Series Photoelectric Sensors sense distances of up to 30m (98 ft), with
greater signal strength to reliably "see" through more contaminants that
collect on the sensor lens. The new light spot also facilitates easier
alignment, even to small objects or reflectors. The ML100 series is cULus
The ML100 provides
automatic crosstalk protection, meaning that two ML100 sensors can be used
together without any mounting restrictions. They are also highly immune to
ambient light, even in environments using high frequency energy-saving
fluorescent lights. A broader temperature rating (-30 to 60C; -22 to 140F) means
the ML100 provides reliable operation in bothlower temperature and higher temperature environments, including
cold storage areas.
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.
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.
