Balluff's Micropulse Generation 7 Linear Position Transducer
is a linear transducer for the measurement of absolute position. A magnet
defines the position to be measured on a waveguide. The waveguide can have a
length between 25 and 7600 mm. The measurement is based on the magnetostrictive
effect. Measuring ranges can be adjusted. Positions can be measured with a
resolution of a few Âµm. Positions of up to two magnets can be detected and put
out on two outputs. The transducer is a robust measurement device against
magnetic fields, vibrations or EMC fields in industrial environments. The
position measurement resolution is very high and the position signal can be put
out on an analog interface with voltage or current outputs. The position
detection update rate can be up to 4 kHz. Different stroke lengths can be used
- as long as 300 inches. Diagnosis functions via error signal outputs and LEDs
are also available.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
