MOTION CONTROL: AutomationDirect now offers Cat5e Ethernet patch cables in eight colors and three foot to 50 foot lengths. The straight and crossover patch cables support up to 1000 Mbps, and are designed to reduce the effects of electromagnetic interference by incorporating a single metal foil shield which wraps around the entire set of four twisted shielded pairs. The robust RJ45 connectors are also shielded against electrical interference. Our 350 MHz cables exceed all Cat5e TIA/EIA standards, and drastically reduce both impedance and structural return loss (SRL) when compared to standard 100 MHz cables. With prices starting at $5.00, these cables help create solid, reliable Ethernet networks with any application.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration. In honor of our country and its legacy of engineering innovation -- in all of its forms -- we are taking you on an alphabetical tour through all 50 states to showcase interesting engineering breakthroughs and historically significant events.
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.
