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
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
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.
