Improved Length Gauge Offers Higher Accuracy for
1um accurate ACANTO 1217 and 1218 Length Gauges. The ACANTO
can be implemented in a multitude of gauging applications, from automotive
manufacturing, medical device, in-process measurements, as well as fixtured
gauging stations. Important specs of the ACANTO length gauge include:
• Interface: EnDat 2. 2 (Datum memory, Error
monitoring, Gauge Auto-Recognition)
• Along with built-in error monitoring, the
ACANTO remembers the last datum used,
eliminating the need to re-master due to the
• The ACANTO also auto-connects and reports data to any control that has
• With an IP rating of IP64 or IP 67, the ACANTO can be used on the shop-floor
in automated systems or in clean environments.
H2W Technologies (Santa Clarita, CA) has built its
smallest moving magnet voice coil actuator (NCM01-
04-001-2IB) and moving coil voice coil actuator
(NCC01-04-001-1X) to date.
The NCM01-04-001-2IB moving magnet voice coil
• An outside diameter of 0.40 in [ 10 mm] and a length
of 0.735 in [ 18. 8 mm].
• Generates a continuous force of 0.10 lbs [0.45 N]
and a peak force of 0.30 lbs [1.35 N].
The NCC01-04-001-1X moving coil voice coil
• An outside diameter of 0.44 in [ 11.1 mm] and a
length of 0.36 in [ 9 mm].
• A stroke of 0.13 in [ 3. 2 mm]
• Generates a continuous force of 0.06 lbs [0.27 N]
and a peak force of 0.18 lbs [0.8 N].
• Weight: 0.20 ounces [ 5.7 grams].
Why Would I Specify?
• The actuators’ compact designs
allow them to be used in a
number of handheld applications.

Antennas Boost Performance of Wi-Fi,
GPS and Cellular Networks
Antenna Company (Pleasanton, CA) announced the
availability of new high performance antenna technologies
and systems for a wide variety of applications which
include both indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi, connected home,
mobile computing, telematics and Io T applications. Their
patented SuperShape technology improves gain, efficiency,
isolation, and coverage versus conventional embedded
antenna designs on the market.
Why Would I Specify?
• Independent benchmark tests have shown SuperShape
antennas can increase range and throughput by 50 to
100% in both line of sight and non-line of sight test
• These new antenna designs can be 40% smaller than
competing designs. In fact, the laptop antennas are small
enough to fit into the hinge connecting the base to the
• Optimized reference designs are
available for 802.11ac MIMO
or Multi-User MIMO system
configurations ranging from
2× 2 up to 8× 8, delivering
gigabit wireless performance.
