Siemens Industry Inc.'s Speed Connect is a
new quick release mechanism that protects against vibration shakeout on its
Motion-Connect line of power and signal cables. Motion-Connect cables are offered
as standard on all Siemens motion control systems. The
Speed Connect release makes installation and changeover, even in very
restricted space applications, fast and easy. No tools are required; just a one-quarter
turn locks or unlocks the bayonet-style connectors.
All Siemens Motion-Connect cables are system-tested to
guarantee performance in any motion control system, whether in a Sinumerik CNC machine
tool or Simotion general motion control application. These cables are also compatible with Sinamics
drive systems and all families of Siemens induction, direct drive and
servomotors. Motion-Connect cables are fully shielded to prevent EMC noise
emissions and protect the motion control system from ambient environmental
noise. Motion-Connect cables are certified to CE, VDE, UL and UL/CSA
George Leopold's talk at last week's Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis helped restore astronaut and engineer Gus Grissom's role in the beginnings of NASA, and outlined how Grissom played a pivotal role in winning the Space Race.
