MEN Micro Inc.'s DC2 is a rugged panel display that combines
capacitive touch technology for human interface with a fanless,
DC2 is equipped with an Intel Atom
1.3 GHz XL Z520PT processor, 1 Gbyte of DDR2 SDRAM and a 2 Gbyte microSD card
and offers high data throughput and memory capacities. DC2 can also accommodate
additional Intel processor configurations.
is useful in transportation, mobile and industrial automation applications, the
panel-mounted DC2 features a 10.4 inch 4:3 LCD TFT display with a 1024 x 768
resolution as standard, with larger screen sizes up to 19 inches as well as
higher resolutions and aspect ratios available. Specific applications include
train driver cabins, buses and agricultural machines as well as information panels within a vehicle or at a
Standard I/O is comprised of two
Fast Ethernet and two USB ports as well as four binary inputs via the 10-pin
power supply connector. The Ethernet interfaces have switch functionality to
provide Ethernet connection to subsequent intelligent displays. A temperature
sensor monitors and controls the display.
The unit's control electronics,
attached directly to the back of the display, allow for the customized screen
sizes, alternative processors and various aspect ratios. The DC2
enables more configuration options including the use of M12 connectors as well
as connecting additional interfaces, a GPS adapter or HD audio. A MiniPCI
Express card slot with an external antenna can be used for wireless functions,
such as WLAN, WIFI, GSM/GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HDSPA and LTE.
The DC2 is equipped with a 9 to 36V
wide-range power supply and operates from -40 to +70C as well as at +85C for up
to 10 minutes according to temperature class Tx. All components are soldered to
withstand shock and vibration and are prepared for conformal coating. The panel
computer is prepared for the e1 automotive certification and also corresponds
to railway standard EN50155 with an additional power supply unit.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
