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.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
