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.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
