New firmware for protocol support and CAN network integration
This supervisor offers full multi-axis motion control when combined with intelligent servo drivers. It offers new firmware supporting DS305 configuration, DS402 motion control and DS401 CAN network IO integration protocols. It is also integrated with CAN network IOs, according to DS401 protocol. It uses distributed motion control architecture to spread the processing power across the network. It relieves the burden on the system's processor by instructing Elmo's servo drives to perform tasks without monitoring by the system. It can work as an Ethernet-CAN gateway and a full motion controller. It has two CAN ports, each of which can handle up to 64 axes. Other ports handle up to 16 digital inputs, 16 digital outputs and four analog inputs. Elmo Motion Controlhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4928-628
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
