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.
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
