Gigabit Ethernet Cameras

Baumer, Southington, CT, has introduced the TXG series of Gigabit Ethernet cameras designed to provide Power over Gigabit Ethernet, eliminating the need for a separate power cable. The cameras are designed for vision systems such as robotic applications where additional cables can be problematic. An industrial dual-port power injector module or multi-point power switches provide power the Ethernet cable at distances up to 100 m.

Current Attractions

Glenn Rakow is the Development Lead for SpaceWire, a high-speed communications protocol for space-flight electronics originally developed in 1999 by the European Space Agency (ESA). Under Rakow's leadership, the SpaceWire standard was developed into a network of nodes and routers interconnected through bi-directional, high-speed serial links, making the system more modular, flexible, and reusable.

Lab-On-A-Chip

A team led by Professor Yosi Shacham-Diamand, vice-dean of Tel Aviv University's Faculty of Engineering, has developed a nano-sized laboratory, complete with a microscopic workbench, to measure water quality in real time. This lab-on-a-chip is a breakthrough in the effort to keep water safe from pollution. "We've developed a platform - essentially a micro-sized, quarter-inch square 'lab' - employing genetically engineered bacteria that light up when presented with a stressor in water," says Shacham-Diamand. Equipment on the chip can work to help detect very tiny light levels produced by the bacteria.
