The XRM Series of 50W modular high-voltage power supplies are for analytical X-ray applications. An integral filament supply provides regulated dc current as well as local and remote emission control. The supplies are in a 6.3 X 3.937 X 10-inch package and are available in four models with output voltages from 25 to 65 kV, and up to 2 mA. The supplies are voltage- and current-programmable and feature output inhibit control via a TTL signal.

For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
