National Instruments' latest CompactRIO controllers include NI-DAQmx and Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN). The controllers are designed to offer deterministic communication and synchronised measurements across standard Ethernet networks to increase performance and help improve productivity and flexibility.
An Eastern European explosives manufacturer is set to receive an Allen-Bradley CENTERLINE 2500 motor control centre (MCC) for its manufacturing plant.
The PLCnext Control open control platform combines the robustness and security of a classic PLC with the openness and flexibility of the world of smart devices.
STMicroelectronics' STSPIN32F0A programmable motor controller contains fully integrated gate drivers for three external MOSFET half-bridges, an STM32F0 microcontroller (MCU), a 3.3 V DC/DC switching converter plus a 12 V LDO.
u-blox has announced that its SARA-N2 series of modules are being used in a NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) connected smart street lighting control system from Romanian start-up company Flashnet.
Thorlabs has announced the release of an OEM-grade TEC driver for stable temperature control, the MTD1020T. The completely integrated digital temperature controller module can provide output currents up to ±2A and support a maximum TEC compliance voltage of 10 V.
Alta Data Technologies has released a high-density (up to 10 channels) XMC MIL-STD-1553 interface card — the XMC-1553. The product offers what is claimed to be the highest 1553 channel count in the industry with a PCI Express 2.1 backplane.
WAGO's Linux-based PFC100/200 Controllers record all relevant and sensitive measurement and control data, encrypt the data directly in the control system using SSL/TLS 1.2 encryption and transmit the data via VPN.
Excessive humidity, condensation and airborne pollution can cause corrosion, reduce surface resistance and trigger metal migration. maxon motor's ESCON 50/8 DC servo motor controller is not affected by these conditions.
STMicroelectronics has introduced two USB Type-C certified port-controller ICs with built-in protection, which help designers implement interfaces to support their required blend of USB features. These can include power negotiation, managed active cables and support for guest protocols.
The MetroSpec Stirling LCD Controller Board is used to control and display images and information on high-resolution LCD panels.
The L99DZ100G/GP for front-door applications and L99DZ120 for rear-door controls enable designers to save space as well as boost energy efficiency.
STMicroelectronics' PM6773 and PM6776 step-down controllers meet demands for energy-efficient power delivery in servers and data centres using low-voltage, high-current microprocessors, ASICs and field-programmable devices.
The Microchip PIC18F K42 controllers have core independent peripherals (CIPs), high-resolution analog, on-chip direct memory access (DMA) and vectored interrupts for fast processing.
Available on request is the EPOS4 24/1.5 DC motor control module. Weighing just 17 g and measuring 39 x 54 mm, the position controller can also control both brushed DC motors and brushless DC motors (BLDC motors).
