A123’s new 26650 cylindrical cell is the next generation that brings greater power and energy density and lower impedance. This versatile lithium-ion cell is suitable for a wide variety of applications and systems designs. Proven performance in the toughest conditions, combining durability, reliability, and safety, the 26650 cylindrical cell offers an excellent combination of price-performance. The cylindrical cell’s primary applications are for use as portable, high-power devices and as stationary battery backup systems. Endress+Hauser releases the Memograph M RSG45 Data Manager, a compact device that can serve as a data acquisition system for small process control applications. The RSG45 acquires up to 14 discrete and 20 universal/HART analog inputs from process sensors, displays sensor data on its 7-inch multicolor TFT screen, records the data internally, performs math calculations and alarm checks, and transmits the data to a PC or any control system via Ethernet, RS232/485, Modbus, Profibus DP or PROFINET digital communication links. Data can also be stored to a device plugged into the USB or the SD port. Inputs to the RSG45 include 4-20mA, 4-20mA with HART, voltage, RTD, ...
