ELECTRONICS: Vectron International’sPX-420 crystal oscillator is able to withstand continuous operating temperatures of up to 250C, the product is ideal for harsh environment applications, including oil and gas downhole operations.With the PX-420, Vectron successfully combines its advanced quartz resonator design for outstanding frequency stability with silicon on insulator (SOI) technology to meet the high-reliability requirements demanded by these harsh environment applications. For the first time, design engineers have a solution for applications requiring continuous, high-reliability operation at temperatures ranging from -55 to 250C. Vectron’s PX-420 crystal oscillator offers the widest temperature range and best frequency tolerance currently available for frequency control oscillators in the market. The unique compliant quartz resonator mounting scheme also provides high shock and vibration resistance.
Specific features of the PX-420 include:
Ultra high continuous operating temperature (-55 to 250C)
Special doubly rotated quartz resonator and electrode metallization for outstanding frequency stability
Silicon on insulator (SOI) technology for high reliability requirement in harsh environments
± 100ppm frequency stability over the entire operating temperature range
Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
