Round Solutions Creates WLAN Module for Wireless Machine Control
More and more highly sophisticated devices – from the CNC turning lathe to the coffeemaker – can send and receive data via TCP/IP and thus over the Internet. So far, however, a hardwired communications path realised with Ethernet was usually necessary to achieve such an exchange. This often led to quite complicated and thus expensive line installations. Round Solutions now presents a solution on the basis of WLAN.

AXIOMTEK Debuts eBOX832-831, eBOX832-840 Systems with Intel Core 2 Duo
AXIOMTEK, an Associate Member of the Intel® Embedded and Communications Alliance (ECA), is pleased to introduce two compact yet high performance embedded computers, the eBOX832-831 and eBOX832-840, which feature flexible selections of processing power and offer superior graphics via a PCI Express x16 slot. With the extremely rugged aluminum housing only 300 x 210 x 104.5 mm (11.8″ x 8.27″ x4.11″) in size, these compact-size rugged industrial systems can be applied in the most of harsh environments.
