Typically used in driver monitoring applications, helicopter rotor systems and tire pressure monitoring systems where the switches are mounted in each wheel. The G-Force sensor helps manage power consumption, switching on the power of the main pressure sensing circuit when relevant motion is detected.
Tested for more than 10M operations, AEC’s G-force switches are highly reliable with proven failure rates of less than 1ppm. The main contact surfaces are gold, hermetically sealed with a dry high pressure gas and are of robust automotive grade. Standard G-Force ranges from 2.0g and upwards with customized ranges available upon request. Contact resistance is typically less than 2Ω and 50Ω maximum at 6g throughout the life of the product. These parts are an ideal addition to low power circuits. Contact ratings up to 50m A at 12V dc provide reliable switching in systems using today’s microcontrollers at their core.
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.
