MOTION CONTROL: OMEGA’s new CE compliant TRCN440 series turbidity analyzers are available in three models. The TRCN441 is designed for medium to high turbidity ranges, the TRCN442 targets lower turbidity ranges ideally from 10 to 100 NTU and is ideal for applications in the beverage industry, mining and water treatment. Lastly, the TRCN443 is specifically designed for ultra low turbidity readings below 10 NTU for applications like drinking water and pure water. All models are compact in design, are light weight with the NEMA 4X (IP67), and include local indication, transmitter outputs and control outputs. Price starts at $2,450
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
