ELECTRONICS: The new ACCU-CAL™ 50-LED radiometer from DYMAX Corporation addresses this condition and offers accurate intensity and dosage measurements for LED curing equipmentConsistent light-curing results require periodic monitoring of light energy intensity and dosage levels. The ACCU-CAL™ 50-LED radiometer is simple to operate and offers accurate measurement of curing energy. This radiometer can measure energy levels emitted from lightguides (3mm, 5mm, and 8mm) and LED flood lamps. A spectral sensitivity range of 350 - 450m and intensity measurement from 1mW/cm2 to 40W/cm2 make this unit ideal for measuring LED curing-source energy levels. A specially designed photo-sensor assembly provides repeatable measurements and protection from high temperatures associated with some LED systems on the market. The unit is CE Marked and available globally.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
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.
