Motion Control - Introducing the IncOder™ Inductive Angle Encoder by Zettlex which is available from Electromate!

Electromate offers Zelllex Inductive Encoders


Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Motion Control - Zettlex position sensors (IncOders) use non-contact, inductive technology for precision angle measurement. Rather than the bulky transformers of traditional inductive sensors, Zettlex sensors use printed circuits. This enables compact, accurate, lightweight and robust position sensors with no contacts, no delicate parts, no maintenance, no hassle – just accurate measurements – all day, every day. IncOders are ideally suited to harsh environments – where potentiometers, optical or capacitive devices may prove unreliable.

IncOders have 2 main parts – a Stator and a Rotor – each shaped like a flat ring. The large bore makes it easy to accommodate through-shafts, slip-rings, optical-fibres, pipes or cables.

Motion Control Components Application - Implantable medication delivery systems: Where every microliter counts!

Maxon motion control application - Implantable Medication Delivery System

Implantable medication delivery systems can have a decisive influence on the quality of life of the patients. In many cases, such delivery systems are vital for the survival of the patients – the systems have to be absolutely reliable. maxon motor manufactures high-precision micro drives for medication delivery systems.



Fall River, MA -- Motion Control Components Application - Patients that suffer from chronic pain, metabolic disorders, diseases of the central nervous system and tumor diseases require accurately dosed medication. Here implantable medication delivery systems are used. Through the localized medication delivery, the dosage can be reduced to the required minimum. These infusion systems thus improve the quality of life of the patients. For many patients, it is only the medication delivery system that allows them to have a life outside of the clinic. Repetitive invasive, painful operations can be avoided. The risk of medication dependency and undesired side effects are reduced to a minimum. All these factors can contribute to the disease no longer being the central focus of the patient's life.

(100 mm) and the range of travel of the AY110-100-SC Rotary Stage is a full 360o and it is capable of continuous rotation. The table is driven by a 180:1 worm gear at up to 14o per second and has a resolution of 0.0001o with a 10 micro-step per step stepper motor driver. The stage is also available with a servo motor and optical encoder. When configured with the standard stepper motor there is a knob for manual adjustment which can be replaced with an optical encoder for precision position verification

Maxon motion control EtherCAT Plugin for EPOS4 Motion Controller



Fall River, MA - Motion Control Components -EtherCAT Plugin for Motion Controller - Your drive specialist, maxon motor, is equipping its EPOS4 positioning controllers with additional connectivity options. They can now be integrated into any EtherCAT network as a slave by using an expansion board

EPOS4 positioning controllers by maxon motor are now able to communicate via EtherCAT using the CoE standard (CAN application layer over EtherCAT). The EtherCAT card can be combined with the EPOS4 controllers in a housing, as well as with all EPOS4 modules. EPOS4 Compact designs with EtherCAT versions will follow at a later date. This expansion for the world of Ethernet-based communication protocols further expands the areas of application for the compact positioning controllers. For example, in applications where short cycle times are important in synchronized multi-axis systems.

Motion Control - Compact High Force Iron Core Brushless Linear Motor!

H2W Technologies Compact High Force Linear Motor




Santa Clarita, CA —- Motion Control - H2W engineers have developed a compact high force brushless linear motor (BLSM-1F) that can generate 300 lbs [1330 N] at a 10% duty cycle and 100 lbs [444 N] at a 100% duty cycle, and, when used with a matching magnet track (BLST-FSX). The mass of the coil assembly is 19 lbs [9 Kg] which gives a force to moving mass ratio of 15:8

The motor can be driven using either a trapezoidal or digital standard three phase brushless amplifier. The Brushless Linear Motor Coil measures 6.53 in X 7.50 in x 1.50 in [170 mm x 190 mm x 38 mm]. This Brushless Linear Motor is designed for applications that require a wide speed range and a relatively high force.
