Compact encoders for OEM designs

The Pittman E30C and E30D optical incremental encoders are small in diameter and low-profile, yet offer high resolutions and multichannel output in an economic design. The E30C and E30D are 5V, 2- and 3-channel optical encoders available in 64 configurations.

The modular encoder package is 30mm x 8mm with alternate mounting arrangements. Connections are provided through a locking radial or optional axial connector. The E30C and E30D encoders operate from -20°C to 85°C and weigh 5.6g.

E30C encoders have resolutions of 200, 250, 256, 400, or 500, and outputs 2-channel quadrature signals that are TTL compatible. Operating frequency is 40kHz (200cpr to 500cpr).

The E30D has resolutions of 500, 512, 1,000, 1,024, 2,000, or 2,048. It outputs 2-channel quadrature signals that are TTL compatible, with an optional third channel index output. Operating frequency is 55kHz (500cpr to 512cpr), 110kHz (1,000cpr to 1,024cpr), or 220kHz (2,000cpr to 2,048cpr).

Miniature solenoid pump

The LPM series inert solenoid pump features a port head design that allows tubing connections and manifold mounting. The LPM series enables designers to test fluidic systems using soft, 1/16" tubing. Once the system design is finalized, the same pump can be manifold-mounted using standard O-rings. Available in standard 10µL and 25µL models, the pump features low power consumption and a contoured end cap that provides secondary connector retention and is compatible with standard AMP connectors.

IP video server for Ethernet streaming

Model 2453 IP video server allows users to capture and compress analog audio and video and send the resulting streams over Ethernet. With a range of configurations, the Model 2453 is flexible and powerful enough to meet the needs of medical manufacturing applications.

The Model 2453 can simultaneously produce two output streams with independent resolutions, frame rates, and bit rates, allowing it to be tailored to match the requirements and network capabilities of individual applications. Advanced features include de-interlacing with motion artifact removal, real-time text overlay, and image rotation and mirroring.
