Network Cable
Network Cable
A Network Cable is used to exchange information between robots, other sensor devices, or computers. Network cables can be replaced with a wireless network, however network cables offer certain advantages that can only be available to a wired connection.

Networks that are wired can transfer data at faster rates, over longer distances, and in many situations are much less susceptible to EMI noise. In the case of fiber optic cables, EMI noise can be completely eliminated from the transmission lines, which makes them ideal in noisy environments.

Network cables can also be used to supply power to remote devices such as poE (power over Ethernet) as well as eliminating security threats that might exist with a wireless data network. Additionally, wired networks do not require as much energy to maintain connection since they do not need to broadcast signals over the large distances that wireless networks do.

Typical network cables consist of twisted pair cables (for noise and cross-talk elimination) such as in a CAT-5 Ethernet cable, Coax cable (for shielding the inner conductor), and optical fiber network cables.

PLEO is an Autonomous robotic life form, modeled on a young Camarasaurus dinosaur.

PLEO is designed to mimic life, which means PLEO thinks and acts independently, just like a real animal. In general, a Life Form looks, moves, and behaves in ways that trigger a "belief of life". Sepcifically, PLEO has organic body language, exhibits emotions, is aware of his/her surroundings and has recognizable behaviors. PLEO' sophisticated sensory system has devices that enable him to hear, to see, to sense touch, and to detect objects. It is the newest member of your family!

• Every PLEO LifeForm includes: Companion Guide, Training Leaf, Authenticity ID Card, One Li-Polymer Rechargeable Battery, Charging cradle, and Universal voltage power Adapter.
• Not intended for children under the age of 12.
• Product Dimensions: 15 x 4 x 8 inches - Weight: 8.8 pounds.
• Pleo's Li-Polymer battery provides longer play time than 2009 Pleo. Recharging a depleted battery takes 4 hours.
• US/Non-U.S. Version includes: 100-240VAC 50/60Hz universal adapter
