Transducers Direct LLC continues to
expand its TDH
pressure transducer line with the addition of two new vacuum transducers. With
a list price starting at $89, the TDH31 and TDH41 are low-cost vacuum and compound
range transducers for use in any OEM or retrofitting application. Both are
built with a 316 stainless-steel case that enables them to be used in harsh,
wet environments such as food and beverage components. The TDH31 has an
accuracy range of 1 percent and a 9.4 mini DIN, or the optional 3-pin Packard connection
while the TDH41 has a higher accuracy range that is better than 0.4 percent and
is available with either the 9.4 mini DIN, 3-pin Packard connection or the
widely used M12 connection. Each model is vacuum to 85 psig. Additional options
and ranges are available.
new units are available for immediate delivery. Typical application areas

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 £100 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.
