DC2-STN stand-alone, two-axis servo controller has two auxiliary outputs for stepper control. This 9.5 X 4 X 5-inch unit has back-panel-mounting tabs and removable/pluggable screw terminals for easy wiring. The controller features a RS232 communication interface for programming and networking; 32K non-volatile memory to store macros, programs, and point information; opto-isolated I/O at industrial voltage levels; status LEDs; and a watchdog relay output for external monitoring. The DC2-STN's multi-tasking capability permits as many as four independent tasks or routines to run simul-taneously without interrupting motion control.

Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
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.
