New 3D Printer
[2012-7-30] We've joined the
revolution with the addition of a Prusa Mendel Reprap 3D
printer from MakerGear.
This machine allows us to quickly make fully functional parts
in ABS plastic for prototyping and short production runs.
Our first offering is a replacement for an out-of-production
window screen clip used in a townhouse complex.
We look forward to using the printer to make parts for
our robot prototypes and other devices.
New Sensor Monitoring System
[2012-3-1] GLCC has developed the software for an
industrial hazard monitoring system running on an embedded
server and serving a rich client user interface.
Designed to monitor explosive environments, it continuously
scans a network of industrial sensors for alarm conditions.
It can be used to shut down equipment and pinpoint the
location and nature of a problem long before it
could cause a potentially fatal accident.
This design uses a minimal Linux configuration on an Arm
processor for the server and serves up a Java applet
or application for the operator interface.
Operators can monitor sensor values and diagnose alarms in
real time, chart logged sensor readings, and reconfigure the
system while it's running.
The event driven architecture allows a single embedded processor
to handle thousands of sensors while supporting multiple
simultaneous operator interface sessions.

New Web Interface For HVAC Controllers
[2001-12-19] We're pleased to announce the completion of the first release of a Web based interface for HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning) controllers.
Essentially the system displays in real-time a graphical model of the HVAC system's components including
ducts, fans, dampers, and pumps, along with status readouts of temperatures and settings.
The system allows operators to monitor and adjust HVAC systems using their Web browser.
The system could be adapted to controlling any type of industrial system or equipment.
