Increasing demands for Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology in industrial applications can now be met with a complete end-to-end solution from CrispTech. PoE technology lets you eliminate the need for power outlets when deploying ethernet-enabled devices. This means that VoIP phones, IP cameras and other similar devices can be connected to the network and powered by a single ethernet cable.
The EDDL Cooperation Team (ECT) and the FDT Group have agreed to combine their efforts and work towards a unified solution for device integration that is compatible with both technologies.
The newly released Multenet router facilitates easy connection of remote devices (such as ATMs, remote monitoring devices, weighscales, emergency warning equipment) or remote networks, to corporate networks or the internet, in a simple, low-cost, yet very reliable device. Based on the successful Multenet PocketPAD series, the new router adds USB connectivity (in addition to two serial ports), as well as built-in VPN functionality. The result is secure and reliable asynchronous routing over dial-up (PSTN) or cellular (GSM/GPRS or 3G/HSDPA) modem links.
The BACnet standard for building automation has become so widespread that it is now impossible to imagine building control technology without it. For this reason, Saia-Burgess Controls, a longstanding member of the "BACnet Interest Group Europe" (BIG-EU), also offers the new Saia PCD3 series as a "BACnet Building Controller" (B-BC).
Profibus & Profinet International (PI) is standardising the use of Profinet in process automation. After completing the integration of Profibus PA in Profinet IO, work was extended to include the integration of HART and Foundation Fieldbus
Schneider Electric has become one of ODVAâ€™s principal members and will significantly increase its level of support for the organisation.
The DDW 100 ethernet over copper extender from Westermo AS is not a router but a plug-and-play transparent bridge. It provides the ability to reuse an existing single twisted copper pair as a LAN segment up to a distance of 10 Km at up to 2.3 Mbps using robust SHDSL modulation.
