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.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
There is a new cooperation between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to explore the potential alignment of their two architecture efforts: the Reference Architecture Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA).
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
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.
