The latest in the Trust Automation drive line, the TA330 offers configuration for three-phase dc brushless servo motors using Hall Effect sensors, three-phase ac brushless motors with sinusoidal commutation, single-phase dc brushed servo motors in bridged mode, and brushless linear motors. Its zero cogging, lack of torque ripple, and smooth motion make it perfect for "very high resolution" inspection systems, metrology instruments and medical applications. With a 24V input for powering logic and bias supplies, it has low electrical noise, yet runs at 150V, 900W continuous (2700W peak), and offers on-the-fly torque control changes. An internal logic and bias supply option is available, too. It measures 14.9 inches (37.9 mm) x 7.7 inches (19.5 mm) x 4.7 inches (11.9 mm) Trust Automation Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-629
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
