KANSAS CITY, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DSI today announced the release of the latest version of its Enterprise Printing Platform™ (EPP), 9.7, with its new Enhancement Engine. The Enhancement Engine was designed to solve difficult labeling challenges around customer and regulatory compliance, as well as enabling serialization. Doing business in the digital economy requires multiple product labels. Customers require not only specific formats to win or keep their business, but also they require that labels conform with their part numbers, date formats and more. EPP’s Enhancement Engine can dynamically adjust the label output based on customers’ needs. The latest release of EPP also enables companies to comply with standards from regulatory organizations. These increasingly complex demands now include track-and-trace, serialization and pictograms. EPP’s Enhancement Engine can inspect the print request and ensure the right label every time. Dynamically change the output to meeting requirements based on weight, destination, carrier, content, or other factors. EPP’s Enhancement Engine can rise to the challenge for GS1, GHS, UDI and DSCSA regulations. Supply chain organizations struggle to create unique serial numbers in one system, let alone with multiple systems and locations all producing the same parts. EPP’s Enhancement Engine issues serial numbers on demand and updates systems of record as well. By integrating with multiple enterprise systems, EPP allows companies to maintain the tight control required to support serialization. “Enhancement Engine helps solve the toughest challenges customers face with their labeling systems,” said Jim Hoskins, Vice President, App Strategy and Development, DSI. “It creates labels within the exact specifications to keep the line moving and ensure accuracy. You won’t find this level of power or performance anywhere in the industry. We have moved beyond labeling software to enterprise labeling solutions and DSI is proud to lead the way.” DSI is the Digital Supply Chain Platform™ company that creates mobile-first and cloud supply chain solutions for the digital economy.

The Asus Tinker Board offers more processing grunt than the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and includes more system memory (Credit: Asus) Originally leaked in January, Asus has announced US availability for its Raspberry Pi challenger – the Tinker Board. The single board computer boasts a quad-core processor supported by 2 GB of system memory, UHD video playback and Hi-Res audio support, and a Bluetooth/Wi-Fi double act. It does cost slightly more than a Pi though. Asus has been churning out top notch motherboards for desktop computers and laptops for many years now, so it's hardly a shock to find the company taking aim at the maker, hobbyist, educator or circuit board scientist with the Tinker Board. The roughly credit card-sized mini computer starts the gauntlet throwing with a 1.8 GHz RK3288 quad-core system-on-a-chip processor and 2 GB of LPDDR3 system memory, which bests the Pi 3 Model B in both spec for spec comparisons. The Asus board also rocks a Mali-T764 GPU and promises 4K video playback support at up to 30 Hz (including H.264/H.265 decoding). And, where you will likely have to attach a separate audio module to the Pi in order to enjoy high quality audio, Asus says that its 85.6 x 56 x 21 mm (3.37 x 2.2 x 0.8 in) Tinker Board is capable of supporting files up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution out of the box. Elsewhere it appears to be much of a muchness. The Tinker Board offers four USB 2.0 ports, a HDMI 1.4 port and 3.5 mm audio jack. It has a 40-pin GPIO interface header for sensors, switches motors and so on, a 15-pin MIPI DSI for connecting a small display or touchscreen and a 15-pin MIPI CSI for cameras. The board is powered via micro-USB, though Asus doesn't provide an adapter so makers will need to source their own 5 V/2.5 A supply. There's Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, plus gigabit Ethernet and a microSD slot for the OS and storage. The board runs on a Linux-based TinkerOS and, which is based on the latest Debian 9 core and includes an optimized Chromium web browser and TinkerOS media player. Android support is also on the to-do list (currently in beta). The Tinker Board is available in the US from today for a suggested retail price of US$54.99. The video below shows what's on offer.

FORT WAYNE, Ind., April 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ:FELE) announced today that it has reached agreement to acquire controlling interests in three distributors in the U.S. professional groundwater market.  Franklin Electric will acquire 2M Company Inc. of Billings, Montana; Western Hydro Holding Corporation of Hayward, California and Drillers Service, Inc. (DSI) of Hickory, North Carolina for approximately $89 million in the aggregate, which includes assumed debt.  The 2M and Western Hydro transactions have closed and the Company expects the DSI acquisition to close before the end of the second quarter 2017.  “The specialized groundwater distribution channel in the U.S. through which we sell our products is an important element in the ultimate sale, support and specification to the installing contractors.  Working in partnership with our distributors, Franklin Electric has developed a broad array of products and systems solutions that will only grow as regulatory and efficiency demands increase in North America. Over the last several years, Franklin Electric has worked closely with the management of these three companies and the leadership of other strategic distribution partners.  These relationships have provided us with insight into and appreciation for the value proposition offered by water systems distribution.  By acquiring Western Hydro, 2M and DSI, including the stand-alone 2M/DSI joint venture, Franklin Electric is forward integrating into this channel with four strong, customer focused organizations competing in the market, increasing our commitment to the entire channel and the installing contractor base. Our new distribution entity, with a national footprint of sixty locations and nearly 500 employees, will be the largest in the industry.” Franklin Electric will operate the acquired distributors in an entity named Headwater Companies, LLC.  The Company has named DeLancey W. Davis, a twenty-five-year industry veteran including the last eleven as an executive officer of Franklin Electric, as President of Headwater Companies, LLC.  Mr. Davis will have overall leadership responsibility for the new Headwater Distribution segment and will begin to immediately integrate the three acquisitions into a single operating unit. For financial reporting purposes, as of the second quarter, all the acquired entities will be wholly owned subsidiaries and included in the Company’s consolidated results.  The Headwater Distribution segment will be reported separately from the existing Water Systems segment, which will continue to report the results of the global water manufacturing business.  The new segment is expected to have operating income margins of approximately 4 to 6 percent and pre-tax return on capital measures consistent with historical Franklin Electric returns after certain integration actions are complete. The new segment will have approximately $275 million of consolidated annual sales and is expected to be neutral to the 2017 adjusted earnings per share guidance of $1.77 to $1.87 the Company has provided. The earnings from the acquired companies are expected to add twelve to fourteen cents to Franklin Electric’s 2018 adjusted earnings per share. “By forward integrating into distribution in the U.S., Franklin Electric is taking a logical next step in our evolution as a groundwater pumping systems company.  This action places Franklin Electric shoulder to shoulder with the key decision makers in this end market—distributors and the installing contractors.  The Headwater companies will continue to operate as full line wholesale distributors with a focus on total water systems support, including products from all industry manufacturers.  Headwater will maintain a laser focus on supporting the professional installing contractor.” A conference call to review this announcement will commence at 9:00 am EDT on Tuesday, April 11, 2017.  The webcast will be available in a listen only mode by going to: If you intend to ask questions during the call, please dial in using (877) 643-7158 for domestic calls and (914) 495-8565 for international calls.  The conference ID is: 3677145 A replay of the conference call will be available Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm EDT through 1:00 pm EDT on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, by dialing (855) 859-2056 for domestic calls and (404) 537-3406 for international calls.  The replay passcode is: 3677145.
