M2000-Nx NEMA 4X (IP66) Hand-held Industrial Motion Controller

STRATFORD, CONNECTICUT, January 5, 2010: CTI Electronics Corporation introduces a new line of man machine interface devices called the M2000-Nx Series hand-held Industrial Motion Controller. These rugged NEMA 4X (IP66) sealed analog controllers are designed for use as an operator interface in industrial environments for precision motion control of numerous analog devices including DC motor control, Stepper Motors, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's), etc.

The M2000-Nx Series is a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) product which is readily manufactured based upon a customer's individual specifications.

The NEMA 4X (IP66) stainless steel enclosure is designed for limited-space applications; it features a gasket sealed bottom plate with rubber feet to prevent movement or slippage on dirty, wet, surfaces. With an 8 pin NEMA 4 (IP66) connection (Shell and Plug) it provides X and Y axis voltage outputs, center voltage reference, and optional one or two pushbutton voltage outputs. A variety of Input/Output Voltage selections (+5V, +10V, +12V, +24V, ±5V, ±10V, ±12V Inputs) are provided to encompass a broad range of applications spanning Industrial, Medical, and Military markets. Its design is the perfect solution where washing off of debris, harsh oils and/or abrasive chemicals is required.

The M2000-Nx Series has all the features of the Industrial Mouse™ family, and with optional one or two pushbuttons on the joystick it allows the operator to conveniently perform controlled functions; while wearing heavy duty gloves. A selection of eight different joystick knobs allows for unlimited possibilities to suit your applications' unique needs. (Joystick options include Conformal Coating of PCB to protect against rapid changes in temperature or high humidity environments. Low Temperature Components to survive and operate in -40ºC to +80ºC temperature range. Also, these joysticks can be manufactured with an electrical "Safety" indicator known as the Optical Neutral Switch which is activated upon spring return to center.)

In addition, CTI Electronics Corporation also offers an anodized aluminum M2000 holder for convenient placement and storage of the M2000-Nx series Motion Controller. The aluminum holder has pre-drilled holes for simple screw mounting along side any machine or cabinet. CTI also offers a full one (1) year warranty protection on the M2000-Nx series.

Trackball with Newly Redesigned Electro-Optical Encoder

STRATFORD, CONNECTICUT, November 25, 2009: Each high-reliability trackball from CTI Electronics utilizes newly redesigned electro-optical encoders, patent pending. Additionally, these new electro-optical encoders feature a redundant photo-detector and light path to monitor the encoder LED light output.

A novel circuit uses this light-intensity feedback signal to ensure that the quadrature output withstands the test of time— without compromising performance. Not only do our trackballs offer very high encoder wheel resolution, they also provide long-term reliability and durability.

In that CTI is building its own optical encoder, as opposed to purchasing a photo-detector sensor, customers can be assured of not only lasting reliability, but also long-term availability. This is especially important in products that require regulatory approvals, have long-term market requirements, or would be costly to redesign should an off-the-shelf photo-detector become obsolete.

Our strategy is to produce all of the key sensors used in our products, allowing CTI to regulate quality, reliability and long-term availability.
