Omega's IR-USB series of
infrared temperature sensors provide a method for most PC based non-contact
temperature monitoring. The unit features an IR sensor/signal conditioner
installation with a direct USB connection and free user software that converts
your PC into a temperature meter, chart recorder or data logger. The Emissivity
is adjustable from 0.10 to 1.0 and this product measures -18 to 538C (0 to
1000F). Some typical temperature monitoring applications are where the object
to be measured is moving; where the object is surrounded by an EM field, as in
induction heating; where the object is contained in a vacuum or other
controlled atmosphere; or in circumstances where a fast response is required.
A flyer or flier, also called a circular, handbill or leaflet, is a form of paper advertisement intended for wide distribution and typically posted or distributed in a public place or through the mail.
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
