DIOCOM bus coupling for compact and flexible field bus modules makes it possible to connect a virtually unlimited number of actuators and sensors to different field buses, such as CAN, Interbus-S, Profibus, or SERCOS-Interface. If necessary, up to 11 additional modules with eight I/O channels each can be connected to the basic module with eight I/O channels on a 35-mm rail. After the developer has built a system with the 60-mm-wide standard modules, and tested it, the manufacturer can combine the individual modules.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
