ELECTRONICS: TRI-TRONICS CO. INC. has introduced the first “True Color Sensor” designed to perform as well as an instrument or a spectrometer. The new SMARTEYE® ColorWiseTM Sensor will solve the most difficult color applications at higher speeds than color cameras or other sensors and is ideal for intricate color sorting or inspection problems found in today’s high speed packaging and production lines.
A unique four-channel monitor provides users with a continual visual confirmation of performance. With a choice in speed versus resolution, the performance of the sensor is controlled by the operator, providing a wider range of application solutions.
Features and benefits include: Low cost color solution vs. cameras, other sensors or spectrometers; solves difficult shade-to-shade or color-to color applications; selectable outputs, timers, resolution, speed, etc. to fit any/all applications; four-channel monitor for at-a-glance performance feedback; four digital outputs and three analog outputs; selectable speed versus Resolution; selectable color versus Color + Intensity and captures color from HMI, PLC or remote button.
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.
