Communication in Hard Real Time

  Rutronik

Ethernet protocols are making inroads into the industrial sector as the world of work becomes increasingly networked and automated. The office world and the world of production lines might be growing ever closer – but the type of Ethernet protocols used in PCs for Internet communication cannot be transferred one-to-one into automation technology. However, developers have come up with suitable solutions to...

A Higher Voltage Level

  Rutronik

The 12V electrical architecture is being pushed to its limits by the increasing demand for power in modern-day cars. As a result, 48V may prove to be the standard system of the future. This not only opens up opportunities for new innovations, but also creates the platform for meeting ever stricter CO2 targets.

Supercaps - a replacement for batteries?

  Rutronik

As supercaps (supercapacitors, electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs)) become more and more popular, there is an increasing desire to migrate the power supplies for various applications from batteries to EDLCs. However, in many cases this is not a logical step as a 1:1 exchange, or is even impossible. Many applications can nevertheless be optimized with the aid of supercaps.
