ELECTRONICS: The DPC 2000 from E Instruments is a Documenting Process Calibrator with the highest accuracy in its class of up to 0.015 percent of reading. The DPC 2000 Measures and Simulates dc voltage, dc current, 13 types of thermocouples, 13 Types of RTDs, frequency, loop supply (24V) and pressure, and source pulse trains.
In addition, theDPC 2000 stores up to 21 data points per instrument and up to 50 instruments in non-volatile memory. Then the data can be uploaded to a PC for analysis with Microsoft Excel® or a full database program.
Features of the New DPC 2000 include:
dc voltage read & source: 0 to 20V, Current: 0 to 24mA; 1KΩ
Resistance - Read: 0 to 4KΩ, Source: 5 to 4KΩ
Frequency - Read/Source: 1 to 1KHz, 1 to 10KHz
Pulse: 1 to 30K, 2 CPM to 10KHz
Built-in 24V Loop Supply can drive 4-20mA loops up to 1KΩ
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.
Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
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.
