Robot demonstrates memory functionality of non-volatile keys

Nexus GB : 07 November, 2012  (New Product)
Nexus is exhibiting its range of non volatile keys, tokens and receptacles at the Southern Manufacturing show, which takes place in Farnborough, Hampshire on 13 and 14 February 2013. Nexus is using a custom designed robot application to illustrate the potential.
Robot demonstrates memory functionality of non-volatile keys

Nexus’ range of portable memory solutions are designed to work in environments where heat, dust, moisture or accidental damage would cause conventional memory cards and USB devices to fail. They are used in applications ranging from data logging, cashless vending, security, and access control devices. These products have found homes in industry sectors including medical, food and pharmaceuticals.

The custom robot application on the stand will be demonstrating the simple design functionality of the token and receptacle system. This way, the company hopes to make it easier for engineers to immediately see the purpose of the technology. “We often find that once an engineer sees how our tokens work, they are convinced of their benefits,” explained Victoria James, marketing and PR director at Nexus GB. “The robot application offers a simple, visual demonstration of how specialised memory products can be integrated into a variety of applications.”

“Selling specialist industrial memory to OEMs is a continual process of raising awareness,” continued James. “Our competition really comes from forms of memory like SDHC cards and USB sticks which are not actually suitable for industrial applications. Our job is to remind engineers that memory should be fit for purpose and that consumer products are not the only option available. They are less rugged, become obsolete more quickly and are highly susceptible to viruses and malware. In contrast, the tokens, key and receptacles we sell are specifically developed for design engineers to build into original equipment.”

Amongst the systems on display will be the GammaSafe memory token for the medical device manufacturing sector. The token is a non-volatile, reprogrammable, portable memory device that survives gamma sterilisation with no loss of data.  It also allows medical device manufacturers to easily add anti-counterfeit and limit-use capabilities to disposable attachments that are sterilised using gamma radiation.

Also on show will be the high capacity RuggeDrive tokens and receptacles, which allow system designers to incorporate large memory devices into their designs, without the shortcomings that consumer-focused solutions bring. The memory tokens are easily integrated into embedded controllers, single board computers and industrial PC designs.
