Industrial-strength dust- and water-proof devices are nothing new. Most of the time, however, such devices are not aesthetically pleasing. Tibbo's achievement is that we have managed to combine industrial strength, elegant appearance, and the flexibility of a truly programmable system in a single easy-to-use package.
Taipei, Taiwan (PRWEB) May 27, 2008
Tibbo Technology is pleased to announce that its DS1000 BASIC-programmable industrial controller is now IP68-compliant.
In Taipei, Mr. Dmitry Slepov, Managing Director and one of the founders of Tibbo Technology, has commented on this new development: "Industrial-strength dust- and water-proof devices are nothing new. Most of the time, however, such devices are not aesthetically pleasing. Tibbo's achievement is that we have managed to combine industrial strength, elegant appearance, and the flexibility of a truly programmable system in a single easy-to-use package."
IP ("International Protection Rating") is a widely used standard of ruggedness. The higher the IP number is, the more resilient is the rated device. The rating of IP68 is very high, and is considered sufficient for most industrial applications.
The DS1000 becomes dust- and waterproof once a special secondary waterproof cover is installed. The cover attaches to the top of the DS1000 and accommodates up to six signal cables that can securely "exit" through it.
Other devices in the DS10xx family, due later this year, will also be IP68-compliant.
Located in Taipei, Taiwan, Tibbo Technology Inc. brings simplicity to the embedded world defined by enormous complexity of operating systems, programming languages, and design tools. Established in 1999, Tibbo originally staked out a niche in the highly competitive Device Server arena. Tibbo has realized early on that its customers were going to need much more than just a fixed-function serial-to-Ethernet converter. Moreover, market pressure to add network functionality to an increasing number of devices and systems was going to bring to the "networking table" a large number of developers and integrators with no prior experience in embedded networking and professional programming languages, such as C++.
Recognizing the significance of this trend, Tibbo has entered the field of rapid embedded application development, and in January 2006 announced its first generation of BASIC-programmable devices and development tools. Now in their second generation, Tibbo's BASIC-programmable modules, external devices, and Tibbo IDE software offer an attractive alternative to complex development environments prevailing on the market today.
