Zettlex are pleased to announce their collaboration with the UK’s Science & Technology Facility Council to develop a cryogenic or ultra-low temperature encoder. The objective is to develop and test an IncOder capable of operating in high vacuum and below -170Celsius. The first units will be tested at the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh in their cryogenic laboratories. The test data will be used by Zettlex to develop and market a variant of IncOder aimed at ultra-low temperature, high vacuum environments. A wide variety of modern equipment uses cryogenics such as medical scanners, particle detectors, forward looking infrared and advanced cooling systems.
