MOTION CONTROL:NetGain Controls Inc. has announced the availability of a high powered, liquid cooled controller for series wound dc motors commonly used in electric vehicles. Deliveries are scheduled to begin immediately. This product is the ideal controller for dc powered electric vehicles.Some of this product’s features include: CANbus, super-silent operation, 1400+ torque producing amps, high-voltage capabilities, and expandability to future features through a unique software update process. The controller includes top-mount terminals for high-power connections. Low-voltage connections use automotive style connectors for a simple installation and reliable, OEM-quality operation. Many processes, such as automatic pre-charging, happen behind the scenes to make the controller operation as simple as possible.
NetGain Controls has kept safety a top priority throughout the engineering process of this product. Multiple microprocessors verify correct operation throughout the system, and shut it down if anything isn’t working properly.
Add-on features like high-quality data logging, user-interface display, and speed sensor monitoring are also available. This announcement is part of a growing list of quality products for the “green” community from NetGain Controls Inc.
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.

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.
