Honeywell Sensing and Control's TruStability board-mount pressure sensors offer a wide range of mechanical interfaces, mounting styles, and I/O options that enable medical device designers to select the right interface and package to reduce board space. These sensors also are fully compensated, calibrated, and amplified, which reduces component count and costs. A liquid media compatible option also is available. (Source: Honeywell)
Shrinking medical devices will help to provide the advancements of modern technology to an aging population to access medical service both in and out of the hospital environment. It will be great if sensor generated data, of critical patient requiring frequent attention, is made available to doctor on their smart phones. This will help doctor to treat patient from anywhere and at anytime.
Great article. I especially like the discussion on lower power. As medical device sizes shrink, the demand for more mobility will increase which will then prompt the demand for low voltage and low power requirements for longer battery lives.
Excellent update. The medical device market is definitely focusing on smaller, portable designs that need small size components and low power. Good overview of sensor technology used in these applications. Thanks.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
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.
