1-inch series resolvers offers fully housed configuration

Honeywell’s Hawk 1-inch series resolvers offer a full housed configuration, shock specification of 50 g, 11 ms, vibration specification of 15 g, 10 Hz to 2000 Hz, wide operating temperature range of -50.8 °C to 93.3 °C.

HoneywellHoneywell HAWK Resolvers introduced the Hawk Resolvers 1-Inch Series, Fully Housed Configuration, which provide enhanced accuracy (±7 arcmin) for precise motion control. With the launch of the Hawk Resolvers, Honeywell now offers two off-the-shelf versions, as well as resolvers that can be customized to meet specific end-user needs.

Potential defense applications for the 1-Inch Series include positioning for electro-optical systems, gimbals/communication pedestals, infrared systems, vehicle transmission systems, and test equipment. Potential space applications include positioning for satellite, satellite antenna, space station, and space vehicle solar panel arrays.

The Hawk 1-Inch Series Resolvers offer shock specification of 50 g, 11 ms, vibration specification of 15 g, 10 Hz to 2000 Hz and wide operating temperature range of -50.8 °C to 93.3 °C [-60 °F to 200 °F] which allow for use in harsh military and aerospace applications. The resolvers also feature a wide excitation voltage range of 2 V to 15 V; which allows customers to standardize on a resolver that meets their excitation voltage needs, simplifying sourcing and delivery, and saving time as well as global support.

In addition to its non-contact design, the lack of electronics, and the use of space-qualified materials, Hawk Resolvers meet multiple military/aerospace specifications: DO-160D, MIL-STD-202G, MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-81963B, MIL-STD-461F, and comply with space outgassing requirement SP-R0022.

The fully housed configuration with bearing/shaft has a small outer diameter of 1 inch, which allows for use in size-restricted applications. The single speed operation (1 magnetic pole pair) allows for cost-effective angle resolution over a 360°+ range, and the wide excitation frequency range of 2000 Hz to 5000 Hz provides a wide variety of choices with which to power the device. The transformation ratio of 0.45 or 1.0 offers customers two choices, increasing flexibility within the application.

The Honeywell Hawk™ 1-Inch Series Resolvers are also available with a variety of options, including:

  • Custom trim designed to allow tighter accuracy;
  • Connections which include custom lead wire, cable, connector on unit or connector on cable;
  • Titanium housing which provides enhanced durability and resistance to corrosion; lightweight;
  • Custom redundant version (two independent resolvers within the same housing) which provides reliable back-up/fail-safe in critical applications;
  • Transformer for 360°+ rotation (continuous).

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
