is an addressing device for AS-Interface specification 3.0.
programming tool can
be used to program and test the functionality of AS-Interface slaves, provide
permanent data exchange with AS-Interface slaves, support data exchange with
slaves in extended addressing mode,
and indicate the safety code for AS-Interface
battery-powered handheld programmers provide short
circuit and overload protection of the slave connection. They are IP20
protected and rated for use in temperatures ranging from 0 to 40C (32 to 104F).
The AS-Interface 3.0
Handheld is an enhancement to the company's version 2.1 programmer, and has
these new features:
for specification 3.0 profiles, with the ability to set outputs on
4in/4out modules with extended addressing
"power-on" time to support the
programming of safe output modules
to read the safety sequence from safety input modules
addressing, where the unit stores previously programmed addresses for
quick programming of an entire network, while minimizing the chance of a
address programming, where arrow keys and a program button are the sole
requirements to set the module address
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
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.
