It has been tested for shock and vibration to MIL-STD-810F. The TSynccPCI timing board can synchronize its clock to various signals including GPS L1 (civilian), encrypted GPS (SAASM), GLONASS L1, IRIG time code, or a precision pulse-per-second signal. A choice of a high precision on-board clock with 5 nanosecond resolution provides time and frequency accuracy even in the case of loss of the external reference. The TSync-cPCI board provides precise time to a host computer. It can generate an interrupt at a periodic rate, at a specified time, and/or when a time-tag event occurs. Drivers are available for current versions of popular operating systems. Spectracom www.spectracomcorp.com Sealed circular push-pull connectors feature bend relief tail Fischer Connectors has released the UltiMate bend relief to prevent cable torsion and increase protection of connection for its circular push-pull connectors. Designed to withstand a variety of severe environmental, industrial and chemical conditions, this circular push-pull connector features excellent EMC 360° shielding, extremely robust keying and an IP68/69 sealing even unmated. The Fischer UltiMate bend relief guarantees top performance without any hassle and requires no tool. Users only need to carry out five simple steps to complete self-assembly. Users can also adjust the bend relief to the cable diameter with a simple blade. The Fischer UltiMate bend relief is long lasting and resists up to 10,000 constraints at a 90° angle, at temperatures ranging from -55 to +135°C. It is UV resistant. Fischer Connectors www.fischerconnectors.com Low-cost 0.6 μm resolution linear self-locking drive is engineered from thermoplastics The U-264KSPA linear actuator from Physik Instrumente is a self-locking drive that has been optimized for being produced in large quantities from engineering thermoplastics. It features a 200 mm travel range and a minimum incremental motion of 6 μm. A linear encoder with 0.6 μm resolution assures reliable position control and repeatable accuracy. With the drive technology of PILine ultrasonic piezo motors, velocities of up to 150 mm/s and a maximum holding force of 6 N can be achieved. As piezomotors are self-locking at rest, no heat is generated and mechanical components such as brakes or gearhead can be dispensed with. As a result, the U-264KSPA ensures high positional stability. The stiff design, direct coupling and fast response times of the piezo ceramics allow for a highly dynamic start/stop behaviour. PILine linear drives dispense with the mechanical complexity of classical rotary motor/gear/leadscrew combinations in favour of costs and reliability. An integral part of the ultrasonic piezomotor is the piezo ceramics that is pretensioned against a movably guided runner via a coupling element. The piezo element is excited to high-frequency oscillations that cause the runner to move. Preloading the piezoceramic actuators against the runner ensures self-locking of the drive when at rest and powered down. As a result, it does not consume any power, does not heat up, and keeps the position mechanically stable.
