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.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
