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.
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.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
