With embedded Ethernet and web-server capability, iSeries
controllers connect directly to an Ethernet network with a standard RJ-45
connector to send and receive data in standard TCP/IP packets and serve up a web
page. The device serves a web page over an Ethernet LAN or over the Internet so
engineers can monitor and control the process through a web browser from
anywhere in the facility or in the world.
"In fact, iSeries devices are full stand-alone Internet appliances
that do more than just bridge between serial and Ethernet," explains Newport
Electronics General Manager Steve Hollander. "It's actually one of the world's
smallest web servers, so it works without a computer functioning as a proxy
server and master-to-slave instruments connected though serial communications."
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
