Pepperl+Fuchs' VisuNet RM family of remote monitors for use in hazardous locations is said to eliminate copper and fiber optic KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) interface technology, while leveraging open network-based Visualization over Ethernet (VOE) technology founded on Microsoft standards. VOE technology facilitates operation of up to
TAW Electronics, Inc. introduced WIMA SuperCapacitors with increased capacitance values from 100F to 400F, a rated voltage of 2.5 V DC, and discharge currents up to 50A . Based on the Helmholtz principle of energy storage in the electrochemical double layer of electrolyte systems, these capacitors can take up energy which is comparable to the stored energy of small batteries
National Instruments released its NI cRIO-9072 and cRIO-9074 CompactRIO for rapid deployment of industrial machines at high volume. These CompactRIO systems have an integrated hardware architecture that combines an embedded real-time processor and a reconfigurable FPGA within a single chassis. Engineers can design, prototype and deploy
Texas Instruments Inc. introduced a 16-bit, single-channel, buffered voltage-output digital-to-analog converter with linearity (1 LSB max INL), low noise (24 nV/rtHz), and fast settling time (5.0 uS). Combined with low power consumption (5mW), the DAC8881 is an option for industrial process control, automatic test equipment, data acquisition systems, and communications applications. It operates from a single +2.7V to +5.5V power supply and gives a unipolar output.
