The Bosch Rexroth IndraDrive Cs compact servo drive offers Ethernet-based communications, a universal interface and supports SERCOS III, ProfiNet, EtherNet/IP and EtherCat communications, all in one compact design. Its universal, multi-encoder interface offers a variety of logic interfaces and Rexroth MSM servo motor options. Both digital and analog inputs and outputs are available, plus an intelligent operation panel with programming module functions. For extra functionality and overall cost savings, it can add a drive-based PLC integrating motion and logic and Safety On Board drive-based machine safety. Choose from models ranging between 50W and 3.5 kW.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
