Engineers at Nyden Corporation have created a new 6-axis VME Bus System motion control board. It uses the LSI MPG2031 ultra-high-speed pulse generator chips to provide point-to-point, coordinated linear, and circular interpolation for complex motion profiles. Designed for use with steppers and digital servos at the same time, the PG106 VME controller generates smooth S-curve, trapezoidal, and complex movement profiles. High speed pulse rate outputs to 1.6384 MHz offer users high throughput. Acceleration and deceleration of each axis can be set independently, and the controller is able to perform synchronized as well as independent movements. Nyden Corporation, Product Code 4171.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
