In today’s increasingly automated and smarter factories, servo-driven systems have become more prevalent than ever. Until now, the electrical interface limited the kind of encoder you could use in these applications-but all that is changing with SCS open link. This once-proprietary standard is now publicly available, ensuring the compatibility of devices from different manufacturers and […]

As the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) continues to transform manufacturing operations into Smart Factories, machines must exchange information with other machines on multiple levels. When designers select an encoder, not only must they consider how it interacts with the drive but also how it communicates as part of a larger intelligent sensor network. Enterprises […]

To avoid downtime and costly repairs to your motor-driven systems, make sure you pay attention to the construction of your incremental encoders. The best encoders will have design features that allow them to resist shock and vibration loads, as well as overcome any installation errors that introduce misalignment. It’s important to select incremental encoders that […]

As solar energy continues to grow as a modern-day source of power, components must be designed to ensure continuous and efficient operation of the energy generation process. Because heliostats are often placed in remote desert areas, they are exposed to a number of harsh environmental factors, such as high temperatures during the day, dust exposure […]
