The new CDS-3310 single-axis controller and drive system from Galil Motion Control provides high performance, precise control for a single brush or brushless servo motor. It combines a programmable motion controller and 500W drive in a single compact package that eliminates the need for external wiring between the controller and drive.
The unit includes PID compensation with notch filter and velocity/acceleration feedforward, non-volatile program memory, digital and analog I/O, and modes for electronic gearing and teach-and-playback. It also accepts differential-encoder inputs up to 12 MHz and provides dual encoder inputs that enable it to accommodate electronic gearing or dual-loop applications.
Packaged in a compact 5.15 x 8.25-inch metal enclosure, the CDS-3310 controller and drive unit is priced at $495 in 100-unit quantities.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
