BLADE FOR REMOTELY MONITORING
The HDTBlade is designed for applications requiring high-performance monitoring of multiple T1/E1 ports. It is comprised of a multi-board architecture consisting of a 6U CompactPCI 2.16-compliant Packet Processing Blade with a PowerPC-based ProcessorPMC (PrPMC) module and a Rear Transition Module (RTM). Another feature is the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) subsystem used to monitor board voltage conditions, system status and to determine slot position. A Wintegra™ Network Processor supports two Fast Ethernet ports. This blade is well suited for vital applications such as protocol and applications monitoring, service level agreement (SLA) management, communications security and intelligence monitoring, and network testing and debugging. A Linux support package is included. SBS TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Albuquerque, NM. INDICATE 227.
SENSOR WITH LARGE FOV
The Big Beam Sensor (BBS) is suitable where fast one-dimensional measurements are needed such as on a production line. It uses a modulated laser source to backlight the object being measured. The portion of this light that reaches the receiver (detector) is proportional to the dimension of the part, generating dimensional data output. It offers a compact package size with sensing lengths up to 1 meter (3.3 ft) apart without affecting accuracy. A large beam height up to 30 mm (1.18”) ensures proper measurement for larger targets. Accuracy is better than 0.5% at 5 kHz, repeatability is 30µ and typical resolution is 0.003 mm (0.00012”) of the measurement range. Measurement frequency is up to 5 kHz. The sensor has a simple, high-speed analog output. A sensor controller/ amplifier also comes with the unit. LMI TECHNOLOGIES (USA), INC. Southfield, MI. INDICATE 226.
