HP Fiber to RS232 Converters
convert RS-232 Serial Communication Interface to HP
Versatile Link Plastic Core Cable providing full
galvanic isolation (no metallic connection) between connected devices. This allows the interference-free fiber
optical transfer of data to be utilized by the device having an RS-232
interface. The converter has a data transfer rate up to 120 Kbps. Model 4137EU utilizes an RJ45 connector and
Model 4139EU has a DB9 connector for RS232 connection.
The RS-232 allows data
transmission that is not susceptible to electrostatic or electromagnetic fields
and the ports of the connected terminals are protected from damage by potential
differences (ground variations). The converter is useful for international
lottery or casino type network applications.
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
