Series 285 Power Clamp will accept up to 3/0 wire size and can be commoned by a jumper located above the conductor connection area, allowing for maximum conductor size.
Designed for terminating large conductors on control panels and medium-voltage power panels, these DIN rail-mounted terminal blocks offer a current rating of 232A and rated voltage of 1,000V. Spring clamping accepts conductors from 4 AWG to 3/0.
To insert a conductor, simply actuate the cam by making a 3/8 turn using an 8-mm T-wrench. This depresses the spring and opens the conductor insertion area; a locking tab holds the spring in place keeping the wire entrance open. The operator can now use both hands while working to terminate the wire. Once the wire is inserted, the operator makes an additional 1/4 turn with the 8-mm T-wrench, which releases the locking tab and secures the conductor.
Resistivity of the connection is lower than the inherent conductor resistivity, preventing heat buildup. At catastrophic voltage, the conductor fails before the connection.
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
