Red Lion Controls Inc.'s PAX2A Dual Line
Display Meter can display input, total, minimum, maximum or setpoints on a
0.7-inch-high, six-digit main LCD display. This main display offers three
programmable, easy-to-read colors: red, orange and green. Color change can be
tied to the setpoints, providing the operator with a visual display of changing
conditions in the application - with updates up to 160 times per sec. The panel
meter also features a second display line - with a 0.35-inch-high, nine-digit
green LCD display that can also be programmed for any of the above parameters
and accommodates totalizing applications that easily exceed a normal six-digit
display. A three-digit programmable custom unit indicator is also available.
dual line display meter provides universal functionality, including universal
input. The same meter accepts dc current, dc voltage, process signal, and
thermocouple and RTD temperature sensor inputs. PAX2A also supports universal
power input - from 50 to 25 V ac or 21.6 to 250V dc. Built-in Modbus
communications in addition to field installable option cards: RS232, RS485,
DeviceNet and Profibus allow communications across a multitude of protocols.

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
