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.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
