To provide protection against noise and fault conditions, Texas Instruments Inc. (Dallas, TX) recently introduced what it reports are the world's first extended, common-mode RS-485 transceivers. TI's SN65HVD2X devices reportedly more than double Telecommunications Industry Alliance/Electronic Industries Alliance's (TIA/EIA) present RS-485 requirements.

  • National Instruments (NI, Austin, TX) reports that European sensor vendors are joining NI's Plug & Play Sensors Program. This is a collaborative effort by NI and sensor vendors to gain widespread adoption of IEEE P1451.4, which is a proposed standard for analog sensors that would reportedly make integrating "smart" sensors into measurement systems as easy as connecting a mouse to a computer.

  • To expand its presence in the $60-billion and growing global sensors and instrumentation market, GE Industrial Systems (Plainville, CT) recently purchased SI Pressure Instruments, previously a unit of Hill & Smith Holding PLC. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. SI Pressure Instruments will become part of GE Druck (Leicester, U.K.), which is a unit of GE Industrial Systems' measurement business.

  • Entivity Inc. (Ann Arbor, MI) has released its Steeplechase Visual Logic Controller (VLC) 6.1 software. It includes Transaction Express as the newest component of its PC-based control system. Transaction Express is a global data port that allows control engineers and IT professionals to gather and modify data in Entivity's data tables.
