SENSORS: The Columbia Model DI-10-DFD-IR Inclinometer System is particularly useful in construction and shipbuilding. It is a unique differential tilt measuring device which allows matching the slope of two remotely located surfaces. The readout can be set to indicate the absolute tilt of either sensor or the differential angle between them. These extremely rugged inclinometers offer superior force balance technology and high resolution. The display is 4½ digit, 7 segment 0.4 inches high readout indicating + 10.000 degrees full scale. It has switch select for either sensor output or differential mode. The display blanks if either one or both sensors are not connected. Customized versions of these sensors are available from the factory.
The Sensors provided with this system feature aluminum case material and weigh 12oz. (340gm). They are 3.64 x 2.10 x 1.69 inches. Operating temperature ranges from -20 to +75C and their shock survival is 50G RMS.
Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
