The Telematic TP48 surge protector is for direct mounting to virtually any two-wire transmitter via any unused conduit entry on the transmitter and is grounded to the transmitter casting. In operation the TP48 ensures that the transmitter electronics are not exposed to damaging surges between lines or between lines and the casing. The surge protector protects without interfering with normal operations, passing ac or dc signals without attenuation while at the same time diverting surge currents safely to ground.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
