The ViX Drive/Controller from Parker Motion uses all-digital technology to offer up to 8A RMS continuous in a compact (4.9 ื 1.65 ื 3.35 inches) space-savings package. The unit offers selectable resolution from 200 to 51,200 steps/rev and operates on low power (24 to 80V dc). Wizard-based configuration software offers advanced capabilities for registration, following, position maintenance, stall detection and conditional statements. Flexible communications include standard RS232 and optional RS485/CANopen interface. For technical information on the ViX Stepper Drive/Controller, visit http://rbi.ims.ca/4919-524.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
