Degree Controls, Inc.'sF600 airflow sensor has a small
form factor of 0.5 high X 0.25 wide and X 1.0 inch long with a 0.1 inch pitch
design and can anticipate thermal rise before it occurs by directly monitoring
airflow at critical board locations.
components are protected by the F600 by
using the output to sound an alarm or to reduce system power if there is a loss
of air velocity. Communication to the F600 is done via an I2C or
UART interface. User configurable outputs include PWM, tach or alarm open drain
an air velocity range of 0.5 to 5.0 m/s (100-1000 fpm) and an operating
temperature range of 10 to 60C, the F600 accepts a power supply of 12V dc and
has a Â±45 degree airflow acceptance angle. A temperature output is also
included. With internal factory calibration, the F600 sensors are
fully interchangeable with one another. No field calibration is required.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
