SENSORS/ELECTRONICS: Sherborne Sensors’ Series T435 is a single-axis, high-precision, closed-loop, gravity-referenced servo inclinometer family designed for down-hole logging applications or for use in areas where space is at a premium. With a form factor measuring only 1.6 inch (40.6 mm) high and less than 1.46 inch (37 mm) in diameter, sensors can be stacked for simultaneous X and Y measurement of tilt angles. Models are available in ranges from ±3 to ±90 degrees. Series T435 offer a high-level dc output signal, proportional to the sine of the available angle of tilt. Units are fully self-contained and able to connect to a dc power source, and readout or control device for a complete operating system. The T435 series are also extremely rugged and can withstand a 1,500g shock event. Solder pin terminations are standard.
Engineers throughout the US are in the midst of celebrating Engineers Week. But the celebration extends beyond the country’s borders, and even beyond the Earth itself; the crew of the International Space Station joined the festivities, too!
Many engineering professionals have come to view CAD as something of a commodity, not an area where much innovation can be expected. CAD tools continue to get better, however, with software delivering powerful capabilities for the evolving product design process.
