This next generation of adjustable speed drives from Baldor has the capacity to continue operations during brief power outages and low line voltage or phase loss conditions, the company says. The H2 drive reduces power or uses motor inertia to continue operations during brief electrical transients. An enhanced keypad provides five lines of English text. The drive uses Space Vector Technology to generate more torque than Sine-Triangle modulation technology, Baldor says.

PTC will offer a virtual desktop environment for its Creo product design applications, potentially freeing engineers to run them from remote desktops on a variety of operating systems and mobile devices.
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
