SENSORS: All Sensors Corp.’s ½ inch H2O Full Scale Millivolt Output Pressure Sensor is the first ½ inch H2O Millivolt Output Pressure Sensor released to the market. Obtaining a ½ inch measurement from a millivolt device has become possible utilizing proprietary All Sensors’ CoBeam²TM Technology. The ½-inch device offers 2x the sensitivity of the 1 inch H2O device which provides higher signal to noise for the most demanding low-pressure applications. This millivolt pressure sensor offers accurate, low-pressure measurements at a more affordable price. The entire ½- to 30-inch H2O pressure sensor family is RoHS-compliant. The sensors are offered in a pc board mountable package with two pressure ports. Seven pressure ranges are available from ½ inch H2O full scale to 30 inch H2O full scale. They are available with a millivolt output proportional to either gage or differential pressure. Output offset errors are significantly reduced by electrical cross coupling compensation employed within the sensor.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.
Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
