These sensors can measure gases from 0 to 50 L/min to 0 to 500 L/min, and a patented thermal mass flow sensor design promises repeatable results, with less zero drift and fast response and linear outputs. The aluminum sensors come with NPT ports, and have an analog output for remote data monitoring. They are made for many industrial, commercial, laboratory and OEM applications like furnace flow control, online gas blending, regulation of sample gas streams and precise gas injection systems.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
