the release of their new DIN
Rail Mounted Patch Panels. These 4-port panels snap securely unto
any standard 35mm DIN-Rail toprovide a quick and flexible patching
solution for RJ-45 based copper and optical fiber Industrial Ethernet connections.
This allows Ethernet connectivity to be easily mounted wherever DIN Rail is
available, including in distribution cabinets, alongside DIN-Rail Ethernet
switches and with PLCs and other control devices.
Siemon's DIN-Rail patch
panels a feature an angled mounting design for low-profile cable routing. By
angling the outlet orientation, the panel provides ample cable routing space
and secure strain relief in just 2.75 inch (70mm) of mounting depth, without
impeding port access or exceeding performance-critical cable bend-radius
At just 4 inches (130mm)
wide, the 4-port modular panels are side stackable, allowing a simple,
high-density expansion path to address expanding network connectivity needs. These
durable panels are constructed of lightweight, high strength steel with
industrial black powder-coat finish and integrated cable management features.
Compatible with Siemon Z-MAX
Outlets and MAX modules, these panels support a wide array of cabling
connectivity options, including Z-MAX 6A category 6A/class EA systems in both UTP
and shielded configurations, category 6 UTP Z-MAX, shielded and UTP category 5e
MAX as well as LC, SC, ST and MTRJ MAX fiber modules.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
