With a wide dynamic range of 0 to 700 kN, the Kistler Type 9393A is designed
to measure both dynamic and quasi-static forces. The sensor is offered in three
calibrated measurement ranges of 0-100, 0-10 and 0-1 percent. The compact
design of the Kistler Type 9393A features a diameter of 145 mm and a height of
190 mm with flange connections on both ends, providing greater flexibility for
easy mechanical adaptation within various machinery environments. The Type
9393A is also rotationally symmetrical in shape with a center hole, allowing
for the mounting of connecting rods or for installation on a press plunger.
Units are factory preloaded, shipped as a standard calibrated unit and are
ready-to-mount for immediate use, with supplied centering rings for necessary
axial adjustments. In addition, the Kistler Type 9393A is available with
optional calibration by the Swiss Calibration Service (SCS).
As a piezoelectric sensor, the Kistler Type 9393A is capable
of high-repeatability precision measurements over a dynamic range, allowing the
same press force sensor to be used within a variety of applications when paired
with a suitable amplifier, such as the ICAM Type 5073A. When using the
Kistler Type 9393A piezoelectric force sensor at a lower measurement range, an
overload protection factor of up to 100 is provided, eliminating the need for
other protective measures.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
