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.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
