Corp.'s new line of SureCross Performance Wireless I/O
Gateways and Nodes feature
high-power radio frequency (RF) architecture with 1W transmit power in the 900
MHz ISM band. This architecture provides an increased range between devices-up
to six miles-delivering an industrial Wireless solution in all environments,
including remote or difficult-to-access areas.
New models within
this product family include universal analog inputs, providing users with
increased input selection options in a single device. Operators have the
ability to select either 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 10V inputs in the field. Additional
Node and Gateway models provide up to 12 discrete inputs or outputs. The
SureCross Performance family also includes new temperature Node options,
offering up to four factory-calibrated temperature inputs for thermocouples or

Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this year’s Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
