FasTest's FasTest Internal (FI) series
provide fast, leak-tight connections for pressure and vacuum testing, fluid
filling and flushing applications from vacuum to 120 psi. FI connectors
are activated as compressed regulated air acts on a piston within the
connector, which expands a seal to form a leak-tight connection- without pipe
sealant, wrenches and thread damage. Air, liquid or gas media can then be
introduced through the connector to accomplish testing, filling or flushing of
series provides a solution for robotics or pick-and-place
applications that require delicate handling and/or testing. If there is an
error in an automated process that results in a part not arriving to the
specified location, a connector may still become pressurized, resulting in
over-expansion of the seal and potential damage to the connector. To regulate
this expansion of the seal-also referred to as the stroke-the FI series
now includes a stroke limiter feature. The FI series also
features a newly designed retaining clip that is recessed in the connector,
protecting it from wear and contributing to a longer-lasting connector life.
FI connectors that make them particularly reliable and
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.
