The application of safety brakes in wind turbine pitch drives requires extremely conscientious dimensioning and precise knowledge of braking torque tolerances. If these prerequisites are fulfilled, high-quality brakes will work without requiring any maintenance across their entire service lifetime.
Improved visibility, intrusion detection up to 5 mm from the edge, response time as little as 7 ms, automatic cycle starts, IP67 protection, a heavy duty version and still the same market-leading simplicity of installation, with the possibility of placing curtain units edge-to-edge: the new SL-V series is the most complete solution on the market.

Have you ever sat at a desk sometime in the small hours of the morning, bent over a lukewarm cup of coffee, trying to make sense of a block diagram along with a notebook full of mathematical equations derived weeks ago, needing to make final changes to a simulation model due at 9 a.m.? Regardless of whether you work in automotive engineering, biomechanical systems, spacecraft mechanisms, mechatronic multi-domain systems, or micro-robotics, model-based development promises to yield higher quality designs in less time.

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation (NYSE:ETN) joined today with its partners at Czech Invest and the Czech Technical University in Prague (CVUT) to announce the opening in Prague of Eaton’s newest global Innovation Center. The new facility at Roztoky Science & Technology Center will be Eaton's first global innovation center in Europe and fifth in the company's global network of advanced innovation centers, also located in the United States, India and China.
Whether soldering, induction brazing or laser welding the weld filler metal is often delivered by wire. The system must always deliver a reproducible length of filler metal to the correct destination, but without jolting or bending the wire in the process. A new automatic wire feeder driven by a Faulhaber controlled micromotor is now providing a reliable solution to this problem.
Businesses such as data centers, banks, hospitals and supermarkets need constant access to power. By implementing an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), these businesses make sure that they always have an immediate back-up if the main power should fail. But how do you make sure that the back-up always is operational without physically visiting it every day? Eaton has found a way by using the Netbiter remote management solution from HMS Industrial Networks. It enables Eaton to access to real-time data about each UPS, to offer a faster service and to reduce travelling.
