SENSORS: TURCK’s complete line of 2 and 3-wire DC ArmorGuardTM+ stainless-steel front face inductive sensors includes 8, 12, 18 and 30 mm barrel diameters with 1.5 to 10 mm achievable sensing distances. The sensors feature one-piece construction and IP 68 and IP 68K ratings, making them particularly suitable for food and beverage industry applications requiring frequent washdowns. Select sensors are available with TURCK’s proprietary WeldGuardTM protective sensing face material, which resists weld slag build-up and abrasion often found in robotic welding applications, including those in the automotive industry. The sensors come equipped with an M12 quick disconnect connection or with potted-in 2m cable for ease of installation on the plant floor.
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].”
