These ac/ac displacement transducers are designed specifically for applications in which the sensor is submerged in fresh water or most other noncorrosive liquids and gases for prolonged periods. These displacement transducers are ruggedly constructed of all stainless steel and are able to withstand harsh underwater environments as found in mining, upstream oilfield, geophysical, and industrial processes.
Model LYU60X features an unguided armature with a stroke range from ±0.5 to ±8 inches; while the LYS60X has an internal spring return and a ±0.5 to ±3 inches stroke range. Both units deliver ±0.5 percent linearity and are built to withstand pressures from 145 psi to 3000 psi. Linearity of ±0.1 and ±0.25 percent are available options on many units.
The LYS60X and LYU60X require separate signal conditioning, and provide optimum performance when powered with between 0.5V and 7V and from 2 to 10KHz, sinusoidal. All units are shipped with traceable calibration certificates. Models LYS and LYU are available now, with pricing starting at $720.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
