This new software allows Windows-based PCs to directly access all Delta RMC70- and RMC100-Series motion controllers, allowing the ability to read and write registers, and the ability to read bits and issue commands, all over a serial port or Ethernet access. It has a number of sample programs and multi-language support. It works well with data acquisition and testing applications, offering Virtual Instrument components for National Instruments' LabVIEW, a common product used with RMC motion controllers in NDT and cyclical testing applications. The software offers several interfaces to work with languages such as Visual C#, Visual Basic .NET, Visual J#, Visual C++, Visual Basic 5.0/6.0, Visual Basic for Applications and LabVIEW.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
