AutomationDirect's Gladiatorcompact fusible switchesare a single-pole, two-pole and triple-pole ac devices available in Class CCand Midget fuse models. Single-phase dc devices are also available. The 35mmDIN rail mountable switches' compact size takes up one-third the space of amolded circuit breaker and two-thirds the space of traditional fusibleswitches, saving space in control panels. The full voltage rating of up to 600Vac (80V dc) allows installation flexibility in many applications where feederand branch circuit protection are required. Equipped with lockout/tagoutcapability and finger safe construction, Gladiator switches promote safeworkplace practices by preventing contact with live components. Open fuseindication provides faster troubleshooting and reduced downtime.
Class CC fuse models are UL98listed and have a 200kA Short-Circuit Current Rating; Midget Class fuse modelsare UL 508 listed and have a 10kA Short-Circuit Current Rating. A 5A auxiliarycontact with one normally-open and one normally-closed contact is alsoavailable.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
