They wanted to see the "Futurama," a miniaturized replica of a typical 21st century American city that featured moving sidewalks, computer-guided cars zipping along congestion-free highways and resort hotels beneath the sea.
Able to convert up to 400 VAC or 5 A signals to 0 VDC to 5 VDC signals for data acquisition cards, Advantech's ADAM-3112 AC voltage to DC voltage module signal conditioning module and the ADAM-3114 AC current to DC voltage module reduces the harmful effects of group loops, field noise, and electrical interference while providing high voltage isolation.
After months of uncertainty about Steve Jobs's health, the Apple Inc. chief executive appears on track to return from medical leave this month, said people familiar with Apple.
The most comprehensive modeling yet carried out on the likelihood of how much hotter the Earth's climate will get in this century shows that without rapid and massive action, the problem will be about twice as severe as previously estimated six years ago - and could be even worse than that.
The battery-free, on-shaft TE-Power RING by Micropelt GmbH provides a wireless condition monitoring system for parts that wear during operation. Run by frictional heat, the device can measure temperature and pressure and record vibration signals to allow determinations to be made about the condition of parts for maintenance or replacement.
You could call electric car company Coda Automotive the anti-Tesla. The company, formed by fleet vehicle provider Miles Electric, on Wednesday unveiled the Coda, a plain-looking electric car that's designed for everyday use.
Intended to detect and alarm on human activity which may threaten the availability of your network-critical physical infrastructure, the NetBotz family of Security and Environmental Monitoring products from APC by Schneider Electric are power-over-Ethernet-capable network-accessible appliances.
