If you’re looking for a motion control system for embedding in factory production applications, we’d suggest taking a look at the MAI602-M4D80 from iBASE. This has been designed for use in a number of manufacturing processes such as automated optical inspection, semiconductor wafer handling, packaging and material handling systems. But don’t just take our word for it – check out the specifications below.
When lives depend on it, maritime ICT needs to be robust, fit for purpose and durable. There are no spare parts depots in the middle of the ocean and if your technology fails it can put your crew in danger.
The Internet of Things is here and nowhere more so than in smart factories, where embedded computers are now automating the production line to an extent hitherto only imagined. If you’re looking for an intelligent IoT gateway system for industrial control, we would suggest you take a look at iBase’s Intel Apollo Lake-based AGS series – the AGS100 and the AGS102
Rugged is now stocking the iBase AMS300 Series expandable modular embedded system for smart factory automation applications. Powered by Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors, this compact, yet expandable, fanless system is ideal for industrial control and measurement processes, with the big advantage of having been designed for deployment in harsh conditions.
Forklift trucks are the driving force behind effective warehouse logistics – and if you operate a forklift fleet, rugged onboard computers are an absolute necessity
When it comes to choosing a medical keyboard, it’s certainly not a matter of one size fits all. At Rugged, we stock a wide range of different medical keyboards, and while they all comply with the essentials – fully sealed, waterproof, robust and easily cleanable – there are different levels of functionality, different layouts and different materials to choose between.
In sectors such as the military, marine, industrial and energy, harsh environments demand the most robust equipment. Dirt, dust, moisture, vibration and knocks mean that consumer-grade technology simply isn’t up to the job, and when it comes to displays, you need to know that they’re not going to crack under pressure.
This is a question we get asked a lot. People want to know which are the best programmable keyboards for use in industrial and challenging environments? Several factors are important in choosing programmable keyboards. Obviously, they need to offer a fully programmable layout, allowing for full customisation to suit users’ specific needs. Reliability is just as important – they must be fit for purpose and robust enough for the setting in which they’ll be used.
Finding joysticks that can withstand the rigours of harsh industrial and environmental conditions can present a challenge. You’re looking for the ideal combination – on the one hand they need to be tough and resilient to the conditions, but on the other, they need to offer precise control and accurate movement. Our recommendation would be to take a look the Megatron range of rugged and industrial joysticks – with over 37 designs to choose from, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
