The XRM Series of 50W modular high-voltage power supplies are for analytical X-ray applications. An integral filament supply provides regulated dc current as well as local and remote emission control. The supplies are in a 6.3 X 3.937 X 10-inch package and are available in four models with output voltages from 25 to 65 kV, and up to 2 mA. The supplies are voltage- and current-programmable and feature output inhibit control via a TTL signal.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
