Provides microprocessor reliability in a compact design
For use in a variety of liquids, including foods, beverages, chemicals, oils, water, as well as slurries and some solids, Madison Co. has added the U3M Ultrasonic "Mini Probe" to its full range of ultrasonic level sensors. The U3M has a compact design that extends just over 2 inches in height above the tank or drum surface and has an operating range of 4 inches to 6 ft. The U3M has a PVC housing that allows for an operating temperature range of -40 to 60C that can be increased to as high as 125C with an optional CPVC or Kynar housing. The U3M's microprocessor-based circuits provide a temperature-compensated signal for improved accuracy and the ability to filter false echoes produced by peripheral obstructions. On-board push buttons allow for calibration without the need for software and computers. Optional RS485 communications are available for computer interfacing and for networking up to 128 sensors. The "Mini Probe" has a self-cleaning sensor face and will automatically adjust power and sensitivity to any environment. Madison Co. http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-535
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
