OMEGA Engineering introduces its new OS4000 series of industrial high speed fiber optic infrared transmitters with the
capability to measure temperature from 200 up to 1600C (392 to 2912F) using
three standard optical fields of view and three standard fiber optic cable
lengths. This CE compliant product has a very fast response time of one
millisecond and adjustable Emissivity from .05 to .99. Other standard features
include built in laser sighting for lens probe positioning, linear analog
output (1mV/ Deg, 0/5V dc, 0/10V dc, or 4-20mA), high and low alarm outputs,
fiber optic gain adjust, maximum & minimum temperature measurement, RS232
interface, and a Windows based PC interface software to allow changing response
time, high and low alarm set points, and data logging. Transmitter mounting
bracket and mounting nuts are included. Water cool jacket, vacuum bushing, air
purge collar and mounting bracket for the fiber optic lens probe are all
optional accessories. Optional two relays with contact closure outputs and
custom optical field of views and temperature ranges are available. Perfect for
semiconductor, petrochemical, steel, and plastic industries.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
