New STAC6 Stepper Drives offer sophisticated motion algorithms and increased levels of programmability. The drives offer current output up to 6A, direct ac input without a transformer, bus voltages up to 200V ac and software selectable resolutions from 200 to 51,200 steps/rev at speeds up to 133 rps. New DSP-based algorithms focus on anti-resonance technology, demand signal smoothing, torque ripple smoothing and microstep emulation for systems that require low step resolutions. Self-Test and Auto-Setup features measure and configure motor parameters automatically. Macro assembly language programming provides register manipulation, conditional processing, math functions, multi-tasking capabilities, plus pulse & direction and encoder following capabilities for electronic gearing.

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
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.
