One Stop Systems released its newest CompactPCI system monitoring and control board, 6U SYSMON II. The 6U SYSMON II can monitor vital system functions including fan speed, temperature, power supply functionality and power voltage, as well as other miscellaneous options. The board comes with eight input/outputs for fan speed, eight I/Os for temperature, eight I/Os for power supply, four I/Os for power voltage and eight I/Os for miscellaneous functions including intuition alarms, light sensors, unique computer identification and LED control.
The card features an alarm response for instances where temperature exceeds a particular range, fans speeds are outside a particular range, power voltage is outside a particular range or a power supply fails. The card also features monitoring LEDs to indicate Major, Minor and Critical malfunctions within the monitored equipment as well as a speaker alarm with on/off functionality. Software is available to set parameters of monitoring systems and is hosted on a remote PC where alarms can be directed, via e-mail or other trigger responses.
The 6U SYSMON II is applicable to telecom, datacom, ISP and wireless server applications, as well as other industries that require system monitoring. List price for the 6U SYSMON II is $1,280 but varies by bundle specifics such as the addition of temperature sensors.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
