MOTION CONTROL: WAGO Corp. has added a UPS Controller (and batteries), as well as Buffer and Redundancy modules to the 787 Series Advanced Power Supply line. The 787 Series modules minimize downtime by shielding complex automation systems and components from common disturbances (e.g., voltage fluctuations, harmonic distortion and outages).Encapsulated in a robust, DIN-rail mount metal housing, every module includes three LEDs, and at least one signal output status LED (varies per model). To ensure reliability, the modules utilize CAGE CLAMP® Spring Pressure Connection Technology for fast, easy and maintenance-free terminations.
UPS Uninterruptible Power Supply Controller Packed with Exclusives
WAGO-exclusive free configuration and monitoring software is bundled with the 787 Series UPS Controller for convenient custom configuration, diagnostics and monitoring. The 787 Series UPS is also the only one of its kind that provides both an LCD/keypad and RS-232 interface. Under normal operation, the UPS controller charges the 787 Series battery. During an outage, the UPS controller engages the battery, preventing data loss. In addition to free software, the UPS Controller operates at 95 percent efficiency, and boasts an operating temperature range of -10C to 60C.
Capacitive Buffer and Redundancy Modules
During shorter power interruptions such as brownouts, the 787 Series buffer module protects data. The 787 Series redundancy modules safeguard two power supplies that are parallel-connected to provide system redundancy or additional power.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
