ELECTRONICS: Athena Controls Inc.’s new line of FoundationTM Series Customizable Modular Control Products offer machine designers virtually limitless heat and/or cool control possibilities in a package small enough to fit in the palm of the hand. From simple, cost-effective, multi-loop PID control to more complex custom “state machine” control, Foundation’s compact, basic control board contains a large Flash code and RAM memory for added software capabilities, and the ability to add plug-in boards for expanded communication, I/O and display options to suit specific applications. With FoundationTM Series Products, machine designers can buy and pay for as little heat and/or cool control that they need with the ability to add more capability as their application needs change and grow.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
