Safer for the field tech to install.. rather, simpler, night be more to the point.

Thanks for your comment, bobjengr. I've written a few stories about safety and perhaps you've seen those, too. It is a very important issue, as your personal experience shows. i'm happy to know that this device will be worthwhile for machine builders.

ROCKWELL AND MACHINE BUILDERS

Excellent Post Elizabeth.  I design and build work cells to automate manufacturing processes.  This device will definitely fit into the work I do and allow troubleshooting to boot.  As you know, OSHA has a lockout/tagout requirement for all electrical boxes supplying voltage to machinery and equipment.  The Rockwell device will add an additional safety feature to automated equipment and allow for a computer interface.  It definitely complements the overall design.   Again, great post.

Elizabeth, safety is always a concern.  It is useful to make it easier to implement.  This looks like a good device.

If we are going to be creating a network that serves us, one of its most critical nodes will need to be ourselves. This is where wearable technology comes into play.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
