ELECTRONICS: ITT Interconnect Solutions has developed a 19-way commercial Pogo pin connector and cable assembly that meet stringent electrical and mechanical specifications of demanding environments. Rated to IP55 specifications, the 19-way connector and cable assembly are ideal for use in medical test and diagnostic imaging equipment, aircraft electronics, instrumentation and industrial equipment.The harsh environment, 19-way commercial Pogo pin connector features stainless steel shells, snap-on breakaway coupling and an interfacial seal. The connector’s mating system is both tactile and audible with an ergonomic grip for easier handling. The cable assembly includes bulkhead, front mount, receptacle, plug with Rj45 and in-line plug options.
Depending on cable and length, typical pricing for the 19-way Pogo pin connector and cable assembly ranges from $100 to $200, open ended assembly. Lead time is from 10 to 12 weeks.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors. Robots we see on the big screen in recent years include Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Eddie Murphy. Top star of the era, Will Smith, takes a spin as a robot investigator in I, Robot. Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
