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 Β±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.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
