The latest in the Trust Automation drive line, the TA330 offers configuration for three-phase dc brushless servo motors using Hall Effect sensors, three-phase ac brushless motors with sinusoidal commutation, single-phase dc brushed servo motors in bridged mode, and brushless linear motors. Its zero cogging, lack of torque ripple, and smooth motion make it perfect for "very high resolution" inspection systems, metrology instruments and medical applications. With a 24-V input for powering logic and bias supplies, it has low electrical noise, yet runs at 150V, 900W continuous (2700W peak), and offers on-the-fly torque control changes. An internal logic and bias supply option is available, too. It measures 14.9 (37.9 mm) x 7.7 (19.5mm) x 4.7 inches (11.9mm)
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
