Foxboro PAC hardware combines high I/O density
with cost-effective redundancy options. The control unit and I/O system form
the basis of a complete distributed control and recording environment capable
of continuous analog, logic and sequential control. It is also has secure data
recording at point of measurement.
The Foxboro PAC System is useful for
delivering control, alarm management, historian, web reporting and batch
functionality for applications in the food & beverage, glass, metals,
minerals, mining, life sciences, plastics, water and wastewater and other
industries. ArchestrA integration is effected in three areas: in the IDE, for
control system configuration; with device integration for runtime control
system data communications; and with the Wonderware Application Server for
runtime logic and visualization.
Key capabilities of the PAC reported by Invensys include:
Up to 3,000 I/O
Integration with the InFusion ECS
swap any I/O card or single processor
across processor, communications, power and I/O
(CPU speed) and I/O density improvements from previous offering
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
