ELECTRONICS: Honeywell Sensing and Control has added a new video to its library of Dr. Larry informational videos on its website. The new video on MICRO SWITCHTM technology demonstrates how basic switches work, and what to look for in a high-quality electromechanical switch.
“Honeywell owns MICRO SWITCHTM technology and has been working with our customers who design it into thousands of applications for over 75 years,” said
Dr. Larry Goldstein, chief technology officer of Honeywell Sensing and Control. “It’s important to speak engineer-to-engineer and explain the key aspects of deploying this technology.”
MICRO SWITCHTM products have provided generations of manufacturers and design engineers superior operating characteristics, long mechanical life, and absolute dependability in closing and opening electrical circuits. The nine-minute video allows engineers worldwide to learn about basic switches, potential applications of the technology, and what to look for when designing basic switches into applications. Viewers may also pose questions to Dr. Larry directly from the site.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
