Constant Force Spring Increases Carbon Brush Life and More

Constant Force Spring Increases Carbon Brush Life and More

Ming Tai Industrial Co., a total solution of steel strip spring, has developed a wide range of Constant Force Springs, which can be widely used in rail vehicles and wind power turbine.
In rail vehicle, constant force springs designed for carbon brushes can be applied to alternators; auxiliary motor, blower motor, traction motor, slip ring and earth return current units. In wind power turbine, it can be applied to grounding system, motor commutator as well. 
Constant force springs ensure that the carbon brush works consistently by dependably exerting constant pressure to increase...

High Temperature Endoscope

High Temperature Endoscope

Resolve Optics has supplied several high temperature Short Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) endoscopic viewing systems to enable inspection of the blades in a gas turbine while in operation. To enable inspection during gas turbine operation required that the SWIR endoscope had to operate up to 950° C at the tip with 150PSI pressure and be able to withstand severe vibration. To overcome the negative effects of high temperature and pressure – Resolve Optics created a novel design which allowed introduction of cool air at high pressure at the mid-section of the endoscope....

GO. A breath of fresh air in power electronics

GO. A breath of fresh air in power electronics

A fast measurement speed, achieved within tight cost and size constraints while integrating the primary conductor in SO packages without compromising the necessary insulation, is often as critical as the other high performances for current measurement in motor-drive applications.

A unique sensor with an integrated primary conductor achieves optimum temperature accuracy, measuring from -40 to +125 °C in a surface mounted SO8 or SO16 package. 
  
• 10-30 A nominal current
• Better than 1.3 % accuracy @ +25°C 
• Differential Hall...

Preserve Your Process Integrity While Measuring Flow

Preserve Your Process Integrity While Measuring Flow

The new MetraFlow ultrasonic flowmeter from Titan Enterprises incorporates a chemically resistant Perfluoralkoxy Alkane (PFA) tube onto which are mounted high sensitivity ultrasonic sensors. There are no dead areas, changes in fluid direction or obstructions, just a tube. As a result - MetraFlow can make non-intrusive flow measurements preserving the cleanliness of your process.

Applications including drug production, electronic device creation, medical research and food manufacture, require that a flowmeter has no inclusions or dead areas as this can lead to contamination...
