ELECTRONICS: Bulletin 871TS inductive proximity sensors were designed to withstand high pressure washdown applications in the food and beverage industry. These sensors also offer a high resistance to corrosion caused by cleansing and exposure to disinfecting agents.The switch body consists of a PPS (FDA Certified) plastic face and threaded stainless steel 316L barrel. These switches meet NEMA 1, 2, 3, 3R, 4, 4X, 6, 6P, 12, 13 and IP67, IP68 and IP69K enclosure standards.
Features include: four-wire operation (complementary normally open and normallly closed outputs); gold-plated 4-pin micro quickdisconnect; 10-30V dc; standard and extended sensing range versions, IP67, IP68 and IP69K enclosure ratings; stainless-steel 316L barrel; FDA Certified, PPS sensing face; extended temperature rating (-40 to 80C (-40 to 176F)); short circuit, false pulse, reverse polarity, overload and transient noise protection; and cULus Listed and CE Marked for all applicable directives.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
