MC Electro Federation Canada Held 12th Annual Future Forum 1 400x275

Electro-Federation Canada held their 12th Annual Future Forum with the theme ‘Innovation During Disruptive Times: Finding the Crossroads Between Talent and Technology’ today. This popular electrical industry event was held virtually, and attracted a vast section of their membership to listen to a dynamic set of speakers and thought leaders who provided insight into the heartbeat of innovation, a refresh on technology and strategies to help understand the value of collaborative thinking to better serve customers. The annual Marketing Excellence Awards were also presented, and the winners will soon be posted here.

EFC’s Marketing Awards program recognizes organizations that demonstrate marketing excellence and innovation within the Canadian electrical manufacturing and distribution industry. All entries are always reviewed and selected by an external panel of judges with expertise in each category, adding to the credibility of the awards.

Hence, it was with great honour that Rittal Limited, Canada world leading producer of electrical enclosures, climate control, power distribution & IT Infrastructure solutions and software, accepted a prestigious Electro-Federation Canada Marketing Excellence Award for the fifth year. This year’s award was for Event/Trade Show for the EPLAN-Rittal global virtual fair that was held in the first quarter of 2022. What’s more, Rittal also won an honorable mention for the Integrated Marketing Award category for the Four Seasons Climate Control campaign that highlights Rittal’s Blue e+ energy-saving climate control solutions throughout the year.

Said André Bousette, President, Rittal Limited, Canada,

“Rittal Limited is honored that we have been recognized by Electro Federation Canada yet again. I am pleased that won for the Best Event/Trade Show Award, for our Rittal-EPLAN Virtual Fair, as our Marketing team came up with the idea of introducing a special Canadian session along with our customer, RidgeTech Automation, that attracted our Canadian audience to this global event. The honorable mention for our unique Four Seasons Climate Control Integrated Marketing Campaign was also appreciated, as this is the first year that we have replaced our annual Summer Promo with this year-long campaign to highlight the importance of our enclosure climate solutions all year round.”

Added Sandra Abuwalla, Marketing Lead, Rittal Limited, Canada,

“Electro Federation Canada is the voice of the electrical industry in Canada, so winning this award will certainly enhance our brand awareness in the industry. We will ensure that we cascade this award in all our channels and celebrate this great honour with the team. We will not rest on our laurels but it’s on to the next unique campaign to get the word out there that Rittal means business in the Canadian electrical industry!”

MC What to Consider When Choosing a New Motion Control Solution 1 400x275

When it’s time to consider a new motion control solution for your application, rule #1 is “Solve the problem, then worry about the design.”

This is easier said than done, but not if you apply a disciplined, time-tested framework. First, you must clearly understand the problem and the local environment. Failure to do so often results in a suboptimal motion control solution or complete failure.

Secondly, the designer should evaluate the application in light of proven existing motion control solutions. The engineer must also take stock of their skills and the expertise of the team in order to effectively choose the right options and to accurately anticipate development time and resources.

Before choosing any motion control products, the design engineer needs a set of principles to guide his or her selection. Long term experience and common sense has taught us seven important, but often overlooked, principles. 

These key learning have been encapsulated in a simple notion known as the SHAIRED paradigm:

  • •Simplicity of design to reduce problem-causing complexity and cost
  • Homework; calculate the required torque, inertia, duty cycle, etc.
  • Analysis of the application and alternatives must be thorough
  • Integration of the system into existing factory automation
  • Redundancy built in to a system to exceed performance expectations and deal with unexpected changed in load and operating parameters
  • Economical solution for the short and long term.
  • Development time must be accurately estimated

Using the above guidelines during motion control system design, evaluation of alternatives, and final product selection will help increase the odds of application success.

MC Omrons New Integrated Controller Capable of Controlling Robots and Entire Automation Systems 1 400x275

Omron has recently introduced its most full-featured machine automation controller to date. Offering control of multiple robots, the choice of 16, 32, or 64 controlled motion axes, and SQL connectivity. It is the ideal control solution for complete robotic cells, high-speed motion systems, material handling and multi-robot systems.

The Robotics Integrated Platform is the next revolutionary step in the SYSMAC ecosystem that seamlessly integrates the full Omron Fixed Robotics product line. Their one controller approach integrates robot control, in addition to sequence and motion control, to a single controller. This enables synchronized control of robots as well as other devices and results in higher performance compared to typical network based configurations. It also enables users to collect information on devices aligned to a common timeline which not only improves overall system response times and accuracy but also greatly aids in troubleshooting activities.
