New Oxygen Clean Series Electronic Valves (O-E Series) from Clippard are two- or three-way pneumatic control valves designed for use in oxygen environments or other applications sensitive to contamination. Based on Clippard's EV valves, which feature a patented valving system, the new O-E Series is manufactured, cleaned and tested for use in oxygen-enriched environments. And for the sake of low particulate generation in the field, it features only one moving part — a flexing armature that opens and closes the valve without the particulate potentially generated by sliding parts. Clippard rates the flexing armature for up to billion cycles.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
