Power and design at National Manufacturing Week conference

National Manufacturing Week incorporates the Industrial Automation Show and related conference sessions of interest to component-minded people interested in power and design.


National Manufacturing Week incorporates the Industrial Automation Show and related conference sessions of interest to component-minded people interested in power and design. Most of the 322 conference sessions at NMW 2005 will be held 8 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. on the show’s four days to help most visitors go to conference sessions in the morning and visit the show floor afterward.

Sessions include…

  • Design for No-Assembly: Applications and Design Methods;

  • New High Speed Fuse Size 5 for Protecting High Current Rectifiers;

  • Protective Devices Maintenance as it Applies to the Arc/Flash Hazard; and

  • Sizing and Selection of Generators for Backup Power.

Also, I’m moderating two conference sessions. These are:

  • Ethernet in the Manufacturing Enterprise ” to be held at 8:30 to 9:20 a.m. on March 7, and will include Mike Bryant, executive director of the Profibus Trade Organization , Katherine Voss, executive director of the Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA), and Markus Sandhoefner, of B&R Industrial Automation USA, representing Ethernet Powerlink Standardization Group (EPSG).

  • Position Sensing ” to be held at 8:30 to 9:20 a.m. on March 8, providing “feedback” on what the latest position-sensing technologies have to offer, including application information from automation system integrators: Scott Shaw, president, Automated Control Systems Inc .; Ken Brey, technical director, DMC Inc. ; and Sam Hammond, chief engineer, Innoventor Inc .
