Eaton Opens New Global Innovation Center to Drive Development of Energy-Efficient Power Systems

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.

Conveyor Line Fitted with SmartWire-DT for Clinker Transport

The conveyor system for transporting cement clinker at the Lägerdorf production plant of Holcim (Deutschland) AG uses SmartWire-DT, Eaton's innovative connection and communication technology.

FAULHABER GROUP

Faulhaber stepper motors regulate adaptive soldering and welding wire feed

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.

HMS Industrial Networks AB

Remote management makes Eaton’s UPS systems truly uninterruptible

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.

NORD Drivesystems

SK 200E now up to 22kW

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has extended its SK 200E family of decentralized drive solutions with a new size 4 inverter with a rated power output from 11 to 22 kW.

MAPLESOFT

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory begins widespread adoption of Maplesoft technology MapleSim and Maple to enhance modeling and simulation in space exploration projects Waterloo, Canada, xx January 2012:

Maplesoft today announced a major adoption of its products by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). JPL is implementing Maple, MapleSim, and MapleNet in its various projects. Whether creating America's first satellite, Explorer 1, sending the first robotic craft to the moon, or exploring the edges of the solar system, JPL has been at the forefront of pushing the limits of exploration.

NORD Drivesystems

Highest efficiency through application-specific drive configuration: Optimizing drive solutions, tapping power reserves

Despite the introduction of energy efficiency classes IE2, IE3 etc. and the subsequent information that is now available, finding the most resource-efficient drive solution is not easy. A simple catalog based choice will often miss out on potential savings and therefore motors should be carefully selected according to the actual load profile of the application. To avoid inefficient drive specifications, NORD Drivesystems concentrates on power reserves which are derived from various sources. Firstly, the power a motor can generate in compliance with its temperature class is higher than the rated output as given in the catalog and on the motor type plate. Secondly, performance classes rise gradually; for a 3.7 kW output, for instance, it takes a 4 kW motor. Many customers will even select the next motor in size. This kind of “bigger is better” approach is anything but efficient.
