SENSORS: Servoflo Corp. introduces rugged OEM pressure sensors from MicroSensor of China which are designed for rugged, industrial applications. Various pressure ranges up to 100 MPa are available, in either gauge, absolute or differential versions. Non-corrosive, isolated construction and stainless steel packages for various media make MicroSensor OEM pressure sensors excellent for embedded applications where ruggedness, anti-corrosiveness, and exposure to media is important.
The model numbers for this line include the MPM280, MPM281, MPM283 and MDM290. These industrial pressure sensors have an unamplified, linear millivolt output which includes temperature compensation. Typical accuracies are 0.3 percent of full-scale. Using an oil-filled piezoresistive pressure sensor with a stainless steel diaphragm, the MicroSensor OEM pressure sensor line is designed for durability in applications such as petroleum refineries, wastewater treatment, industrial HVAC, refrigerants, liquid level measurement and more.
General pricing for 100 pieces is $25 each for the MPM280, $26-$31 each for MPM281 depending on the pressure range, $27 each for the MPM283, and $35 each for the MDM290.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
