STORM(reg) AXS(TM) keypad is abuse- and vandal-resistant and provides controlled access and protection to industrial equipment via a secure PIN entry system. The 3X4 sealed keypad features a 50-PIN security capacity, a normally open/normally closed relay output, and can be installed on any flat panel or control surface. With PIN access, the relay can deliver control over the start-up mechanisms of machine tools, molding presses, fork lifts, and other industrial and commercial products.

At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
