Weighing 120 mg
and operating in temperatures of up to +150C, the Endevco model 12M series
features the incorporation of Meggitt's Piezite-type P-8 bimorph sensing element, operating in bender mode.
This material offers low base strain sensitivity, low pyroelectric output and extremely
high charge output versus size. Advanced manufacturing techniques and materials R&D have propelled Meggitt
forward as an industry innovator in these types of piezoelectric sensing
technologies. As a result, models within the Endevco 12M series are routinely
incorporated into implantable medical device designs to support such critical
applications as patient activity indicators, cardiac pacemaker and
defibrillator rate response, implanted pain management device monitoring, blood
pressure monitoring, blood glucose monitoring, artificial joint pressure
measurements and external and implanted drug therapy systems.
The amount of plastic clogging the ocean continues to grow. Some startling, not-so-good news has come out recently about the roles plastic is playing in the ocean, as well as more heartening news about efforts to collect and reuse it.
Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
