These steel, 19-inch rack-mount power distribution unit packages range from $49 to $129 each, but are made for demanding power distribution needs of telecom, instrumentation and music/audio systems. They come in 8-, 10-, or 12-socket configurations, and have 2- and 4-pole EMI noise filtering and the highest power-line surge protection. They work via a lighted on/off switch and resettable circuit breaker. NEMA sockets are mounted horizontally so they don't block adjacent sockets in wall-plug-style adapters. They are rated for 15- and 20-A capacities. All models offer free shipping, custom label/configuration for OEM applications, and stock delivery for standard items, with two to four weeks for customized models.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
