Lenze Americas' OKS coatings can be applied to the motor and/or
components depending upon the degree of protection required in the end-user
application. OKS-G (primed) and OKS-S (standard paint) coatings provide
protection in indoor installations in heated rooms with air humidity up to 90
percent. The OKS-M application-optimized paint is for use in indoor
installations in unheated rooms or in a protected outdoor installation with air
humidity up to 95 percent. The OKS-L paint will withstand outdoor installation
and air humidity exceeding 95 percent.
Tested in accordance with DIN 50017 (Condensation Water) and
DIN 50021 (Salt-Spray), the OKS surface coatings exhibited 240 - 400 hour
durability in condensation tests and 150 - 200 hour durability in salt-spray
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.
