BX4 Series of Brushless DC Servomotors
MICROMO
  BX4 Series of Brushless DC Servomotors

Using the latest production methods, some specially developed by FAULHABER, the company has constructed a modular design that is limited to just a few components which entirely eliminates the need for adhesive-bonded joints.

Despite the compact dimensions, the new four-pole concept of the series ensures a high continuous torque of up to 12.2 mNm, with a flat gradient of the n/M characteristic curve. Notable features are the smooth running characteristics and the particularly low noise level.

Thanks to its electronic commutation, the brushless servo motor series is characterized by a much longer service life than mechanically commutated drives.

  Top Considerations When Selecting a 32-bit ARM Microcontroller

Selecting the right 32-bit ARM microcontroller shouldn't mean you have to compromise on your requirements. In addition to meeting your specific memory and I/O needs, it should also offer the integration, peripherals, and power budget that gives you the most options and the best cost profile for your system.

Download this white paper from Silicon Labs to learn about the latest innovations in 32-bit MCUs and get tips on how to select the best MCU for your design.

  Find Out How RPM Impacts Torque Output

Using a power tool during the assembly process, there are many things to consider to achieve proper torque control. Is the joint hard or soft? The materials being used? Is the screw lubricated or treated with a locking patch? RPM setting of the power tool is often overlooked. Read more here.

 
R&D REPORT
Researchers Build Circuits from Light
  Researchers Build Circuits from Light

"Smaller, faster, and more efficient" have remained the goals of developing new circuits for the more than four decades since Moore formulated his famous law. The advances have always involved finding better ways to move electrons about. Yet substituting light for electrons would transcend some of the laws-of-physics limitations against which engineers are beginning to collide. Now, for the first time, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have demonstrated the optical alternative, creating "lumped" optical circuit elements and with them the science and engineering discipline of "metatronics." The freedom to change parameters such as the light's orientation will permit circuit configurations impossible to achieve using the conventional approach.

Virtual Desktops Do More with Less
  Virtual Desktops Do More with Less

Virtual desktops have carved out a place on the factory floor by reducing the overhead needed to provide real-time operational intelligence. Traditionally, manufacturers purchase, install, and maintain expensive hardware and software for each desktop. This means extensive maintenance to keep the computers running and the software current. Virtual desktops eliminate this overhead by delivering a full desktop environment with much less hardware and software, using zero clients. These compact interface boxes are linked to desktop servers that hold all operating systems and applications in a single location. This gives better operational control while reducing downtime, energy consumption, and support staff.

Distributed Modular I/O Technology Guide: Five Reasons to Switch to Distributed Modular I/O

"For machine builders there is a great demand to increase the productivity and flexibility of their machines, while maintaining healthy margins. This can be a difficult balancing act between using the most effective technology while working within a shrinking budget. Distributed I/O systems connected to an industrial network allow for I/O data to be spread across the machine and outside of the cabinet, reducing the total component and hardware costs of the system."
