CF-Robot 9 is a hybrid control
cable that is available shielded or unshielded. CF-Robot 8 is a shielded bus
cable, while CF-Robot 4 is a shielded position-feedback cable. CF-Robot 6 and
CF-Robot 7 are servo-motor cables that are available shielded or unshielded.
All five are oil resistant and flame retardant.
5 is a fiber-optic cable with a TPE outer jacket. It is oil and UV resistant
and flexible at low temperatures
with a minimum bend radius of 12.5 times its diameter. CF-Robot
is the original single core, shielded cable of the range, which is PVC free and
oil- and UV-resistant.
is suitable for multi-axis cable carriers, such as igus' Triflex R cable
carrier, which is designed to protect moving cables and hoses on
six-axis robots. Triflex
R is able to move through all axes and can twist up to 380 degrees per yard,
enabling easy movement through complex configurations.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
