Data Translation's MEASURpointTM is a highly accurate, multipurpose
single instrument solution for measuring any combination of RTD, thermocouple,
and voltage ranges from 300 ยตV to 400V.
Up to forty-eight configurable channels allow the ultimate flexibility
with voltage, thermocouple, and RTD inputs. MEASURpoint incorporates
proprietary ISO-ChannelTM technology to eliminate any common mode noise and ground loop problem
in any environmental conditions. USB or Ethernet (LXI Class C compliant)
versions are available. MEASURpointTM is the first instrument of its kind that allows the user to
simultaneously correlate temperature and voltage measurements. A broad array of
applications including Li-ion and fuel cell battery measurement, hybrid
electric vehicle battery performance, thermal battery management, and portable
equipment measurement are now simplified. Proprietary ISO-ChannelTM design offers 1000V galvanic isolation channel
to channel and to the host computer to protect signal integrity in any
environmental condition making measurements virtually indestructible. Common mode noise and ground loop problems
are eliminated. In addition, up to forty-eight configurable input
channels in groupings of eight voltage, thermocouple, and RTD inputs offer
ultimate flexibility to the user.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
