Bagaimana Virus Stuxnet Menyerang System PLC dan Cara Mengatasinya.

Beberapa waktu lalu kita pernah digegerkan dengan virus Stuxnet. Virus ini sangat berbahaya karena menyerang sistem database yang berada di CPU PLC, yaitu DB890 dan DB8062.

Bagaimana virus tersebut bereaksi dan menyerang PLC, silahkan simak video dibawah ini:

Dengan menyimak video diatas, anda akan menyadari dan membayangkan bagaimana jika virus ini menyerang sistem plc sekala besar di industri bahkan di reaktor nuklir.... Ini bisa menjadi hal yang sangat berbahaya... karena PLC menjadi tidak terkontrol/Ngaco...!

In the Symantec demo example = CPU S7-315 2DP (6ES7 315-2AF03-0AB0) + with Digital outputs modul, with simple program = main organization block OB1 with simple code (1 timer and 1 output).
We see that the virus Stuxnet kills the simple control system immediately at startup!
The virus can destroy any control system S7 !?
It does not check the hardware configuration and program.
It starts immediately at startup.
And all that is written about the int…

Introduction to RS485

RS232, RS422, RS423 and RS485 are serial communication methods for computers and devices. RS232 is without doubt the best known interface, because this serial interface is implemented on almost all computers available today. But some of the other interfaces are certainly interesting because they can be used in situations where RS232 is not appropriate. We will concentrate on the RS485 interface here.
RS232 is an interface to connect one DTE, data terminal equipment to one DCE, data communication equipment at a maximum speed of 20 kbps with a maximum cable length of 50 feet. This was sufficient in the old days where almost all computer equipment were connected using modems, but soon after people started to look for interfaces capable of one or more of the following:
Connect DTE's directly without the need of modems Connect several DTE's in a network structure Ability to communicate over longer distances Ability to communicate at faster communication rates RS485 is the most ver…

Top Ten Engineering Universities of The World.

With average starting salaries ranging from US$52,000 to US$83,000 in 2009, Engineering is a profession that is sure to come to mind when deciding your career, or for that matter, your child's. On the other hand, if you are the building-something-new-everyday type, you still need to choose the right university to equip yourself with the right set of skills, so that, one day you can build that mega-machine that you dream of. Today we take a look at the top 10 Engineering Universities of the world so that when you are ready for Engineering, you can make the right move.


Mechatronics is the combination of Mechanical engineering, Electronic engineering, Computer engineering, Software engineering, Control engineering, and Systems Design engineering in order to design and manufacture useful products.[1][2] Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering, that is to say it rejects splitting engineering into separate disciplines. Originally, mechatronics just included the combination between mechanics and electronics, hence the word is only a portmanteau of mechanics and electronics; however, as technical systems has become more and more complex the word has been "updated" during recent years to include more technical areas.
French standard NF E 01-010 gives the following definition: “approach aiming at the synergistic integration of mechanics, electronics, control theory, and computer science within product design and manufacturing, in order to improve and/or optimize its functionality".

Mechatronics is a dynamic field tha…
