Techline developed the Snap Track Cable Tray in response to
repeated requests for a complete cable tray system designed for limited-width
requirements of instrumentation data cable. Snap Track was designed to provide
the ease of installation and the economy of wire basket, while retaining the
stability and inherently superior cable protection of traditional raceway. Snap
Track is based on the feedback from numerous leading instrument manufacturers,
engineers, integrators, contractors and network cable providers to create a
complete UL Classified cable tray system. Snap Track is designed to be
installed without nuts, bolts or tools. This is accomplished by using its
patented "Push Pin" technology. The system is available in 2-, 4- and 6-inch
widths, with load bearing tests that are twice those of most traditional trays.
It was designed with cost-savings in mind and offers customer and industry the
ability to install cable tray in a fraction of time compared to traditional
trays. Using the patented "Push Pin" technology, inward C-Configuration and
slide-in fittings, Snap Track offers the quickest installation and highest
level of cable and wire protection, according to the company.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
