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
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
