Innov-X Systems has posted an online video demonstration produced to help companies learn about handheld XRF RoHS compliance screening products. The portable, handheld EDXRF is designed to be a non-destructive, low-cost tool to determine whether a product, sub-assembly or component contains hazardous materials banned by the European Union’s RoHS directive.
The video produced by Innov-X Systems allows viewers immediate access to a demo of the XRF unit at their desktops. It also provides detailed information about the Innov-X Analyzer capabilities when used with the company’s RoHS-Star software. “This video is just one part of our commitment to helping electronic component suppliers, OEMs and contract manufacturers mitigate the impact of RoHS,” says Don Sackett, CEO of Innov-X.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
