Maxon's EPOS2 24/2 was developed
specifically for commanding and controlling in the CANopen network. USB and
RS232 are available as further communication interfaces. The variety of
operating modes, such as position, velocity and current mode, means they can be
used in automation technology, tool building and in mechatronic drive systems.
There are also functions such as Step/Direction Mode for the incrementally
controlled movement of the motor shaft or Master Encoder Mode for applying the
drive as electronic gearing. Commanding through an analog set value voltage may
replace conventional servo amplifier applications.
The EPOS2 24/2 features motion control functionalities, offering a dual loop
position and speed controller. In Interpolated Position Mode (PVT), the position
controller is able to synchronously follow a path set by support points. During
start-up, current, speed or position controls can be set through enhanced Regulation
Tuning. This intelligent solution is easy to use and again highlights the
benefits of the positioning controller.
Commanding can take place using CAN Master, for example EPOS2 P, SPS, Soft SPS,
PLC or using PC via USB or RS232. Several drives can be networked and
coordinated through the standardized CANopen interface. Additionally integrated
gateway functions such as USB to CAN or RS232 to CAN help simplify access to
the CAN network.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
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.
