TB Woods has released its new X5 UltraFlex AC Drive for ac motor control. The new X5 features overlapping standards from the X4 including option boards and a range in horse power of 5 to 200 hp.
Additional X5 features include a built-in real-time clock for timer settings, a new easy-to-read display and a USB port for additional data connectivity. The USB port is intended for future expansion but is also used for collecting data from the ac drive and for saving and cloning a particular configuration across multiple drives via a memory stick.
Applications are suitable for any sort of heavy duty ac motor, including fans and grinders. Price range varies by horse power, voltage and distributor, but falls between $1,500 and $10,000.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
