detect both the rotational direction and rpm speed of gear wheels in gearboxes
and engines at up to 20,000 pulses, the Baumer MTRM
16 magnetic hall sensor is IP68-rated to operate reliably in harsh
sensor offers an operating voltage range from 8 to 28V dc. With a maximum
switching frequency of 20 kHz, the sensor is built to withstand temperatures
ranging from -40 to +120C. The sensor's IP67-rated M12 full-metal housing
features a front face made of IP68 rated stainless steel, protecting the
sensor's electronics from aggressive environments. Baumer says the non-contact
sensing principle minimizes abrasive wear and maintenance effort and as a
result, long-term, trouble free use is guaranteed.
16 hall sensor is designed to meet stringent railroad standards, making it useful
for use on heavy vehicles, cranes, pumps/compressors, marine vessels, mining
equipment, special machinery, wind turbines and other heavy-duty applications.
The completely sealed and coated all-metal housing allows the sensor to be
exposed continuously to environmental aggressors such as gear box lubrication
housing allows these sensors to be used in a diverse range of outdoor and
indoor applications such as motor current control, slip control, roll-back
prevention, wheel slide prevention, optimized starting/braking and speed
control and evaluation.
The DDV-IP is a two-wheeled self-balancing robot that can deliver cold beverages to thirsty folks on hot summer days. A wireless RF remote enables manual control of the device beyond the act of self-balancing. All of the features of the DDV-IP result in an effective delivery vehicle while providing entertainment to the user.
Eric Doster of iFixit talks about the most surprising aspect of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 teardown. In a presentation at Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, iFixit gave the Surface Pro 3 a score of one (out of a possible 10) for repairability.
Barnacles and mussels stay attached to ship hulls and rocks because of a very sticky protein glue they secrete, holding on for a long time even underwater. Researchers at MIT took mussel glue as inspiration -- and as an ingredient -- for engineering their own sticky waterproof adhesive.
