The newest model in Sensoray's 2600 series, the 2652, uses a single category-5 patch cable, connected to a 2601 communication module, to monitor and control up to eight solid state relays. Each of the relay sockets can have either an ac in, ac out, dc in, or dc out relay. The module uses a software debounce filter on each input relay to cut down on electromechanical switch bounce errors. The client can control the relay while configured as an output, or the relay can run as a PWM output with a rate and duty cycle specified by the client. There are five independent interlock circuits for letting external circuitry such as an emergency stop switch to de-energize an output relay.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.

Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
