Powercore technology integrates power and data management directly within the fixture, eliminating the need for external power supplies. The LED-based system accepts a universal power input range from 100 to 240V ac and receives data in a Digital MultipleXed (DMX) (lighting-specific) or Ethernet protocol. Microchip's dsPIC30F2010 digital signal controller (DSC) operates all internal functions, including power factor correction, communications and driving the LEDs. In addition to controlled power-up, the DSC's integration level allows the power stages to be extremely simple and very robust.

As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
