This new series of RMS current transducers offer accuracy over a 20Hz-2KHz range. Available in 14 current ranges from 2A to 250A, they have an accuracy of 0.25 percent over a temperature range of -40 to 85C (-40 to 185F). They also have a wide voltage power range from 12V to 32V, and a current signal from 4mAdc to 20mAdc. They protect against reverse polarity and overload currents of up to 500A, plus a load resistance range from 0 to 300. They have an epoxy coating on the internal circuitry for insulation and protection from moisture and contaminants. They come built into a molded plastic, 94V-O flammability-rated case. Storage temperature is -55 to 125C (-67 to 257F)They also come with a five-terminal barrier and a 0.75-inch pass-through hole. A six-pin connector and nine-pin D-Sub connector are also available.
Wal-Mart will hold its second Made in the USA Open Call July 7-8, at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. The event will be a repeat effort by the world’s biggest seller of consumer goods to increase the amount of US-made products it sells in Wal-Mart stores, in Sam’s Club members-only wholesale outlets, and on walmart.com.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
