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
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
