Meggitt Sensing Systems' Endevco model 7287 is a low mass piezoresistive
accelerometer weighing less than one gram. Designed for the cost-effective
measurement of long duration transient shocks, such as those found in product
and packaging drop testing, shipping container shock testing, jack hammer testing
and high-g destructive testing applications.
With a measurement range of 2,000 g, 200 mV
full scale output and a high resonance frequency of more than 20,000 Hz, the
Endevco model 7287 utilizes a MEMS sensing element incorporating integral
mechanical stops and features a small, lightweight, easy-to-mount package for
minimal mass loading of the test structure. This monolithic sensor design
offers ruggedness, stability and reliability with broad frequency response from
dc to 4,000 Hz at Â±5 percent, with non-linearity of <1 percent and
ruggedness to 10,000 g shock. The Endevco model 7287 has also minimum damping,
thereby producing no phase shift over the useful frequency range.
The design of the Endevco model 7287 has
drawn upon decades of proven experience in manufacturing these types of sensors
for the automotive crash test market, with successful technology that has now
been carried over into the general test and measurement realm. As a result, the
model 7287 ensures critical data is recorded upon demand at very low cost.
Units are available with adhesive mounting or integral bracket for screw
mounting and are supplied with a strong PVC jacketed cable in standard lengths.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
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.
