The MuxiPort intelligent serial data multiplexer is capable of multiplexing the RS-232 port on an Allen Bradley PLC into two separate user ports. MuxiPorts can also be cascaded to provide two additional user ports or low cost-limited networking capability. User devices connected to MuxiPort can communicate with the PLC via either a DF1 or a generic ASCII protocol. Node addresses for the user device communicating with the PLC are generated by a point-to-point DF1 protocol. All incoming messages and outgoing messages are triple buffered. Data sheet includes product description, information on the key features and operation requirements.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
