Phoenix Contact Inc. (www.phoenixcon.com) has rolled out the RAD-ISM-...-BD, an integrated radio and I/O module with expandable I/O options. Designed to eliminate cable and conduit for analog and digital signals in industrial environments, the RAD-ISM-...-BD utilizes spread spectrum frequency hopping techniques for a license- and interference-free link between remote devices and the control room. It also features an in-plant range of 600-1,000 ft with no line-of-sight, and requires a 12-30V dc power source.
Sensor deployment in automated factories should be done slowly and conservatively, otherwise engineers may face the loss of hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, an Internet of Things expert will tell attendees at the upcoming Design & Manufacturing Show in Minneapolis.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
