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.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
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
