In certain industrial areas, working under extreme conditions is essential. Robots are increasingly being used to minimize the risk for employees.
The S4T miniature optical shaft encoder is a non-contacting rotary to digital converter. The S4T contains an LED light source, monolithic photo detector and mylar disk. The S4T encoder is available with a shaft bushing or ball bearings for motion control applications, or with shaft torque designed to feel like a potentiometer for front-panel manual interfaces. The encoder converts real-time shaft angle, speed, and direction into TTL-compatible quadrature outputs without index. It operates from a single +5VDC supply.
The E4T miniature transmissive optical encoder is designed to provide digital quadrature encoder feedback for high volume, limited space applications. It offers higher maximum speed and increased output drive than previous models. The E4T utilizes an innovative, push-on encoder disk which accepts shaft diameters of 2.0mm to .250".
The perfect fit for motion control when space is limited
In addition, the Chicago Tribune named FANUC America's Hoffman Estates, IL regional office one of Illinois' top workplaces.
Full 360-degree movement allows operators to easily position taps with guaranteed perpendicularity.
The program will be the first of its kind in Florida and one of only a few in the nation.
This brief coverage of some of the emerging uses of servo motors and drives emphasizes the improvements made possible as these components become increasingly advanced. Such progress should continue over the foreseeable future...
We identified more than 30 vendors that are currently marketing over 80 cobot models, and we expect this number to grow. More than 80 percent of collaborative robot suppliers generated less than $10m in revenues last year.
We are targeting those industries that require precise, small, high-torque motors and complementary components such as high precision planetary gearboxes, slip rings, sensors and encoders.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface
With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
