Like its predecessor board RutDevKit-STM32L5 the Development Kit RDK2 offers a complete solution for hardware and firmware developers and a basis for a modular toolkit, so that proof of concepts can be created in a very short time. The board is run on the PSoC™ 62 MCU by Infineon. The microcontroller has a dual core CPU and is therefore ideal for secure edge computing and cloud applications. The PSoC™ 62 has an integrated power management IC for SMPS for all connected power supplies. The board's new and unique butterfly design allows for improved handling and user-friendly access to the Arduino connectors and reduces potential interference from electromagnetic effects, especially with RF IoT Arduino Shields. The integrated potentiometer can be used for testing the analog-to-digital conversion. A special feature is that the user can access all pins of the PSoC™ 62 via supplied headers. In addition, a capacitive sensor technology has been installed, the so-called CAPSENSE™.
The RutAdaptboard-TextToSpeech can be used for a variety of HMI (Human Machine Interface) applications e.g. smoke detectors, elevators, handheld devices, vending machines, access controls or health products. The speech output is available in different languages e.g.: British English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese (Mandarin). Because of its Arduino pinout it can be operated on any evaluation board with Arduino interfaces. For the speech output an external speaker is needed that can be connected with a 3,5mm Jack socket. The actual speech output is being generated through a PC software and controlled by the host microcontroller. Thus, the functionality of the corresponding HMI can be expanded and significant time and cost savings can be achieved.
The RutAdaptBoard-HMS allows the user to operate the HMS Anybus technology on any evaluation board with Arduino header. The HMS technology is being realised with the attachable PCBs "AnybusCompactCom B40" and the appropriate "Connector Board".
It enables the communication via all common fieldbus and industrial ethernet networks such as EtherCAT, PROFINET, Modbus, POWERLINK, CC-Link, PROFIBUS and many more.
HMS Anybus needs a host microcontroller, that is controlled through a serial interface. This system solution offers the quickest entry for industrial ethernet / fieldbus, that can be configured through software.
The HESS is a hybrid energy storage system makes use of the advantages of lithium ion batteries and super capacitors (super caps). When operating conventional battery-powered industrial systems in combination with highly dynamic loads (e.g. inductive load), high-frequency current changes with very high current amplitudes are continuously present. Highly dynamic charging and discharging of supercaps is used to provide or absorb this short-term energy. Only nominal currents are applied to the battery. Uncertainties in the system result from the unwanted and parasitic effects in the electronics of DC/DC converters. Oscillations occur in the system and have to be controlled (analog or digital).
The system solution electronic nose works like the human sensory organ. Like our nose the system detects volatile compounds and volatile organic compounds (VOC) that emit odors or can be harmful to ones health. This system selectively stimulates the compounds and analyses and characterises the behaviour of the compounds physically and biochemically. When observing volatile compounds in the air, the state is not stationary, it is a volatile state. The status depends on the chemical and physical parameters that are not constant. Thus, a volatile and multidimensional and ever changing system exists.
The system solution virus eliminator makes use of the disinfecting effect of UVC LEDs. When observing volatile compounds and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the air, the state is not stationary, it is a volatile state. The status depends on the chemical and physical parameters that are not constant. The virus eliminator is a safe and closed system, that precisely destroys the molecular and organic composition of viruses and bacteria in the air.
The system solution odor eliminator makes use of the odor destroying properties of UVA LEDs. Volatile compounds and volatile organic compounds (VOC) can cause odors and can be harmful in certain concentration. The state is not stationary, it is a volatile state. The status depends on the chemical and physical parameters that are not constant. Thus, a volatile and multidimensional and ever changing system exists. The odor eliminator is a system that selectively stimulates volatile compounds. The molecular composition of the VOCs is changed and analysed and destroyed with the help of UVA LEDs.
The wasp scare is a system solution that selectively influences the sense of smell of wasps. The influence only occurs within a defined radius. The sense of smell is being limited, so that the insects cannot sense stimuli within that radius. This can be for example the smell of fruit or meat. The technical solution can be adapted to a variety of insects.
