B&K Precision'sModel 1673 has a quad digital display,
which enables the user to visually monitor the output voltage and current on
both variable outputs simultaneously. The 1673's two variable outputs, configurable
from 0 to 32V dc, and one fixed output of 5V dc provide clean power. The two
variable outputs can also be used independently or interconnected in either
series or parallel configurations for greater output voltage or current
supply can be set via the front panel to provide constant voltage (CV) or
constant current (CC) operation with automatic crossover. This feature allows
for continuous transition from either constant current to constant voltage mode
in response to any load condition changes with a front panel LED indicator to
indicate which mode is active.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
