Combinations of +3.3 V, +5 V, &plusmn;12 V, &plusmn;15 V, and &plusmn;24 V are available. It is approved by TUV and UL to IEC/EN 60601-1 3<sup>rd</sup> edition, ANSI/AAMI ES 60601-1:2005 for EMC and immunity performance, and CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60601-1:08 medical standards. It features a maximum ground-leakage current of 100 &micro;A, at 240 V ac and 60 Hz. No-load power consumption is typically 3W.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/batteriespower-supplies/power-adapter-meets-medical-safety-standards" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/batteriespower-supplies/power-adapter-meets-medical-safety-standards#comments Products Batteries/Power Supplies Fri, 01 May 2015 18:18:00 +0000 48531 at http://machinedesign.com A Closer Look at Motors for Motion http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/closer-look-motors-motion <div class="field-deck"> Several differentiating factors influence the choice of motor for robotics, medical, packaging, and other motion-control applications. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">An overview on the different types of motors used in robotics, medical, packing, and other motion-control industries.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/closer-look-motors-motion" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/closer-look-motors-motion#comments Products Medical Packaging Robotics Motion Control Motors/Drives Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:09:00 +0000 48201 at http://machinedesign.com Air-Bearing Positioners Improve Movement Precision http://machinedesign.com/bearings/air-bearing-positioners-improve-movement-precision <div class="node-body article-body"><p>In addition to piezoelectric nano-positioning stages and micro-positioning systems, Physik Instrumente (PI) is introducing a new air-bearing stage. The latter comes with motorized linear and XY stages, rotary tables and stages, spindles, non-motorized components, and machining systems. The air-bearing positioners float on air to provide completely frictionless motion, resulting in negligible hysteresis or reversal error, straightness, flatness, and velocity stability.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/bearings/air-bearing-positioners-improve-movement-precision" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/bearings/air-bearing-positioners-improve-movement-precision#comments Products Bearings Mon, 06 Apr 2015 13:45:00 +0000 47911 at http://machinedesign.com Speed-Enhanced Linear Actuators Offer Precision Positioning http://machinedesign.com/linear-motion/speed-enhanced-linear-actuators-offer-precision-positioning <div class="node-body article-body"><p>New compact linear actuators developed by Oriental Motor come with a built-in controller driver or pulse input driver. &nbsp;The DRLII devices, available with or without a guide, combine with 24-V dc microstepping drivers for precise positioning. A range of sizes are offered with new maximum speed levels and lead screw pitches for ground and rolled ball screw types. A hollow rotor, which contains a ball screw, also rotates the ball screw nut. Setting up an anti-spin mechanism on the tip of the ball screw linearly actuates the ball screw shaft.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/linear-motion/speed-enhanced-linear-actuators-offer-precision-positioning" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/linear-motion/speed-enhanced-linear-actuators-offer-precision-positioning#comments Products Linear Motion Mon, 06 Apr 2015 13:40:00 +0000 47901 at http://machinedesign.com Latest Sherlock Software Upgrade Enriches PCB-Design Analysis http://machinedesign.com/fea-and-simulation/latest-sherlock-software-upgrade-enriches-pcb-design-analysis <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Sherlock Automated Design Analysis 4.0 software now includes Substrate Trace Modeling, Abaqus, and ANSYS Workbench for analyzing printed-circuit-board (PCB) designs and other complex components.
