Honda Civic Hybrid (http://rbi.ims.ca/4921-546). The 2006 Civic Hybrid connects a 20 hp/76 ft-lb permanent magnet motor to a four-cylinder spark ignition engine to provide a total of 110 hp at 6,000 rpm. Mounted behind the rear seat, the Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) contains the battery and its controls, the inverter for the motor, the air conditioning inverter, and a dc-to-dc converter. The hybrid's Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery has a rated capacity of 5.5 Ah and high voltage output of 158V. To warn service personnel and others of the presence of high voltage (greater than 60V), high-voltage cables that interconnect these components are color coded orange as identified in SAE-J1127.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
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
