Maxim Integrated and Trinamic have reported to exhibit the future of intelligent digital production solutions at Smart Production Solutions (SPS 2021) from November 23-25, 2021 in Nuremberg, Germany.
Attendees visiting the Maxim/Trinamic booth 5.128, as well as the adjacent Analog Devices booth 5.129, can discover advances to scale and accelerate the future of sustainable and smart manufacturing systems with intelligent devices at the edge of the factory floor.
A comprehensive overview of all demonstrations is available on a dedicated SPS event page.
Highlights of the combined Maxim Integrated/Trinamic demo program at stand 5.128 include the following:
Open-Source Reference Design for End-of-Arm Tooling Applications
Developers seeking greater precision and efficiency in motion control for industrial robotic end-of-arm tooling (EoAT) applications can see the Trinamic TMCM-1617-GRIP-REF open-source hardware reference design featuring a brushless DC servo driver.
Speed Up Motor Drive Commissioning with Auto-Tuning
Designers can select precise and efficient parameters for any motor control application through a user interface using the TMCM-1617 single axis servo driver. As part of the Trinamic Motion Control Language – Integrated Development Environment (TMCL-IDE), visitors will input new parameters to the motor drive application and witness enhanced performance in real-time with the auto-tuning tool.
Engineer’s Swiss Army Knife Running on MicroPython
Motor drive modules in the field or on the factory floor can be accessed with a simple Python script using the Trinamic TMCM-0960-MotionPy to provide clear insight into system communications regardless of the interface or bus system. Built to accelerate application prototyping with MicroPython, developers will see a demonstration that rapidly automates testing and analysis.
Home Bus for Building Automation Applications:
Maxim Integrated’s Home Bus solution is an open protocol data and power network that uses a single line to cross the long distances prevalent in large-scale building automation applications. The demonstration pairs remote control powered directly from the Home Bus with innovative motor control technology from Trinamic.
Boosted Productivity with Intelligent IO-Link Actuators
Rapidly changing consumer demands compel producers to require flexibility in their automation equipment to reconfigure factories quickly. Developers can modify their lines on the fly and see the powerful two-way communication technology offered by IO-Link.
Robust Connectivity with Fault-protected CAN Transceivers
Maxim Integrated offers a built-in fault detection mechanism with the MAX33012E CAN transceiver that will show users how to identify the root cause quickly, get back to full production in less time and learn how to offer higher CAN reliability with ±65V fault protection, ±45kV ESD HBM protection.
Bitflip Detection and Correction Using Error Correcting Code on the MAX32670
The MAX32670 is a highly reliable, ultra-low-power microcontroller powered by an Arm® Cortex-M4 processor with a floating-point unit for industrial and IoT applications.
Visitors at the show can watch error-correcting code detect and correct bit flips caused by alpha particles and learn how to improve equipment reliability and achieve higher productivity by using intelligence at the edge to avoid disruptions.
