“How long is a piece of string” goes the famous English-language saying. It may be a good answer when no obvious answer otherwise exists. But when it comes to measuring anything, getting the figures right is often a crucial part to any successful undertaking. We know this from experience: the history of engineering is littered with errors of all magnitudes – and regardless of the actual margin of error involved, outcomes can be costly. Very costly indeed.
While the new 5G technology is at the first stages of rollout, Rohde & Schwarz, the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF are taking a step further with demonstrations in the terahertz (THz) frequency band, related to the 6th generation wireless mobile communication (6G). The collaboration has resulted in a wireless transmit and receive system operating between 270 and 320 GHz, with further frequency extensions for potential 6G bands already in preparation.
Ixxat SG-gateways enable data exchange between IEC61850 or IEC60870-5-104 based energy networks and common fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet systems. HMS Networks now introduces new functions, including Mediabreaker functionality and support for IEC60870-5-101, DNP3, OPC-UA and MQTT. The user management has also been improved and a version with Ethernet switch is available.
Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, today announced it will be present at the Smart Building Expo 2019 in Fiera Milano, along with its Austria-based subsidiary LOYTEC. Delta will demonstrate its building automation solutions and its smart charging infrastructure solutions, including LOYTEC’s L-DALI lighting control system, a platform that facilitates eco-friendly management of lighting infrastructure in buildings. Delta’s M88H solar PV inverter, which boasts peak efficiency as high as 98.8%, as well as the 25kW DC Wallbox EV charger, an ideal solution to expand the reach of e-mobility in cities with its lightweight compact design and high power output, will also be vital parts of our showcase.
Lennox has recently expanded its eCOMFORT portfolio with new models ranging from 170 to 400 kW*. Using R32 refrigerant, these additions will allow customers to achieve greater energy efficiency while reducing the environmental impact.
