This new software allows Windows-based PCs to directly access all Delta RMC70- and RMC100-Series motion controllers, allowing the ability to read and write registers, and the ability to read bits and issue commands, all over a serial port or Ethernet access. It has a number of sample programs and multi-language support. It works well with data acquisition and testing applications, offering Virtual Instrument components for National Instruments' LabVIEW, a common product used with RMC motion controllers in NDT and cyclical testing applications. The software offers several interfaces to work with languages such as Visual C#, Visual Basic .NET, Visual J#, Visual C++, Visual Basic 5.0/6.0, Visual Basic for Applications and LabVIEW.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
