FLUID POWER: Beswick Engineering’s miniature three-stage diaphragm high pressure regulator “PRD3HP” has been selected as a 2009 Design News Golden Mousetrap - Best Product Finalist! An unparalleled combination of size and performance in a high pressure regulator, the PRD3HP is capable of handling inlet pressures up to 3,000 psi, weighs approximately 79 gm in brass and is about 1 inch in diameter. It sets an industry standard for both miniaturization and light weight with its compact design. It accurately reduces inlet pressures as high as 3,000 psi down to an outlet pressure range of 0-30 psi and is especially suited to low pressure regulation such as ½ psi with minimal droop or rise, even with wide swings in inlet pressure. The PRD3HP eliminates the need for two pressure regulators (one to reduce the high pressure to an intermediate pressure and a second pressure regulator to reduce the intermediate pressure to the low pressure.)The Beswick three-stage diaphragm regulator is an excellent choice if the inlet pressure will decay over time such as with hydrogen storage tanks commonly used in hydrogen fuel cell applications. Applications include hydrogen fuel cells, medical equipment, instruments, laboratory equipment, ink jet print engines and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
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.
