igusÂ® now offers a bus cable for the industrial serial field
bus CC-Link system. The data transmission properties of Chainflex CFBUS.035 conform to CC-Link
specifications and have been tested by the global coordinating office, CC-Links
Partners Association (CLPA), in Japan.
shielded bus cable's structure and materials have both been optimized to meet
the highly dynamic conditions found in cable-carrier applications. With an
abrasion-proof, TPE outer jacket, a gusset-filling extruded inner jacket and an
optimized short pitch length, millions of bending cycles are possible in
cable-carrier systems. CFBUS.035 has an outer diameter of 0.33 inches (8.5mm),
a DESINA-conforming sheath color, and is available pre-assembled with any
standard industrial connector.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
