ELECTRONICS:Dytran Instruments Inc.’s model 3092C is a high temperature, piezoelectric charge output accelerometer. Designed for use in vibration studies in high temperature environments, this unit is capable of operating in temperature ranges of -60 to 900F (-51 to 482C).
Model 3092C has a nominal sensitivity of 5 pC/g and an upper frequency range of 5,000 Hz. The 3092C features a 10-32 radial connector, a 10-32 mounting hole, stainless steel construction and a hermetic seal.
The 3092C mates with an all new hardline cable assembly, model 6894AXX.
Potential applications include turbine engine vibration monitoring, vibration studies of automotive engine and exhaust systems, and general purpose vibration measurements under ultra high temperature conditions.

Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
