An assortment of new products was introduced into the automation and controls marketplace recently. Included are a single-board computer for critical applications, a signal tower, and two operator interface products for the PlantWeb architecture.


MLB-7910 high-performance embedded single-board computer from Arista Corp ., designed for critical applications that require 24/7 reliability. Platform is tailored for network requirements with a Pentium 4 CPU and five LAN ports on board. Built-in IDE interface supports two enchanced IDE devices, including the Ultra DMA 33/66/100 mode with a data transfer rate up to 100 MB/sec. Board supports all popular operating systems including DOS, embedded Linux, Windows 95/98/2000/NT, NT embedded, and CE.

Kompact 36 LED signal tower from Werma Signaltechnik is designed for small machines and devices. Unit features a compact 36 mm diameter, is available in 2- or 3-tier versions, and offers either cable or plug connections to allow two or three defined statuses to be signaled with only one signal device. Non-modular, completely assembled towers last up to 50,000 hours and can be operated via a PLC control system. Get more information from Norstat Inc .

DeltaV Operate and DeltaV Interface products for RS3 and PROVOX components from Emerson Process Management are designed to ease the transition to the PlantWeb digital plant architecture. Delta V Operate products let customers use the DeltaV operator workstation in place of their existing operator stations. DeltaV interface products provide a way to replace PROVOX and RS3 controllers with DeltaV controllers. Existing wiring remains as-is to minimize installation time.
