Environmental Resistant Linear Encoder

Environmental Resistant Linear Encoder

Using GMR element

Santest's Model SMR series are linear encoders using GMR (Giant Magneto Resistor) element. The sensor outputs A/B incremental signal according to relative movement between sensor and ferromagnetic scale of having 2mm pitch serration. GMR element gives a stable output at velocity up to 15m/sec by high speed digital signal processing. As SMR works without mechanical contact, it can be used under harsh...

How to Mitigate the Effects of Pulsating Flow

How to Mitigate the Effects of Pulsating Flow

A new technical article from Titan Enterprises discusses how variation in flow velocity can impact flow measurement accuracy and how to mitigate any undesirable effects. It is well known that flowmeters are sensitive to effects such as pulsating flow in systems using diaphragm, peristaltic or piston pumps which can generate errors in flow measurement.

In a pulsating flow system, the velocity profile of the flow undergoes a dramatic change during each cycle of pulsation compared to even flow conditions. According to theory, to accurately...
