Electronic technologies are helping reduce energy costs by tracking energy thieves. Moscow Incotex Co. Ltd. is implementing automated meter management systems throughout Russia and the Ukraine, collecting information from consumer energy meters over power lines. A key goal is to prevent theft and pinpoint the location of energy losses. Incotexís Mercury PLC AMR sends signals between the utility and meter over power lines. Modules transmit data at up to 100 different frequencies in two directions, ensuring reliable transmission over noisy lines that were not built to handle communications traffic. Texas Instrumentís MSP430 microcontroller and TMS320C2000 digital signal controller are used to handle data and maintain signal reliability.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
