Re: Encoder Basics

Thanks tb, I appreciate the clarification. Also with regard to encoders, through some additional reading I found a diagram via Dynapar as being a helpful tool for those less familiar, like myself, to delineate the semantics of encoder classification. http://www.dynapar.com/uploadedFiles/_Site_Root/T...

Re: Touch Screen Monitors

What's everyone's opinion on ELO Monitors?

I might have a source on some Elo 21.5" E497002 Pro-Cap 10-Point Touch displays on-par or better than ASUS VT207 pricing.

This alternative unit of measurement lifestyle (oz·in) , (lb·in), etc... In my opinion, it reads like a individual stating their age in weeks. Nonetheless is there...
