is showcasing several solutions for the industrial, healthcare, and automotive markets at electronica 2016 (hall A4, stand 279).
Lost productivity is a common concern for Industry 4.0 designers challenged with keeping a manufacturing line running 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The company’s Pocket IO programmable logic controller (PLC) development platform brings real-time intelligence, adaptive manufacturing, and distributed control to traditional manufacturing processes.
Maxim will also be hosting a number of live demonstrations related to Industry 4.0:
- Soccer Ball Testing and Personalization Factory
- Detecting Your Goal Throw with Light Curtains
- Measuring Soccer Ball Bounce Height
- Soccer Ball Robotic Circumference Measurement
- Precision Control of a Line Following Robot
- FLIR Heat Map Comparison of IO-Link Transceivers
- Power Solution Size and Efficiency Comparison
With regard to wearable health and fitness applications, Maxim’s ultra-small hSensor Platform enables designers to quickly and easily validate next-generation solutions. The complete development platform, with ARM mbed support, purports to eliminate up to six months of design time.
