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
include hydraulic and pneumatic systems, food and beverage units, refrigeration
systems, pumps and compressors, energy and water management, construction and
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
