The Automation 3200 controller from Aerotech (http://rbi.ims.ca/4929-507) integrates the HMI and control tasks in one unified control environment to create an intelligent motion, vision, PLC, robotics and I/O platform. The 3200 offers software-only controller (NMotion SMC) capable of 32 axes of synchronized motion through one interface.
A distributed control architecture enables it to maintain performance independent of the number of axes being controlled. An intelligent network drive (NDrive) handles position and current-loop closure. Trajectory generation is done on the PC using the Windows® operating system. The PC executes programs and sends the incremental position commands to the NDrive via the high-speed serial bus IEEE-1394 (FireWire®).
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
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.
