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.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
