Experimenting with EcmaScript 2015

By mvuilleu, in Programming and New stuff, december 18,2015.

JavaScript comes back from far away. Originally, it was only a source of incompatibilities and a nightmare for web designers. Having to code a version for IE and one for Netscape on the same web site was commonplace. Fortunately, the JavaScript language has evolved amazingly to become the ubiquitous companion of HTML5 on almost all internet sites on the planet. With the latest version of the language, adopted as a new standard this past Summer, new possibilities came into being. They deserve to be known and exploited.

New product: the Yocto-4-20mA-Tx

By martinm, in New stuff, december 11,2015.

This week, we present the alter-ego of the Yocto-4-20mA-Rx, that is the Yocto-4-20mA-Tx. This small module enables you to control industrial actuators, as long as they have a 4-20mA input. Let's have a closer look, shall we?

Decoding quadrature signals

By mvuilleu, in Measures and New stuff, october 16,2015.

The Yocto-PWM-Rx is a sensor with two inputs designed to measure electrical pulse trains. Up to now, we measured the signal on each input for itself, independently from the other input. Now, on top of this, you can analyze the two inputs as a pair of quadrature encoded signals.

The Yocto-GPS

Earth seen from the Discovery shuttle, courtesy of NASABy now, you must have understood it: Yoctopuce R&D department works like a weathercock. The expression is somewhat simplistic, but we do really try to fulfill our customers' expectations. Each time a customer asks us whether we wouldn't want, by any chance, to create a module to do this or that, we carefully write down the request. And we create new products depending on the interest they rouse. This week, it's time for the new GPS module that you have demanded quite often.

And here is the Yocto-RS485!

By mvuilleu, in New stuff, march 20,2015.

In an industrial environment, the 4-20mA standard is a practical and robust mean to move a captor several hundreds of meters away. But when you multiply the number of sensors or the physical parameters to be measured, or when the resolution of analog transmissions is not good enough, you must find another transmission system. That's when the RS-485 standard comes in: it is the industrial cousin of the RS-232. And from today, thanks to the Yocto-RS485, you can interface RS-485 devices with the same ease of use an any Yoctopuce module.
