Using an 8-pole segmented-stator design for increased energy density and efficiency, the SmartMotorsT SM3416DT-PLS2 integrated servo motor from Animatics packs greater than 900 Watts of peak power, over 1 HP, into the cube-shaped NEMA Size 34 package.
Available in configurations with resistance ranges from 1 O to 230 O, 2 O to 13.5 kO, and 3 O to 1.5M O with 18, 9 and 6 channels respectively, the PCI-based Model 50-297 Precision Resistor card has software interfaces for all popular programming environments based on simple resistance calls for each channel.
Google Inc. is making half a million books, unprotected by copyright, available for free on Sony Corp.'s electronic book-reading device, the companies were set to announce Thursday. It's the first time Google has made its vast trove of scanned public-domain books available to an e-book device, and vaults the Sony Reader past Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle as the device with the largest available library, at about 600,000 books.
Double Layer Capacitors with capacitances up to 3000 F developed by WIMA are suitable for energy storage where charge or discharge of high loads at a short time is needed. They are available as WIMA SuperCap C with cylindrical case or as WIMA SuperCap R with rectangular case. These capacitors are cascaded to
The DA2005 dual-scale insulation tester from Protek provides 0 to 100,000 MO insulation resistance measurements at 2,500 V on a dual-range analog scale plus output HV monitoring on a built-in 3½ digit LCD. Complete with built-in high-voltage probe, the device measures 1000 MO to 100, 000 MO resistances on the green analog scale and 0 to 2,000 MO on the red analog scale.
Day after day, reports of the dangers of climate and climate change circulate in the news, often filled with confusing data and debate. In an effort to improve understanding of climate science, a group of government agencies has combined efforts to produce "Climate Literacy: The Essential Principles of Climate Science."
Although engineers have used analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) for some time, newer ADCs aimed at audio applications can put design skills to the test. The audio signal chain in current products and new designs can involve more stringent design requirements than engineers have faced in the industrial world.
Well-suited for solid-state architectural and commercial lighting applications, the 3-W ASMT-MT00 Moonstone LED from Avago Technologies delivers 108 lumens and can be independently controlled to enable color-changing and mixing as well as white output.
USB v1.1 and v2.0 compliant, Advantech’s USB-4604B and USB-4604BM USB to 4-port RS-232 and USB to 4-port RS-232/422/485 converters provide a novel type-B USB connector with thumbscrews to ensure connection despite vibration or inadvertent tugging on the cable.
Under the current global economic recession, February 2009 large-size TFT-LCD Panel Shipments was up after 5 month. Displaybank, a market research company focused in Display industry (www.displaybank.com) announced that 2009 February large-size TFT-LCD panel shipments increased 26.3% M/M at 30.1 million pieces.
