Alternative fuels are no longer a novelty but a bona fide alternative to gasoline and diesel fuels. These fuel options are being adopted by municipalities and other governmental agencies as an option for fleet vehicles such as cars, buses, truck and other service vehicles such as fork lifts.
Typical applications would include monitoring and measuring low pressure for fuel rail, high pressure for tank pressure, or combined pressure and temperature. The sensors are utilized to optimize fuel metering and control combustion, improving emissions and engine performance. The OEM will design in a Kavlico fuel rail sensor to measure the absolute pressure of the fuel at the inlet of the injectors.
Kavlico’s robustly designed stainless-steel LPG & CNG sensors utilize a thin film (TiON) sense element and are available in pressure ranges up to 250 BarG. Operating on 5V dc, the sensors provide a linear amplified analog output of 0.5 to 4.5V dc proportional to pressure. Operating temperature range is -40 to 140C across the full operating range. The lightweight sensor can be configured with a variety of electrical and process connections to meet each OEM’s application specific requirement.
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
