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.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
