GE Multilin has released their MM300 Motor Manager for low-voltage motors. The company claims the new compact motor manager provides protection, control automation, metering, communications and advanced diagnostics, and is compatible with most NEMA and IEC control centers.
With automatic I/O assignment and predefined control logic, the MM300 is ready to use out of the box, but is also customizable. The MM300 communicates using Modbus, as well as DeviceNet and Profibus DP protocols.
The MM300 can be integrated into a new or existing HMI, DCS or SCADA system and provides continuous monitoring. The MM300 also allows for greater process availability by reducing auxiliary devices.
Because of its compact size and multifunction capabilities, the GE MM300 doesn’t take up much space or require many components. “These devices go into Motor Control Centers, which typically contain dozens of equipment racks,” says Brett Johnson, marketing communications manager for GE Multilin. “In the future, the local PLC racks in the Center will be eliminated.”
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.
