The BOS-Ecoline enclosure system from Rose+Bopla combines custom sizing advantages of aluminium profiles with the cost- effectiveness of ABS plastic end caps to create a robust enclosure. Available in three different versions—closed, open on one side, or split profiles— these clear anodized aluminium profiles come in four profile width sizes from 57.5 to 120 mm, and are equipped with integral guide grooves for PC boards. Two different ABS plastic end caps are available, with or without wall brackets. Profiles feature recessed areas for membrane keypads. IP 40 rating is standard, but can be increased to IP 54 on ELP and ELPH profiles with seals and end caps. Rose+Bopla Enclosures Booth 15077

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
