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 Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
