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.

There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
