FLUID POWER: The new Ashcroft® GC35 digital pressure sensor provides remote signaling, local reading and pressure control, all in one small, rugged design. Equipped with a 4-20 mA analog output, four digit LED display and programmable switch contacts, this multi-function instrument performs the functions of a transducer, digital indicator and pressure switch. The GC35 is offered in ranges from 0/50 through 0/7500 psig and compound ranges to 300 psi, and is available with either a back or bottom-located pressure connection. Unique qualities include a nickel plated cast aluminum housing and a brilliant, tri-color “GloBandTM” to provide a 360 degree visual indication of switch status. Other standard features include min/max recall and adjustable analog scaling along with RoHS and CE compliance.
There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
