ELECTRONICS: OMEGA ENGINEERING’s new MWTC Series of Wireless Thermocouple Connectors are available in standard J, K, T, E, R, S, B, C, or N type calibration. Each battery powered, compact, patented connector transmits temperature readings, signal strength and battery status back to a mating USB receiver up to 90 m (300′) away. All readings are displayed on your PC screen in real time using the free provided software. Software functions include data logging and chart recording. The low power operation and sleep mode provides long battery life. Models are FCC, Industry Canada and CE Certified. A free thermocouple sensor and long life battery is included with each connector. Perfect for labs and industrial automation.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
