Schneider Digital’s innovative, passive stereo monitor family has added a fourth model: with immediate effect, the 3D PluraView display is also available in a compact housing with 24” screen diagonal and Full HD resolution.

The 3D PluraView monitor family is the passive 3D stereo system with the highest user acceptance of any 3D stereo monitor currently on the market. The plug & play beam splitter technology has been established in the market for 14 years and has become established in the 4K 10-bit (UHD) version as a 3D stereo reference. In addition to the three available models, a fourth 3D PluraView now joins the family of monitors:The 3D PluraView 24” with 144Hz refresh rate and full HD resolution.

In the areas of GIS / mapping, photogrammetry, laser scanning, computer tomography, simulation, molecular research or design / CAD stereo software applications, these four different models are available for a wide variety of requirements.

Entry-level model with low installation depth

As a starter model for workplaces whose software application has lower resolution requirements, the PluraView Full HD 3D with 22” or 24” screen diagonal with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels is ideal. Its compact housing with a small overall depth also requires very little space on the desk and is very well suited for open-plan offices with many workstations in a small space. The compact 3D PluraView with automatic mirror lock is already delivered fully assembled as plug & play system and is immediately ready for use.

For 3D stereo operation of the 22” & 24” 3D PluraView on a mobile workstation, there are only two of the following digital connections on the laptop: DVI / HDMI / DisplayPort / mini DisplayPort / Thunderbolt / USB-C. The listed connections can also be used mixed!

High brightness and color depth

The PluraView 2.5K with a 27” screen size and a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels offers a particularly high brightness of 350 cd / m². The top model of the monitor series is the PluraView 4K 3D visualized on a screen diagonal of 28” 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution with 10-bit (UHD) color depth. Both models are equipped with a DisplayPort 1.2 mirror card integrated in the premium housing. Connecting the 3D PluraView 27” or 28” requires the following digital mixing connections on the laptop: 2x Thunderbolt ™ 3 or 2x DisplayPort / mini DisplayPort.

Bilfinger
Virtual Annual General Meeting planned for June

Published

on

Due to the spread of the coronavirus (Sars-Cov-2), Bilfinger is planning to conduct its regular Annual General Meeting on June 24, 2020 as a virtual general meeting without the physical presence of shareholders. The protection of the health of employees, shareholders and service providers is given the highest priority.

The framework for holding a virtual Annual General Meeting is provided for by the regulations created by the German legislator for the year 2020 to mitigate the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Annual General Meeting shall only be accessible to shareholders who have registered in due time via the company’s website. By using a previously established online portal, these shareholders shall be able to observe the entire Annual General Meeting and to exercise their voting rights electronically (postal vote) or by granting a proxy. The online portal will in addition enable them to submit questions on agenda items up to two days prior to the Annual General Meeting.

IO-Link and JSON
Fully in line with Industry 4.0

Published

on

The IO-Link Community has published a new specification for easy data exchange. This specification describes how data can be exchanged by IO-Link over JSON REST and MQTT – fully in line with the transparent communication of Industry 4.0.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are among the most important concepts and developments for the future of industrial communication. This future will require transparent communication from the lowest sensor/actuator level to a new generation of mobile and cloud-based applications. One of the deciding factors for this future will be simple, standardized and cross-manufacturer protocols. These protocols have to be able to work across all physical layers in order to enable global access to data for identification, diagnostic and configuration information. In the field of automation technology, Ethernet-based communication has been very widely implemented on the transport layer for some time now. Profinet is a global market leader ahead of all the others here.

For seamless data transport into the world of IT, JSON (Java Script Object Notation) has established itself as a highly streamlined exchange format which can be used across all system boundaries. Through additional specification of the semantics, easy interpretation of the data is also made possible. This enables the seamless connection of the IO-Link level to MES/ERP systems, cloud-based services and applications outside classical PLC automation in general.

The demand for uniform standardized data consistency from the lowest field level to cloud-based services was accepted by the IO-Link Community, which first defined a JSON-based exchange format in a dedicated working group and thus the uniform semantic integration of the IO-Link field level into the world of IT. The specification encompasses both the definition of an API as the REST interface and data transport over MQTT.

This standardized exchange format now provides fundamentally new opportunities, such as cross-manufacturer engineering and global access to measurement values and other monitoring data. For example, classical configuration tools can be tied in across all manufacturers by JSON via REST. Streamlined “sensor to cloud” (IIoT) applications are also easy to implement with the very widely used MQTT protocol with the publisher/subscribe mechanism. This even makes it possible to implement a cloud-based automation task with manufacturer-independent components, for example.
