Eaton Corp.'s XV and XP Series is a new line of
operator interfaces designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). They
provide customers with flexibility in design, communications and application.
The XV and XP Series have a broad array of serial and Ethernet connectivity
options and are rated for global applications in a slim, light-weight OEM
design. With Eaton's new advanced operator interface solutions, customers can
create web-based applications for the manufacturing environment to enhance
their ability to diagnose machine faults, prevent downtime, reduce maintenance
costs and improve process effectiveness.
model comes with Eaton's Visual Designer software for OEMs and is designed for
interoperability, simplicity and security. It is powerful, intuitive and allows
for the quick design and implementation of graphical user interface (GUI)
solutions. The user interface helps make advanced features easier to implement,
including: data archiving, recipe management, multi-language, Structured Query
Language (SQL) database access and web serving.
addition to basic monitor and control, Visual Designer software has a wide
array of advanced features that help streamline the design of sophisticated
applications. Simplified yet powerful security means that the same local user
accounts and passwords for viewing and control also apply remotely. Visual
Designer software allows Eaton's XV and XP Series to communicate with a variety
of networks, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), web clients and databases.
new XV and XP Series are available in a variety of screen sizes, ranging from
3.5 to 15-inch and a blind node. All models include both serial and Ethernet
ports. Other connectivity and memory options include Secure Digital (SD),
CompactFlash, USB and multiple Ethernet ports.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
