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.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
