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.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.
Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
