SENSORS: The PX309 Series pressure transducers from OMEGA employ the latest aerospace silicon technology and offer a choice of absolute pressures from 5 to 300 psi, gage pressures from 1 to 10,000 psi and three output ranges, 0 to 100 mV, 0 to 5V dc and 4 to 20 mA, which makes them compatible with most process-control equipment. All stainless-steel construction provides the durability needed for industrial applications. The transducers use the latest semiconductor sensor technology. Pressure ranges 50 psi and below plus all absolute pressure ranges use a high stability semiconductor pressure sensor isolated via a fluid-filled, stainless-steel diaphragm system. Pressure ranges 100 psi and above use high-accuracy silicon strain gages molecularly bonded to a stainless-steel diaphragm. Both systems provide a rugged sensor with high accuracy and excellent long-term stability. Three connection styles are available: 1.5 m (5 ft) cable, mini DIN (mating connector included) and military-style twist-lock. All models are RoHS and CE compliant. Prices start at $175.
Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
