DCTH Series compact short stroke LVDTs from RDP Electrosense are ideal for use in specialty machines,
industrial control systems, material testing, civil/structural engineering, and general purpose testing/instrumentation. They provide excellent linearity (with options to 0.1 percent max) and repeatability, and are specifically designed for easy interface with control systems and digital/analog conversions. This unit operates from commonly available dc power supplies of 20 to 24V single ended or +10 to +20V dual dc output. Units require no additional signal conditioning. The DCTH offers four measuring ranges up to 0.8 inches (20 mm) and selectable voltage output of 0 to 10V uni-polar or +5V bipolar all in a short body length. The DCTH Series LVDTs are available in spring operation and free, unguided armature versions. RDP Electrosense http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-537
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
