176 high-temperature pressure sensors detect and measure dynamic pressure
phenomena and combustion instability in the extreme heat environments (+986F,
+530C) generated by today's gas turbines. These sensors are also ATEX and CSA
certified for use in hazardous areas. The Series 176 high-temperature pressure
sensors are ideally suited for gas turbine monitoring with sensitivities to 17
pC/psi (2.5 pC/kPa) and ranges from 20 psi (140 kPa) dynamic to 400 psi (2760
By mounting the Series 176 high-temperature pressure sensors to
the combustor, gas turbine operators can rely on critical diagnostics, part
fatigue analysis and the ability to continuously monitor and control emissions.
Operators also save time during combustion inspections and overhauls due to the
elimination of tubing and a purging system. The high frequency capability of
the Series 176 sensors enables the use of auto-tuning and on-line diagnostic
monitoring systems. These sensors also provide an output that can easily
connect to legacy combustion dynamics monitoring systems.
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
