Providing positioning control for brushless, dc brush, or stepping motors, Aerotech's Soloist combines a power supply, an amplifier and a position controller into a single, compact package.
Available with as much as 30A peak current, the unit provides servo-loop autotuning, a digital current loop and a single-axis position-synchronized output (PSO). Programs and parameters are stored in nonvolatile Flash memory.
The Soloist can manage as many as four tasks simultaneously and handle variables and manage I/O for demanding production applications. It has high-speed position-latch inputs and advanced data-logging capabilities for laboratory, test and industrial applications.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
