This ice sensor is different in that it has no moving parts and sees the ice rather than gauging its temperature. The slanted vertical design allow for non-ice precipitation to run off and leave it free to sense frozen moisture buildup. The sensitivity can also be adjusted to detect human breath or monitor levels in a freezer.
The Ice Meister was originally designed for aerospace, but has been re-appropriated for industry and home use. Some applications include industrial, commercial and household refrigerators, sprinkler controls, windpower farms, heliports and roadway signs. The Ice Meister starts at $750 and varies based on configurations.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
