SENSORS: Pepperl+Fuchs Dura-VueTM MLV12 Series Photoelectric Sensors are now available in diffuse mode with background evaluation. Dura-VueTM background evaluation sensors provide a sensing range from 50 to 150 mm, with a 4 mm light spot that enables the sensors to detect even the smallest targets. They are engineered to detect all targets regardless of color or shape, making them well-suited for use in material handling and packaging applications. Dura-VueTM series sensors feature a harsh-duty IP67 rated metal-framed housing with swivel connector and deliver reliable operation in temperatures as low as -40F. Users will also benefit from highly visible front and rear LED status indicators, cross-talk protection and high immunity to ambient light.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
