Siemens Automotive has under development a second-generation, common rail system for high-pressure diesel fuel injections. The technology has as its goal the reduction of nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions and the noisy operation of diesels. High-pressure fuel injection resulting from the common rail (CR) technology is said to be a key to better diesel spray atomization, improved fuel/air mixing, and more efficient combustion of fuel in engine cylinders. The system incorporates piezohydraulic valve technology to precisely regulate the high-pressure injection of the fuel. The modular design incorporates the rail, valves, fuel injectors, sensors, and actuators into a single package that, according to Klaus Eggers, Siemens project leader for diesel systems, "will provide design flexibility and cost savings." Siemens engineers say piezohydraulic valves react up to four times faster than solenoids currently used, responding to voltage pulses within 0.1 msec. FAX (248) 253-2998.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
There is a new cooperation between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to explore the potential alignment of their two architecture efforts: the Reference Architecture Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA).
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Design teams are operating in a business environment that increasingly requires them to collaborate and share data across extended teams, multiple organizations, and widespread locations. Autodesk’s customers are looking for a solution that eliminates project bottlenecks, such as the time-consuming and error-ridden process of shuttling design reviews and revisions back and forth among team members.
