A Smart Logic Controller
eliminates ancillary equipment to reduce installed costs, and main disconnects
and integral fusing reduces panel space requirements. Dedicated pump functions
simplify programming and commissioning. An optional one-wire Safe Stop can
reduce installed costs for applications with safe operation requirements.
All VLT Automation VT Drives feature an integrated dc link to eliminate
the need for external filters. Intelligent Heat Management removes excessive
heat to promote maximum drive operating life and has an ambient temperature
rating of 50C.
VLT Automation VT Drives
provide autotuning of PI-controllers to eliminate the potential for tuning, and
password protection reduces the potential for unauthorized changes to the drive
settings. They are available in a variety of industrial enclosures, from
protected chassis to IP66 (NEMA 4X indoor), suitable for harsh washdown
environments - without the need for customized panels. These drives provide
multiple language support to display all information in a user-selected
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
