Anaheim, CA -- Phoenix Contact introduced its new online
selection and design software, called Combicon Select, at Wescon this week. The
service helps designers choose printed circuit board terminal blocks, and
provides them with downloadable 2D or 3D layout data that is ready to import
into their CAD designs via DXF, IGES, STEP, and VRML.
The service aims to help customers save design, production, and
installation time, says Greg Jerrehian, Product Manager. Engineers can use the
software online, or on CD-ROM. One benefit to the online approach is that it is
A series of menu choices walks users through the current, voltage,
pin spacing and position, conductor connection system, and direction and type of
mounting in order to narrow down the available options. Once a user finds the
product needed, he or she can download a solid model of it with just a click.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
