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 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.
