Banner Engineering's compact metal housing is rated for Class I,
Division 1* hazardous locations for its intrinsically safe DX99 Wireless Node
product line. A DX99 Node provides power to sensors directly within a hazardous
area, with an integrated battery power supply that produces an intrinsically
safe (IS) power source for the radio transceiver and external third party
sensors. Equipped with its new housing, the DX99 Node is more versatile while
maintaining its single chamber design - placing the battery, wiring terminal
and radio together for easy mounting and connection to sensors.
DX99 Nodes create a secure wireless network with features such
as a built-in Site Survey tool that allows the installer to determine the
quality of the wireless link. DX99 Nodes additionally offer a combination of
input options including Discrete, Analog, Thermocouple and RTD.
DX99 Node radios
transmit and receive wireless data up to 3 miles - 150mw with 2dBi antenna - while
consuming very little power.
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
