SENSORS: E-Instrument’sTCS 1200 is a highly accurate and portable dry block calibrator featuring a temperature range up to 1200C. It is designed to verify and calibrate sensors, thermometers, and process transmitters both in the field and in the laboratory. It can also be used as a black body source for infrared thermometers.
Features of the TCS 1200 include the following:
Temperature range from 150C to 1200C
Stability of ±0.2C at 1100C
Radial uniformity of ±0.2C at 1100C
Heating speed of 100C to 1100C in 20 minutes
Cooling speed of 1100C to 800C in 50 minutes
Stabilization time of 15 minutes
Four hole 80mm deep metal block insert
Optional Black Body Insert for infrared thermometers
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
