Breakthrough research is an ongoing goal of NASA’s efforts. In its mission to gain fundamental knowledge about Earth and space systems, the organization’s satellite-based observations have led to breakthroughs.
Infrared (IR) proximity sensor solutions using photo-reflectors, photo interrupters and proximity detection as a peripheral function.
Heat can be the great enemy of more than just electronics. Modern day refrigeration and cooling systems are multi-billion dollar industries whose products keep us cool and comfortable.
Light sensors detect light and convert light energy to an electrical signal output. Once converted into electrical energy, the radiant energy within the infrared to ultraviolet light frequency spectrum source can then be measured.
The good news for buyers is that leadtimes will remain stable at three weeks.
The success of industrial processes is based in large part on creating stable, repeatable conditions in which they are carried out.
Flow sensors are used to measure flow velocity, volumetric flow rate, or mass flow of a liquid or gas. Mass flow for gases is specified in units of standard liters per minute (slm) or standard cubic centimeters per minute (sccm).
It is easy to think of touchscreens as the most important part of the human/machine interface in modern industrial control.
The global robot population is growing rapidly, and with it the demand for the sensors and systems that enable these machines to work in increasingly complex environments.
Medicine does not advance technology, technology advances medicine. This is especially true in diagnostics, maintenance, and monitoring for both interceptive and preventative medical techniques.
Vibration sensing technology can be used to successfully detect & issue earthquake warnings & provide essential data to proactively manage machine systems
