Controller can handle any vehicle type, wheel configuration and
navigation technology, including laser, spot, range, EyeWay, magnetic tape or
inductive wire. The CVC600 is 125 x 50 x 195 mm and has a rugged
IP65-classified design that is highly immune to vibrations, unstable power
supplies, temperature variations, humidity and dust. It supports 24 to 48 V
operations, with built-in under voltage, over voltage and reverse polarity protection.
It is also energy efficient, consuming a maximum of 5 W of power and is rated
for use in temperatures ranging from -20 to +55C. The CVC600 also offers
support for WLAN, LAN, CAN, RS232/422/485 communication.
It is a useful solution for
automating standard lift trucks with limited space for add-ons.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
