<![CDATA[Kepware выпускает версию 6.3 ПО KEPServerEX®]]> http://so-l.ru/news/y/2017_09_28_kepware_vipuskaet_versiyu_6_3_po_kepserve Thu, 28 Sep 2017 09:18:00 +0300 <![CDATA[Robotics ETFs Head to Head (revised)]]> The global robotics market is experiencing robust growth as demand for automation is increasing. With the advancement of technology and a drive towards more efficient business operations, robotics sector has garnered a lot of investor attention, as they seek to get a share of the pie of returns this sector offers.

Industry-Wise Demand

Per a new report by Global Market Insights, the automotive sector will see the robotics market worth almost $6 billion by 2024. Usage of robotics is expected to lower labor costs and increase product quality and efficiency in production.

Global Mobile Robotics Software Market is expected to reach $3.5 billion by 2024, per the report. Increased focus on safety, while working with robots, is driving growth in the sector. Advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are driving expansion. Moreover, the military robotics market is expected to hit $30.8 billion by 2022.

Therefore, it does not come as a shocker that Robotics ETFs are getting attention as they are an efficient way of gaining exposure to this sector. Let us look at two ETFs that offer exposure to stocks in the sector and do a comparison between the two funds (see all Technology ETFs here).

ROBO Global Robotics and Automation Index ETF ROBO

This fund seeks to provide a diversified exposure to Robotics stocks and tracks the Robo Global Robotics and Automation Index. It has AUM of $1.18 billion and charges a fee of 95 basis points a year. It has 89 holdings and is well diversified with no individual security holding over 2.6% of the assets.

The fund is heavily inclined towards Industrials and Technology, with 44% and 42% exposure, respectively. The fund’s top three holdings are Aerovironment Inc, Daifuku Co Ltd and Hiwin Technologies Corp with 2.55%, 2.41% and 2.22% allocation, respectively. From a geographical perspective, the fund’s top three allocations are to the United States, Japan and Taiwan, with 41%, 28% and 6% exposure, respectively. The fund has returned 35.9% in a year and 28.22% year to date (as of Sep 8, 2017).

Robotics & Artificial Intelligence ETF BOTZ

This fund seeks to invest in companies that have chances of benefitting from increased demand of robotics and AI. It tracks the Indxx Global Robotics & Artificial Intelligence Thematic Index. It has AUM of $434.3 million and charges a fee of 68 basis points a year. The fund has 30 holdings in its portfolio but has significant concentration risk, with over 67% allocated to the top 10 holdings.

The fund is heavily inclined towards Industrial Machinery, Electronic Equipment & Instruments and Electronic Components, with 30.56%, 11.47% and 10.86% exposure, respectively (as of Jun 30, 2017). The fund’s top three holdings are Keyence Corp, Intuitive Surgical Inc and Mitsubishi Electric Corp with 8.43%, 7.83% and 7.64% allocation, respectively (as of Sep 8, 2017). From a geographical perspective, the fund’s top three allocations are to the Japan, United States and Switzerland, with 46.14%, 22.86% and 9.57% exposure, respectively (as of Jun 30, 2017).  The fund has returned 41.27% in a year and 39.07% year to date (as of Sep 8, 2017).

Bottom Line

Although ROBO is more popular than BOTZ, as evident from its higher AUM, BOTZ may be appealing to some investors owing to its cheaper expense ratio. However, BOTZ has higher international exposure compared to ROBO.

Moreover, ROBO is better diversified than BOTZ, and thus bears less company concentration risk. The performance of BOTZ has been better than ROBO over the past year and also in the year-to-date timeframe. With the growing appeal of the sector and higher technological advancements, both these ETFs are poised to offer great growth potential.

<![CDATA[Robotics ETFs Head to Head (Revised)]]> The impressive prospects of the robotics industry led major fund houses to launch products that provide significant exposure to this sector. Technological advancement and an urge to run businesses in a more efficient manner have played a major role in boosting the demand for robotics. This in turn had a positive impact on securities from the domain as investors are looking to take advantage of the sector’s solid potential.

For an instance, a Bank of America Merrill Lynch report shows that the robotics industry may expand at a robust rate from being worth $10.7 billion in 2014 to $83 billion by 2020. Meanwhile, reducing cost coupled with rapid advancement of technology is likely to reduce prices of robots significantly. This may further boost demand in the industry. According to CEO of Robo Global, Travis Briggs, prices, which dropped nearly 25% from 2010 through 2015, may fall a further 20% in the next five years.

This may be the primary reason why issuers are busy launching robotics focused ETFs. After Robo Global’s launch of Robo Global Robotics&Automation ETF ROBO in 2013, Global X launched Robotics & Artificial Intelligence Thematic ETF BOTZ with an objective to gain from the emerging robotics industry.

These funds give exposure to stocks that operate within the robotic domain. Let’s take a look at these two products and find out the difference between each (see all Technology ETFshere).

Inside ROBO

The fund looks to track the Robo Global Robotics and Automation Index. Holding about 85 stocks in its portfolio, the fund maintains a diversified portfolio with only 2.15% of its assets invested in the top company. Having debuted in 2013, the fund has amassed about $99.6 million in assets so far.

The fund is inclined toward heavy machinery (25%) and electronic components (23%). In terms of country exposure, the fund mostly invests in companies from the U.S. (43%) and Japan (23%). The fund is multi-cap in nature, with a tilt toward smaller capitalization. It has an expense ratio of 0.80% (read: Bubbles Bursting For Technology ETFs?).

Inside BOTZ

The 28-stock fund looks to follow companies that are into the increased application of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI). SMC Corp (8.29%), ABB Ltd-Reg (8.12%) and Keyence Corp (7.69%) are the top three holdings of the fund. Industrial Machinery takes up the first spot with about 30% exposure followed by Electronic Equipment & Instruments (11.6%) and Health Care Equipment (11.24%).

Geographically, Japan takes the top spot with about 46% weight while the U.S. (20.36%) and Switzerland (10.48%) also get a double-digit allocation. Though the fund invests in companies irrespective of their market capitalization, it has a slight tilt toward companies with larger capitalization. It charges 68 bps in fees (read: 3 Thematic ETFs from Global X Hit the Market).

Bottom Line

As a seasoned player in the robotics domain, ROBO has the experience while BOTZ may attract investors’ attention as a comparatively cheaper option. BOTZ’s expense ratio of 0.68% is much lower than that of ROBO. Though both the ETFs have significant exposure to a number of nations, domestic exposure is higher in ROBO compared to BOTZ.

Separately, ROBO bears less company-concentration risks than BOTZ. Though there are a number of technology ETFs available in the market, the Robotics segment is relatively unexplored. Thus both ROBO and BOTZ are poised to offer investors scope for growth.

<![CDATA[Реверс-инжиниринг лазерного датчика расстояния]]> image
Однажды ко мне попал нерабочий лазерный датчик расстояния Keyence LK-G407. Мало того, что он был нерабочий, так его еще и нельзя было использовать без специального управляющего блока. Но ведь у датчика такие интересные характеристики: измерение расстояния с точностью до единиц микрон, и скорость работы — 50 килоизмерений/с. Так что, чтобы запустить его, придется заметно поковыряться в самом датчике, заодно и ценный опыт получить.
