Weidmuller's Wave TTA (Transmitter/Trip Amplifier) is a
single channel, DIN-rail mounted, universal input signal isolator, converter,
transmitter, linearizer and trip-amplifier. It is extremely accurate and
suitable for a wide range of process applications. In a single electronics package, supplied
with free configuration software. It takes the complexity out of the
potentially demanding issues regarding input/output scalability. TTA's
feature-set supports all common temperature sensors, accepts frequency and dc
inputs, and can be user-customized allowing for custom linearization. Featuring both analog and relay outputs, with
operating temperatures from -40 and 158F, and universal ac/dc powering means
the Wave TTA can be installed almost anywhere. TTA functionality simplifies the
designers job by reducing the variety of conditioning devices needed for a
project, and reduces installation costs because it does not need to be powered
from a dc power supply. Easily accessible testing points help simplify and
reduce commissioning time/cost by allowing input/output signal current testing
without cable removal. For the plant engineer, one Wave TTA will cover many
conditioning needs, so inventory is minimized. In the event of an intelligent
transmitter/actuator failure, this one device allows the engineer to use a
standard field device which can be easily replaced rather than specially
reconfiguring the transmitter/actuator.
Parallax Inc. is known for developing the Basic Stamp microcontroller development board and educational accessory kits. In addition to developing a user-friendly educational platform to learn about 8-bit microcontrollers and software programming, it created a multicore 32-bit chip called the Propeller.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
