Model 657 Super Cube position sensor is for severe environments. The 5/8-inch(3) sensor is available with standard resistance values ranging from 50(omega) to 25 k(omega) and up to 1-million shaft revolutions. Depending on the application, sensors can be provided with or without mechanical stops and with electrical travel to 320 degrees. Options include special shafts and bushings, custom wire harnesses in lieu of wire terminals, special ink systems, and high-temperature versions. Model 657 features a multi-array, conductive-plastic screen process, and laser trimming to confirm a 2% output signal.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
