This compact unit includes a bipolar, 1.8-degree NEMA 17 step motor, along with an integrated microstepping driver and intelligent controller. Its affordable design needs no outside equipment. RoHS-compliant versions are available upon request. It comes in 2.76, 2.99 and 3.31-inch lengths and puts out up to 85 o-inches of holding torque, depending on motor stack size, with custom windings available for free. It has output currents of 0.1 to 1.5 amps peak, input voltage of 7V dc to 28V dc, and 16 kbytes of onboard memory. It has a general-purpose input switch for manual motor positioning and an open collector output switch that can put out 100 mA. It can be programmed for stand-alone operation with no PC, and has low enough power dissipation that it needs no heat sink. Its StallGuard™ stall detection feature means no encoders are needed.
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
