IMI Sensors'breakaway safety
designed to protect technicians and their equipment
from being pulled into rotating machinery during route-based vibration
monitoring. IMI's safety cables quickly disconnect in the event that a sensor
or analyzer cable becomes accidentally entangled when collecting data.
During route-based vibration monitoring, the protection of
personnel and valuable equipment is paramount. Designed to interface directly
with handheld data collectors and to withstand the harshest industrial
environments, safety cables from IMI
Sensors help prevent accidents involving portable data collector cables.
The breakaway safety
cables have EMI/RFI shielding and multiple connector configurations
including 2-pin MIL style, BNC plugs or jacks that are compatible with most
major data collector manufacturers.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
