MOTION CONTROL: Lenze-acTech announces the release of additional I/O Modules for SMVector NEMA 1 and NEMA 4X Inverters. Available in two configurations, ESVZAL0, and ESVZAL1, the modules supplement the standard I/O functions by providing one programmable form C relay output (ESVZAL0) or one programmable form C relay output and two programmable digital inputs (ESVZAL1).
The I/O modules do not add to the overall size of the SMVector inverter as they fit right into the SMVector inverter terminal cover, allowing for easy field installation.
The SMVector inverter drive provides four modes of operation - V/Hz, Enhanced V/Hz, Vector Speed, and Torque - plus high starting torque, auto-tuning, advanced low-speed control and dynamic speed regulation.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
