Each model offers dual output control for monitoring and adjusting temperature and parameters such as flow, pressure and levels. The built-in auto tuning feature of the SOLO controllers tests the system and sets the best possible parameter for that system.
Each SOLO controller supports thirteen types of temperature inputs and five types of analog inputs. Control configurations for the SOLO controllers include ON/OFF, Ramp/Soak, PID and Manual operation and are equipped with a dual four-digit, seven-segment display.
With free software from the Automation Direct website, users can monitor up to eight controllers using Modbus RTU or ASCII protocols, and can monitor historical data and save it to a .txt file. The price of these controllers varies, but half of the 22 models are available for under $100.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
