Inc.'s eI/O family of Ethernet digital
I/O solutions include five
different I/O models with a choice of optically isolated inputs, Reed relay
outputs and Form C relay outputs. All eI/O modules are available in Power over
Ethernet (PoE 802.3af) versions to connect to existing PoE networks with power
and data provided on one cable, or users can choose dc powered models with
9-30V dc input range. Ready for DIN rail mounting, eI/O modules include
a removable plastic clip that snaps onto 35mm DIN rail. The clip can also be
attached to any flat surface such as a wall or under a counter.
Communication with eI/O modules can be done by using
Modbus TCP protocol or Sealevel SeaMAX software. The SeaMAX software suite
supports the eI/O family and is designed to work with third party applications
via the SeaMAX API. Sealevel's SeaMAX software drivers and utilities
use Microsoft Windows operating systems. Standard operating temperature range
of eI/O modules is 0 to 70C.
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.
