ELECTRONICS: Dietz Models 170D and 171D Low Differential Pressure Switches are now manufactured exclusively by World Magnetics. These heavy-duty designs are ideal for use in construction equipment, marine and rail transportation applications, mining equipment, and a wide range of challenging industrial process applications. Dietz switches combine extremely low pressure actuation and rugged construction to deliver precise and repeatable performance in harsh environments. A highly resistant epoxy finish provides protection where corrosive fumes or acids are present, such as in chemical plants, plating rooms, and sewage treatment plants. The Dietz Model 171D is vibration resistant, and conforms to MIL-STD-167-1 and MIL-STD-901-D.
A number of models with factory set actuation points ranging from 0.05 inch H2O (Model 171D) to 40.0 inch H2O are available.
In addition, World Magnetics manufactures a variety of Dietz pressure switches with actuation points that range from 0.7 inch H2O to 415.6 inch H2O. All feature heavy-duty steel, brass, or aluminum housings and mountings for reliable performance in extreme environments. The product line also includes Dietz airflow switches designed to guard against equipment damage from blower failure or air passage obstruction.
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.
