efector inc. introduces the new LR Series level
sensor for monitoring liquid level in tanks for applications that include parts
cleaning, coolant monitoring, water treatment and hydraulic power units. The modular system consists of a
compact, stainless-steel sensor housing with numeric display and pushbutton setup,
a cut-to-length stainless-steel measuring probe that easily attaches to the
sensor housing, and an M12 cordset for power and outputs.
LR level sensor can detect a variety of liquids that include water and water-based
media such as coolants, cleaning agents and paint. For oil and low-dielectric
fluid applications, ifm offers a coaxial tube that slips over the measuring
probe to provide reliable level sensing. With no moving parts, the
maintenance-free level sensor does not need routine cleanings and offers a long
ifm offers measuring probe lengths up to 63 inch for deep tank
applications. Parameters such as liquid type, setpoint and resetpoint are
established using the menu-driven display. The sensor does not have to be installed in the process to
set the parameters. Level readings can be displayed in inches or centimeters on
the sensor's four-digit display. Bright LEDs indicate
the switching or analog output.
The LR sensor's measuring principle is echo time-of-flight
using guided wave radar technology to detect liquid level. This technology enables a strong
signal strength and the ability to ignore build up.
The Micro dc units are available
with two or four switch points and a scalable analog output. Starting list
price for a complete system is less than $500.
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
