This scalable controller is affordable, priced at around $500, and offers a direct connection to the entire bus terminal I/O system of more than 180 terminal designs. The controllers come with an illuminated display with two 16-character lines, and a joystick switch for diagnostic information or user interaction. The PLC project can write to the BX9000's display and read inputs from the joystick. It has a program memory and data memory with 256 kbytes in each. It works with ModbusTCP, ADS/TCP, ADS/UDP, BootP, DHCP, SNTP and SMTP protocols. It also has a real-time clock for decentralized applications. It also has an RS232 and an RS232/RS485 serial interface for programming and serial device connection. The integrated Smart System Bus, a CANopen-based device, accommodates displays, modems, drives or other peripherals. It uses TwinCAT automation software for parameterization and programming according to the IEC 61131-3 standard.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
