Opal-MM-1616-XT offers 16 unidirectional optoisolated inputs
that can accept dc voltages up to 30V dc. Inputs feature channel to channel and
input to output isolation of 500V dc or ac. The inputs also feature a
programmable edge detection circuit (change of state detection circuit) that
can generate interrupts on any change on any input.
also provides 16 Form C SPDT relay outputs rated at 30V dc at 2A capacity, or
125V ac at 0.1A. Each relay has two sets of normally open, common, and normally
closed contacts wired in parallel for greater reliability and lifetime.
temperature operation of -40 to +85C is tested and guaranteed. Optional 0-ohm
resistors may be installed instead of the address jumpers for additional
ruggedness. Optional latching connectors may be installed for both inputs and
outputs to further improve reliability.
Driver works with Windows XP, CE, Linux, QNX and DOS. Application examples are
included for each function and OS to provide a quick starting point for
The FDA has just released draft guidelines for using 3D printing in the design, development, and manufacture of regulated medical products. Although the recommendations are non-binding, they do set some much-needed parameters.
We're talking a look at 10 of the coolest technologies being developed by the US military today. In addition to saving lives on the battlefield, don't be surprised if you see some of these in your daily life some time in the near future.
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.
