This motor's integrated design puts the motor, frequency drive and embedded microprocessor board, including speed and position encoder, all in one device, allowing precise motion profiles with less auxiliary equipment. Three binary input signals allow up to eight preconfigured motion steps, including speed, position and torque, to be selected. Two analog input signals, for speed and position, can be used for more flexibility. A PROFIBUS interface version, with a CANbus in development, is available for multi-axes systems or installations with multiple linear motion applications. All pertinent information can be transferred to and from the smart motor drive system via one serial communications cable.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
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.
