control panel series was expanded by two new panels with a 5.7 inch touch
display. The ETV 0551 is equipped with an analog resistive TFT color touch
screen (IP 54). The ETV 0552, which is equipped with a glass touch screen and
frontal IP65 protection against dust and water, is even more robust. Because
there is no offset edge between the glass touch screen and the frame, the panel
can be easily cleaned. The ETV 0552 is useful for use in raw industrial
environments as well as in food processing, packaging and medical technology.
The fanless control panels are based on the EDGE-Technology.
Both ETVs are equipped with 1-Gbyte Flash and 64-Mbyte DDR RAM. For remnant
data, 512 kbytes of memory is provided. A micro SD memory card is used as the
storage medium for the operating system, the application and user-specific
data. Eight digital in- and outputs are already "on board".
The numerous standard interfaces such as VARAN bus, CAN bus,
Ethernet, USB and USB Type Mini, are located on the bottom and allow the simple
integration of the ETV 0551 and 0552 into the machine structure. All interfaces
can be freely programmed by the application. With LASAL, a universal and fully
integrated engineering tool for programming and visualizing functions is provided.
The integration idea from Sigmatek combines PLC, HMI, Motion Control and Safety
in an integrated platform.

The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
