The Productivity3000 is a modularized Multi-faceted Programmable
Controller which solves logic with a high speed processor based on logical
inputs and updates logical outputs for manipulating process and machine control
applications. With multiple communication interfaces for control, monitoring
and database connectivity, the P3-550 CPU offers unmatched built-in
communications capabilities including USB for programming and data collecting,
Ethernet for programming, external Modbus TCP device connectivity,
and remote I/O connections. Serial RS-232 & RS-485 ports offer Modbus RTU,
ASCII and customer protocol capabilities for connecting peripheral devices. The
modular design allows for more precise design customization to fit your
specific application needs. The high performance CPU includes 50 Mb of user
memory giving you freedom to program without limits and storing all
documentation on-board. Tagname based programming means increased productivity
with descriptive nomenclature for all tags and one less step in documentation. Our
Ethernet enabled GS series Drives can be connected to the internal Ethernet
Remote I/O network and automatically discovered in your project's hardware
configuration. You can configure all parameters for the individually connected
drives and save those configurations to your project. If a field replacement is
necessary, the saved drive configuration is transferred to the new drive upon
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
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.
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.
