Measuring only 2.00 x 4.00 x 1.10 inches, the single output CFM101S Series has a universal 90-264V ac input, and output voltages of 12, 15, 20, 24 or 48V dc. Units feature power factor correction (meets EN61000-3-2) and achieve efficiencies to 85 percent. Additional features are built in short circuit and over voltage protection along with convection cooled operation in ambient temperatures range from 0 to +40C.
Units are RoHS compliant and have UL, cUL and TUV safety certifications and meet the conducted EMI requirements CISPR/FCC Class B. Pricing is in the low $30’s in OEM quantities and are in full production with deliveries from stock in 6-8 weeks.
Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
