Throughout the 1990s, the Ethernet market had outgrown its humble beginnings of connecting PCs in schools and offices. The decade saw the beginning of industrial devices that could communicate over the now ubiquitous interface.
Smart cameras have come along way and have a promising inspection technology By Dr. Phil Heil While machine vision has made enormous strides in recent years, it has just scratched the surface in terms of the vast potential it has in the manufacturing industry worldwide.
Congress enacted the Energy Policy Act of 1992, which granted DOE the authority to set minimum efficiency standards for certain classes of electric motors. EPAct rules for motors became effective October 24, 1997. All affected motors sold in the U.S.
DOE estimates that systems driven by industrial electric motors account for about 23 percent of all electricity sold in the U.S. (679 billion kWh). Motors for industrial space heating, cooling, and ventilation systems use an additional 68 billion kWh.
By Lisa Arrigo, Editor in Chief This month's Q&A examines the high stakes involved in motor selection. The following interview with David Brender, P.E., an expert on motor efficiency, shows how efficiency ties into the bottom line.
Water-cooled PowerMod HVPS 30 high-voltage power supplies are configured for specific application, including voltage, average and peak power, ripple, regulation, and agency approvals.
The GPHP600/700 series of switch-mode power supplies is designed to be easily customized and is available in stand-alone or rack-mount versions. Power rating is 600 to 700 W, output voltage is 24 to 48 Vdc, and input is 90-264 Vac 47-63 Hz single phase.
Four new regulated dc power supplies the 87788700000, a single-phase input, 20 A output unit; and a trio of three-phase input units with 10, 20, and 40 A outputs have 24 Vdc output (adjustable to 28 V). The three-phase units are the 8708700000, 8708710000, and 8708730000.
By Peter Cleaveland, Technical Editor DC supplies power the infrastructure that keeps industry going. They provide the low-voltage power that makes the relays click, the PLCs control, and the inidcator lights shine, and they do it at low cost and with high reliability.
The LC8 is a servo amplifier/controller for LJ, LG, and LTF Series actuators. Up to seven LC8s can

The RSA3408A is a high-performance dc to 8 GHz analyzer that provides real-time triggering and capture capabilities. Its enhanced resolution enables engineers to view RF signal instabilities and transients that were previously not possible.
Atlas SpinTite units are designed for use in â€œblindâ€ attachment applications, where only one side of a workpiece is accessible for fastener installation and final component assembly.
The new Model SMTRH is designed for precision ultra-low volume sub-microliter dispensing making it suitable for medical diagnostic, biomedical, and analytical instrumentation. The pump is driven by a precision stepper motor and will dispense from 500 nL to 5 L per dispense.
An addition to Monorail BM linear guideway accessories is designed as an alternative to the traditional plastic caps that cover the counter-bored mounting holes in a profile rail of a precision linear guideway assembly.
