a 4-mm double D-flat shaft, and an 8-pad SMD footprint that is compatible in most reflow soldering systems.

Universal Motor Controller

Oriental Motor (Torrance, CA) has introduced the SCX10 single-axis universal stepping motor controller that allows users to operate any motor via three serial communication protocols, including RS-232C, CANopen, and USB interface. It can be used either in an open loop or closed loop system. Standard software allows for program creation by selecting system commands, and start of operation with the click of a start key. The program provides functions such as real-time monitor for the teaching position, current position, and I/O status; system parameter setting; oscilloscope function; and I/O assignment.

Hydraulic Cylinders

J.H. Williams Tool Group, a unit of Snap-on Industrial (Kenosha, WI), offers single-acting lock nut cylinders in diameter sizes from 2 to 12". Units are designed to support loads for extended periods without hydraulic pressure; an overflow port prevents cylinders from travel. Units are 10,000 psi/700 bar with weight capacity ranges to 100 tons. Lightweight aluminum cylinders in diameters from 2 to 12" and double-acting cylinders from 6 to 20" also are available. The double-acting cylinders include rod wipers to seal dirt and other contaminants.
