PRODUCT OF THE MONTH — Magnetic Hyperthermia System

MSI Automation, Wichita, KS, has introduced a magnetic hyperthermia system for the magnetic heating of nanoparticles. The system is designed for developing the proper thermal response of nanoparticles used in conjunction with drugs for cancer treatment. Power levels from 3.0 to 10.0 kW and frequencies of 150–450 kHz are offered. A fiber optic temperature sensor system is included to measure the temperature response of the nanoparticles when subjected to magnetic field strengths of 600 kGauss and more. Supplied software allows the recording of the temperature, frequency, power, and magnetic field strength during heating trials.

Optical Encoders

Two new high-precision optical encoders are available from Micromo, Clearwater, FL. Both of the Faulhaber IER3 and IERS3 encoders deliver two channel quadrature signals and an additional index signal. A micro DC motor or a brushless DC servo motor can be positioned with a typical accuracy of 0.1– 0.3°, making the encoders ideal for highprecision positioning applications. The encoders can be combined with series CXR and CR graphite-commutated Faulhaber micro DC motors, starting with a diameter of 22 mm, and with Faulhaber series BX4 and BP4 brushless DC servo motors. The encoders and their motor combinations can also be used with the Faulhaber MC3/MCS motion control family.
