Siemens Ruggedcom RX1400 is a multiprotocol intelligent node which combines Ethernet switching, routing and firewall functionality with various WAN connectivity options. The device is IP40 rated, does not use fans for cooling, operates continuously within a -40° C to +85° C temperature range and comes with a rugged metal housing that supports DIN rail, panel, or rack mounting.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference, heavy electrical surges, extreme temperature and humidity for reliable operation in harsh environments. The integrated GNSS (GPS/GLONASS) functionality allows the device to report its location as necessary for asset tracking purposes in large scale deployments.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 is designed to support primary communications over commercial LTE networks and leverage LTE's enhanced capabilities for QoS (Quality of Service) management. For reliability purposes the device is able to rollback to 2G and 3G wireless connectivity.
In addition the cellular router is equipped with a Dual SIM card slot which enables automatic failover in case of interruption in the communication. The device can also be used with two optional small form factor pluggable fiber optic transceivers (SFPs), to establish wireline communication in areas where fiber is available.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 offers a cost saving solution for large scale deployments. Its compact form factor allows installation in existing cabinets, while advanced cyber security features make it ideally suitable for mission-critical applications, where high reliability and secure communications is of paramount importance, i.e. utility substations, traffic control cabinets, railway applications, oil and gas and other harsh environment situations.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
