HMS's 1 SI CANopen module for the SIMATIC ET200S I/O system has
integration of the CAN 2.0A protocol. In addition to the standard CANopen
protocol, the HMS 1 SI CANopen
module can also be used for transmission/ reception of any CAN 2.0A frame
regardless of the overlaying
CAN application protocol. Typical applications include all kinds of machines
and automation systems where CAN or CANopen enabled devices are used in
combination with Siemens PLCs.
The HMS 1 SI CANopen module fits mechanically into the standard ET200S
system rack and can be used in combination with all other modules of the ET200S
family. The module can be engineered with STEP7, allowing easy configuration
and diagnostics. STEP7 also allows upgrading already existing 1 SI CANopen boards
with this new functionality. Using the standard PROFIBUS or PROFINET bus
coupler of the ET200S, the 1 SI CANopen module can be used along with Siemens
automation and control systems.
HMS supports users of its 1 SI CANopen module with new PLC function
blocks which are used to create and analyze CAN 2.0A frames directly in the PLC
program. Based on these function blocks, PLC programmers can easily implement
customer specific CAN application protocols or specific CAN application
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
