ELECTRONICS: ITT Interconnect Solutions offers a comprehensive range of zero insertion force (ZIF) connectors for medical diagnostic and imaging equipment. Utilizing a landed contact system, there is no connector engagement force and the only wear on the contacts occurs as they are pressed together and lightly wiped past each other during the camming and locking operation.
ITT’s ZIF plug and receptacle devices include the DL Series and DLD Series thermoplastic connectors; DLM Series, DL4 Series and DLP136-272 Series aluminum connectors; DLP 408 Series zinc alloy connector; and QLC zinc connector. Available in contact arrangements ranging from 60 to 2,496, the connectors feature gold-plated copper alloy contact material and cost as much as 25 percent less per mated line than singular high-density rack-and-panel connectors.
Typical pricing for ITT’s line of ZIF connectors ranges from $6 to $1,500 each in minimum order quantities of five pieces. Lead time is from six to 14 weeks.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
