Superflat Encoder with Hollow Shaft

IncOder are contactless inductive encoders for applications demanding high precision. The encoders have proven their use in harsh environments but the design fits a number of other applications. For example a hollow shaft with limited space for a position sensor that also requires a contact-less solution. IncOder is easily installed and is available in diameters ranging from 37mm up to 300mm.

 

The IncOder brand grew out of the English university world and the company has been successful with their ring shaped position sensors. Easy to install they have proven their value within extreme environments such as helicopters, submarines and other applications for the military.

With a track record in the defence industry other industries have become aware of the unusual flat ring shape and today IncOder sensors can be found in robots, TV cameras, cranes and forestry machines.

Allan J. Vestergaard and Kim Christiansen New Board Members in Mikkelsen Electronics A/S

A new era begins in Mikkelsen Electronics A/S when the family steps out of the board and gives room for two new board members. Instead of Anne Levinsen and Ulla Haberl Allan J. Vestergaard and Kim Christiansen enter the board.

 

As CEO Allan J. Vestergaard stood behind the restructuring of NetTest A/S, a subsidiary of GN Store Nord until it was sold to Japanese Anritsu. He also has a history as CEO in sonar producing Reson A/S and a Ph.D. in organizational theory. From 2000 Allan J. Vestergaard has worked in a large number of boards in and outside Denmark.

 

Kim Christiansen has had various management positions in companies with emphasis on advanced technology such as CST and Reson A/S and within areas such as business development, sales, marketing and R&D. Kim Christiansen currently holds a position as Vice President in Ellipse A/S and has a Master of Science degree in Engineering.

 

“Our aim has been to provide the board with knowledge in fields that we as owners do not cover. Additionally, we are ambitious with Mikkelsen Electronics so we feel very lucky to be able to attract heavy profiles to our board. I’m sure it will be a huge advantage for our company”, Ulla Haberl says.

 

Mikkelsen Electronics A/S was founded by deceased Marius Mikkelsen. Since 2000 the ownership consists of his wife, Inga Mikkelsen, and his two daughters, Anne M. Levinsen and Ulla Haberl. The daughters each own 40% of the company which is led by Juergen A. Haberl. Apart from Allan J. Vestergaard, Kim Christiansen the new board also consists of Jens Erik Thorndahl. The latter holds a position as CEO in Athena IT-Group A/S.

Inexpensive yet powerfull:
Super-flat non-contacting rotary sensor

When it comes to position and angular measurements, today’s manufacturers often choose magnetic technologies.

Hall Effect-based sensors, for instance, yield absolute measurements which are reliable even under tough environmental conditions.

Their relatively low cost in comparison with other measurement technologies make them suitable for countless applications in machine engineering and plant design as well as for mobile applications.

In light of recent developments, this trend is expected to continue.

The TH1 Series from Novotechnik

A new design that is making its debut at the Elmia Subcontractor Trade Show 2013 is the magnetostrictive linear position sensor of the TH1 series. This sensor represents the systematic advancement of the TMI series and further data optimization. The non-contacting sensor, which utilizes the NOVOSTRIKTIV process, is offered with measuring ranges of up to 4250 mm. It meets the protection requirements of IP67 / IP68. The permissible operating temperatures are -40° C to +185° C.


The linear position sensor is not influenced by external conditions and suitable for direct installation into pressure cylinders. Not only does the sensor comprise the monitoring and linearization of measurement values, but it also guarantees maximum data transfer safety and dynamics. The resolution is independent of the measuring range and remains consistently at 0.001 mm, which can be a deciding factor, especially where large measuring ranges are concerned.

 

Special emphasis was placed on the safety of the internal processing of sensor values as well as on the data output at a repetition rate of 16kHz.
The temperature coefficient of the linear position sensor is very small, which is attributable to measuring process, design, and choice of materials. The high mechanical robustness, combined with the measurement process, provides a high degree of immunity against impacts and vibrations. The rod design is easily integrated and permits the position sensing system’s use in the pressure zone of hydraulic cylinders. The touchless ring position marker provides for ease-of-installation.
The linear position sensor’s high-quality ASIC electronics provide standardized absolute output signals. In addition to analogue current and voltage
interfaces, there are also start-stop interfaces for up to 3 position markers, synchronous-serial interfaces (SSI), 24-, 25-, or 26 bit and the highly-dynamic, serial DyMoS interface with data transfer monitoring.

 

The advantages of conventional interfaces and bus interfaces were combined in this DyMoS interface. In addition to the positional value, it also transThemits current velocity data. The fieldbus interface is CANopen; Ethernet interfaces are being developed.
The TH1 takes measurements at high velocity and even under extreme conditions, and it does not suffer any wear and tear. It is therefore well-suited for the most diverse industrial applications, such as the precision handling of heavy components.

Macromelt®changes to Technomelt®

Henkel has decided to simplify their overall brand portfolio. This means that Macromelt® will be clustered under the brand Technomelt®.

 

Technomelt® is Henkel’s overall brand for hotmelt adhesives which are designed to obtain the best results in the application and production processes.

 

The change in name only involves the name from Macromelt® to Technomelt® and does not have any effect on the product composition or chemical formulation.

 

For a period of time data sheets etc. will occur with both names.

Encoder setting - on site!

Swiss-based Contelec launches encoders with on-site setting facilities.

Precision installation and adjustment of encoders, exact setting of the zero or middle point or the start and end points – these are some of the challenges facing system integrators, production plants and service personnel. Components are frequently installed in such confined spaces that mechanical adjustment of the rotary encoder is impossible or extremely difficult.

 

There is also frequently the need to reset angle sensors in the field in order to adjust for wear-related changes of the measured system. This should be easy and convenient to do and not require any complex aids.

 

For these purposes Contelec has introduced encoders which can be set on-site.
