MIT EMERGENCY VENTILATOR (E-VENT) PROJECT COPY

MIT has launched an emergency research project with a team of Engineers and American clinicians to address the question:

Is it possible to safely ventilate a COVID-19 patient by automatically actuating a manual resuscitator?

Their process in approaching this question is to first identify the minimum requirements for a low-cost ventilator, based on the collective wisdom of many clinicians, design against these requirements, conduct immediate testing, report the results, iterate and facilitate discussion.

Motion Control – Harsh Environment 20 Bit Resolution Absolute Encoders Available from Electromate!

Electromate offers Netzer Harsh Environment Absolute Encoders

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

 

 

Non-Contact, Absolute-Position Linear and Rotary Position Sensors

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components – Netzer Precision Motion Sensors has taken a revolutionary position sensing technology, originally developed for harsh environment specialized applications, and made it available for today’s broader range of defense, homeland security, aerospace and instrumentation motion control requirements. Standard and customized rotary and linear electric encoders are also applicable for space and avionics, medical, automotive and a wide range of other applications

Netzer’s Rotary Electric Encoders™ provide exceptionally accurate, high resolution, absolute position with miniature to wide diameter hollow shaft. Available with Analog Sin/Cos , Digital SSi , Digital AqB+I outputs, these rotary encoders feature up to 20 Bit Resolution (with 12 bit A/D) and accuracy to <0.01°

For material forming applications this means more accurate path motion, which is critical for accurate cutting and bending. For packaging, food, and converting applications, it means more accurate web tracking, sealing, gluing, cutting, and slitting. All of this is critical for today’s more complex consumer packaging. With coordinated motion blocks and enhanced capabilities, such as three-axis coordinated linear motion as standard, KAS is an ideal solution for more applications than ever before. A template project complete with preconfigured motion blocks, automation code and GUI code helps users get started with coordinated motion. This eliminates the need to control the timing and position of individual axes. It also enables the programmer to command motion in free space and just specify the end position and path.

The Electric Encoder™ non-contact technology relies on interaction between the measured displacement and a space/time modulated electric field. It offers a blend of features unequalled by optical or magnetic encoders.

Advantages of Electric Encoders™ include:

  • Simple, robust structure with a virtually no- failure- mechanism
  • Generous mounting tolerances
  • Very low weight, inertia, and profile (=<10mm)
  • Ring shaped, hollow shaft with a wide range of diameters
  • Absolute position output over 360° rotation range
  • Precision to 0.001° in selected models
  • Default operation range from -55°C to +125°C
  • Dual and triple redundancy options
  • No magnetic signature
  • High tolerance to condensation and contaminants
  • Insensitivity to EMI/RFI and magnetic fields
  • High customizability
  • Low power consumption
  • Ultra-high-speed options
  • Wide variety of position feedback protocols
  • Models range from 25mm OD to 248mm OD [6mm to 170mm ID]
