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.

As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
