NSJ series HMI controllers from Omron (http://rbi.ims.ca/4929-503) integrate the company's NS HMI and CJ1 PLC into a single flexible, HMI controller. The units have separate but integrated processors for display and control tasks, so control response is never compromised by heavy graphics demands on the HMI. Display screens range in size from 5.7 to 12.1 inches, and in resolutions from 320 × 240 to 800 × 600. Ethernet, USB, serial programming ports and printer ports are built-in. Networking and I/O expansion options are available.
All NSJ HMI controllers feature a built-in DeviceNet master that reduces I/O wiring to a single cable. Omron's CX-One software tool provides program development for both the display and control functions using function blocks and the company's patented Smart Active Parts libraries.

More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
