MagneTek's microsize GPD 205 adjustable frequency drives are now available in 460V ac models. The new models come in four incremental ratings from 0.5 to 3 hp. Although only a fraction of the size of conventional PWM drives, the GPD 205 is said to be useful for sophisticated equipment control in applications that include fans, pumps, mixers, agitators, compressors, conveyors, commercial laundry, and material-handling installations. The drive's 16-bit microprocessor provides the flexibility, features, and performance for a wide range of operational requirements. It installs and programs easily, has the versatility to adapt to simple or complex applications, and is UL-listed, CSA-approved, and CE-marked. MagneTek Drives & Systems. Product Code 4361
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
