Panasonic Next-Generation PLC Technology Approved as Baseline Specification by IEEE P1901.3 Working Group

Del

Panasonic Corporation announced that it has presented its fourth-generation scalable HD-PLC(*1) technology to IEEE Standardization Working Group(*2). This technology enables communications over longer distances and improves communication speeds by controlling the range of frequencies in use. Following the Working Group's deliberations, specifications using this technology as the technical baseline have been approved as an IEEE P1901.3 Working Document.

The baseline technology included in the approved IEEE P1901.3 Working Document is based on the technology (standard mode) already adopted for the IEEE 1901 standard, using Panasonic's unique Wavelet OFDM format, but includes a new function (2x/4x modes) which broaden the communication band by a factor of two or four. The 2x mode achieves a communication speed of 500 Mbps, while the 4x mode – which requires coaxial wires or other specialist wires – achieves a maximum communication speed of 1 Gbps.(*3) The new function also enables to narrow the communication band by another factor of two or four (1/2x, 1/4x) from the standard mode. Narrowing the communication band reduces communication speed, but by concentrating energy into a narrow band frequency, communication distance can be lengthened by up to about two times compared to the standard mode.(*4) By enabling to switch between different modes, this technology can flexibly meet the specific needs of each individual customer, and bring HD-PLC technology to a broader range of uses.

The IEEE P1901.3 technology is labelled Internet of Things (IoT) PLC. It can be used both in homes, and within large-scale networks covering everything from larger buildings and factories to entire social infrastructures. It is anticipated that the technology will be used in a wide range of fields in future.

Panasonic will continue to provide user convenience by ensuring connectivity with existing HD-PLC products, and developing a PLC technology that can operate in harmony with other formats. The company will also work through organizations such as the HD-PLC Alliance(*5) to ensure mutual connectivity with IEEE P1901 Series products, and continue to supply PLC products that users can use with confidence.

Norsk Titanium Collaborates with QuesTek Innovations LLC17.7.2018 11:00Pressemelding

Norsk Titanium (Norsk) and QuesTek Innovations LLC (QuesTek) announce a collaborative effort to test novel titanium alloys for applicability in additive manufacturing processes. As part of this collaboration, the companies are evaluating a QuesTek-designed titanium alloy using Norsk’s Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) process. Preliminary evaluation of the alloy is complete and Norsk has manufactured initial test specimens. The test program will characterize the alloy microstructure, provide initial material properties, and will confirm QuesTek’s Ti alloy performance using Norsk’s proven production process. QuesTek’s patented titanium alloy has previously demonstrated approximately 15% greater strength and improved ductility over traditional Ti-6Al-4V in both wire-based Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing and traditional casting processes. "We are excited to be working closely with Norsk Titanium’s business and technical team to evaluate our alloy in their proven process. Based on our i
