Quick reaction times improve both safety and productivity
What do safety functions in automation have in common with airbags? The reaction time. Airbags trigger within just under 50 milliseconds – at a speed of 200 km/h, this is too slow because the car will cover a number of meters in this time. Drivers should therefore drive much more slowly. When it comes to the reaction times of safety functions in automation, the situation is usually similar. At least up until now. After all, our new ctrlX SAFETY technology reacts up to ten times faster.
Are you still programming, or are you already mixing and matching?
How long does it take to set up a spirit level, a digital purse or a video editing station on a smartphone? In most cases, the answer is: There’s an app for that. And they are often just a few taps away. So why is it still so complex and cumbersome to program motion controls in mechanical engineering? In our opinion, there is no reason for that. And we’ve got proof: our simple ctrlX MOTION solution.
Powerful drives for the future
The road from the first PCs without a hard drive to today’s connected, mobile device platforms was a long one. The performance of central components such as processors and RAM had to be improved significantly and they had to be made more and more compact and energy-efficient. At the same time, the software became decoupled from the hardware and users could suddenly use a full range of new functions.
