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.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
