Tiny, mighty unmanaged Ethernet switches

Designed with space constraints in mind when used in existing cabinets or machines, the EDS-2000-EL series of unmanaged Ethernet switches come in five- and eight-port Ethernet options, with the five-port model measuring 18 × 81 × 65 mm. The switches meet demands for flexibility, reliability, and continuity. Specifications include SC/ST fiber models available for the EDS-2008 series, support for 12/24/48 VDC input, microsecond-level latency, high EMC resistance, and QoS and BSP*** DIP switch configuration.


AMD processors in embedded PCs

The CX20x3 embedded PCs include processors made for 32-bit and 64-bit systems, such as TwinCAT 2 and TwinCAT 3 automation software. The CX2033 is a fanless device without rotating parts using an AMD Ryzen V1202B CPU (2.3-GHz clock frequency, two cores). The CX2043 is a high-performance device with a ball-bearing-mounted and speed-controlled fan equipped with an AMD Ryzen V1807B CPU (3.35-GHz clock frequency, four cores). The processors’ Zen architecture combines high computing power with a high clock frequency. Graphics are integrated separately from the CPU cache, enabling “excellent” real-time characteristics. Users can select the Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2019 LTSC or the new TwinCAT/BSD operating system.

Instrument calibration services

Instrumentation that controls critical quality processes needs to be regularly checked, validated, and calibrated. You can do it yourself or can use third-party providers of fast, traceable, and accredited service. Endress+Hauser can perform and advise on all aspects of calibration, from in-situ testing to fully accredited factory calibration, regardless of brand or maker. A2LA-accredited calibration facilities in Greenwood, Ind., and Pearland, Texas, calibrate flowmeters, pressure sensors, and temperature sensors. The company can also perform on-site calibration using its mobile reference tools and service organizations in the U.S. and in many other countries.



Sunlight-readable industrial tablets

The Rocktab Ultra U200 series of industrial tablets have Intel processors, up to 16 GB RAM, a screen brightness of up to 1000 cd/m2, and a viewing angle of 89° from all sides. The touchscreen can be operated with fingers, work gloves, or the supplied touch pen. Operation in the rain or with a dirty touchscreen is also possible. The Rocktab U212 has an 11.6-inch display, and the Rocktab U214 has a 13.3-inch display. The U212 is 22 mm deep—one of the slimmest tablets in its class. Both are fully IP65 certified and, with MIL-STD-810G military certification, can withstand accidental drops from a height of 1.20 m. They also have large, user-replaceable batteries, with the battery of the U212 being hot-swappable. A built-in 2x2 MU-MIMO WLAN adapter supports 802.11ax, is Wi-Fi 6 certified, and enables data rates of up to 2.4 Gbps. The integrated Intel My Wi-Fi technology lets the tablets act as their own access points when needed.
