This motion control card is the first to communicate and supply power at the same time using an Ethernet bus, working at distances up to several thousand yards. It has an integrated Web server, using Ethernet protocol to control 10-48V dc brush motors. It can work with protocols like http and TCP-IP that are already embedded in most major computer operating systems, plus it runs from an Ethernet cable at powers up to 15W (card + motor), using the latest IEEE 802.3af standards. An external power supply allows the card to work at up to 70W continuous and 140W max. Its embedded RISC processor has a 4-quadrant, 32-bit RISC PID regulator, refreshing power regulation of to 4KHz with a sampling rate of 20-2,000Hz, so it can control brushed dc motors by position and speed, and position with a trapezoidal speed profile. They come in a variety of available modes.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
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.
