[Motion-control components] [Bar-code-reader components] [Product Summary]
Office Automation for Workgroup Productivity
Enhancing the ways we share informationConnectivitynetworking via twisted pair or coaxial cable, fiber optics, or through the air on radio waves or beams of infrared lightis becoming a necessity in todays environment of workgroup integration and information sharing. In new installations, fiber optics help assure capacity and speed to meet future demands as well as eliminating the possibility of lost data due to interference. HP provides economical, reliable fiber-optic transmitters, receivers and transceivers meeting the specifications of virtually all of todays networking standards from desktop connections to wide-area-network backbones. For twisted-pair networking and modem telephone connections, HPs optocouplers not only prevent data corruption due to electrical interference, but protect sensitive low-voltage components from damage from lightning or high-voltage noise.
IrDA-compliant Optical TransceiversIn addition to the industrys most extensive line of fiber-optic components, HP provides a family of Infrared Data Association (IrDA)-compliant optical transceivers, as well as infrared emitters and detectors, operating at speeds of up to 4 Mb/s. Infrared data links, which work at distances of up to 1 meter, can replace wired connections to printers, between notebook and desktop computers, and between computers and networks. With many mobile professionals now using notebook computers as their main computer, wireless connectivity offers the freedom of point and shoot data transfer without the complications of cables and connectors. In many office environments users are discovering that radio-frequency data transmission and networking provides convenience and flexibility. HP offers the componentstransistors, diodes, RFICsused in wireless devices ranging from advanced digital cordless telephones to wireless LAN adapters. Incorporated as an integral part of equipment, or supplied in add-on adapters (dongles), cableless/wireless connectivity is becoming a standard part of the office environment.
LED IndicatorsFor office automation equipment, HPs LED-based products help improve the appearance and readability of control panels while offering an economical solution to life-of-the-equipment reliability. HPs surface-mount LED indicators and illumination sources permit automated assembly of control panels, and are an excellent choice for backlighting control panels, keypads and liquid-crystal displays.
LED DisplaysHPs LED displays are highly visible in dimly-lit environments and are available in a wide variety of character sizes, colors and package configurations including self-contained alphanumeric displays incorporating all necessary decoding circuitry to simplify equipment design, and segmented non-intelligent displays.
Motion-control ComponentsFor equipment using mechanical elements, HP motion control componentsrotary and linear encoders, encoder modules, digital potentiometers and supporting integrated circuitsare a reliable and accurate way to indicate absolute or relative position, velocity or acceleration. For example, HP motion control components are used in ink-jet printers to provide feedback on the position and movement of printheads. HP offers both transmissive encoders and extremely compact, low-cost, moderate-resolution reflective encoders that are small enough to fit within a conventional electric motor assembly.
Bar-code-reader ComponentsMany offices also offer ideal opportunities to save time and assure data-entry accuracy by using bar code labels read by HPs bar-code-reader components. Products include the optical reflective sensors and decoder ICs that make it easy for manufacturers to add bar code capabilities to their own products. HP decoder ICs feature techniques to reduce power consumption and sensitivity to ambient light.
