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.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team ฃ100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
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.
