San Luis Obispo, CA, May 21, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Starman Electric announces the release of five evaluation kits for the DataBridge™ Series RF Modules. The new evaluation kits from Starman Electric provide an instant testing and development platform for all DataBridge wireless I/O modules. The evaluation kits are designed to suit hundreds of wireless applications for analog, digital, and serial signals. Five kit configurations are available, each providing a direct wired interface for analog 0-10V I/O, digital 0-12V I/O, serial RS232, serial RS485, serial-USB, and more. Evaluation boards include multiple power options including battery, USB, or external supply.


"With today's fast paced market, electronics developers want their wireless design up and running as soon as possible. While DataBridge modules have always been plug-and-play, previous prototypes required breadboards or custom PCBs for the module, but with the new evaluation kit developers can experience our plug-and-play wireless modules in a matter of seconds," said Michael Starman, Founder of Starman Electric.

DataBridge RF modules do not require any software or programming experience, and can be configured through a simple jumper interface which is included on each evaluation board. A serial command line interface is also supported, and can be accessed through UART, RS232, RS485, or USB.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
