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.
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
