CUI Inc.'s6 W model is part of their VOF series that
covers a range of power from 6 through 80W. All units offer leakage currents
below 0.3 mA. The VOF-6 provides continuous output power,
universal input (85-264V ac) and is offered in 3.3, 5, 12, 15, and 24V dc
output voltages. The VOF-6 measures 2.2 x 1.4 x 0.65 inch.
Protections for over voltage and over current conditions are included. This
series is useful for consumer, industrial, and ITE applications.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
