Deployment of LTE technology allows the mobile operators to reuse spectrum positions and simplify the network, to improve the efficiency of operation and to control the cost which was absolutely impossible with 2G and 3G technology deployment. The synchronization modules play an important role in the deployment of LTE technology and INNOS brings a revolutionary module for multiple synchronization into existence.
engravR is a Raspberry Pi powered laser engraver built primarily from two old DVDRW drives. The advantage of using the Pi is that the system can be entirely self contained. With the addition of a wifi dongle, user can print remotely from another computer over the local network instead of having to connect an Arduino via USB to a host computer. Learn more.
Raspberry Pi does not come with a good battery power supply. Build a long lasting and reliable battery source to get the Pi away from the desk and out in the world, where it belongs. Tap an 18V drill battery for a rugged, rechargeable Raspberry Pi power supply. Learn more.
Charge NiCd or NiMH batteries with solar cells. This application note describes a circuit which extracts the maximum power from a solar array to charge a battery stack. It employs the MAX856 boost converter and MAX982 dual comparator with reference.
Wirelessly transferred power simplifies the charging of these devices and brings more convenience to the everyday lives of the customers. Dedicated controllers are required for wireless charging application control. Freescale provides the WCT1xxx family of the dedicated controllers for the wireless charging applications. Learn more.
The use of wireless technology in industrial automation systems offers a number of potential benefits, from the obvious cost reduction brought about by the elimination of wiring to the availability of better plant information, improved productivity and better asset management. However, its practical implementation faces a number of challenges. This article looks at some of these challenges and presents the approach being taken by Yokogawa.
Modbus is the fundamental network protocol used in most industrial applications today. The pivotal advantage of Modbus is that it can run over virtually all communication media, including twisted pair wires, wireless, fibre optics, Ethernet, telephone modems, cell phones and microwave which would imply that a Modbus connection could be easily established on a new or existing factory floor. This white paper examines the functionality of Modbus and ways that Modbus can be used in industrial applications.
