The Quantum Ethernet card from Groupe Schneider (North Andover, Mass.) with embedded Web server allows users with browsers and Ethernet TCP/IP connections to "browse" PLCs for status information. IBS PLC5 DSC/I-T is a controller board from Phoenix Contact (Harrisburg, Pa.) that provides an Interbus connection for Allen-Bradley's PLC5 1771-series I/O structure. Thunder from Face International Corp. (Norfolk, Va.) is a piezoceramic layer bonded to thin metal layers on top and bottom, which causes a mechanical pre-stress condition that allows it to be used as an actuator or a sensor. Cutler-Hammer/Eaton (Columbus, O.) displayed D710, a 15-in. active matrix LCD color flat panel display, and NetPoiNT HMI software that allows developers to generate HTML (hypertext markup language) pages.
