Sensing Systems' Endevcomodel 7240C is a miniature
piezoelectric accelerometer with low bandwidth flat to 30 kHz was designed for
general purpose high-frequency vibration measurements.
Endevco model 7240C
offers low base strain sensitivity with a total package weight of 4.8 gm,
eliminating mass loading concerns. The unit is hermetically sealed to prevent
against environmental contamination and is a self-generating device which
requires no external power source for operation.
Signal ground of the Endevco
model 7240C is connected to the outer case of the unit. When used with one of
the supplied isolated mounting studs, the accelerometer is electrically
isolated from the ground. A specially designed low-noise coaxial cable is also
supplied for error-free operation. The sensor is for use within a variety
of automotive, aerospace, commercial aviation, general laboratory testing and
structural monitoring applications.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
