A patented modular mounting and wiring system for control panels, called "Quick Fit" technology, is available only with TeSys D Line motor starters and reportedly achieves 80% wiring, 50% time, and 30% space savings compared to conventional hard wired control panels.
Snap-in, finger-safe connectors eliminate the need for cables or tools when making motor starter power and control connections, saving on installation wiring, time, and space.
The power connection modules boost spring terminal current capacity from the 12-18A range, up to 32A, such that up to eight starters (63A max.) can be mounted on the bus that is powered by a single incoming line.
Smaller, dc, low-consumption contactors consume 75% less power (2.4W) than traditional dc contactor coils, reducing power requirements and supply size to free up control panel space.

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
