Cover story
Industrial Robots: Fast, Nimble at 30
In the 30 years since their invention, SCARA robots and the well-known heavy welding and painting robots are still producing. PC-based technologies, communications like FireWire and Ethernet, and sophisticated components give designers new options for developing solutions. The article includes exclusive sidebar on related signal-conditioner product and links to four other recent robotics items.

Medium-Voltage Motors Ease Limits on Current Capacity and Power
AC induction motors and synchronous motors operating at medium voltage widen the load capacity of processing plants, especially larger facilities located far from electric power sources. (Online extra to come.)
