Techsil provide thermal management solutions for high-performance electronics

Today’s electronics are smaller and more powerful than ever, leading to ever increasing thermal challenges for the systems designer. While fans, heat sinks, and even liquid cooling and thermoelectric devices can be used to provide enough cooling power, the problem remains to get the heat from the hot components into the cooling hardware. Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) are designed to fill in air gaps and microscopic irregularities, resulting in dramatically lower thermal resistance and thus better heat dissipation and cooling.

Six Sigma will open your mind to a new perspective that can be used in everyday life. For example, consider shopping. Many of us just “pop” to the shops every day or so, but are you wasting valuable time and money? If you implement Six Sigma Logic you will then calculate, best time to shop to avoid queues (saving wasted time), best places to shop for which items (cost reduction), best route to take to get to all required shops most efficiently vs.

High Performance Alloys – a short history

Almost 250 years ago in November 1751 nickel was discovered as an element. Monel*400 , a nickel copper alloy was one of the first high nickel alloys introduced to industry in 1905 . Today almost 100 years later it is still widely used and will continue to be used due to its outstanding corrosion resistance in many industrial applications.

Pumping/VSD Installation Fires – What do you do about RCCB Protection?

To safely install pumping equipment containing VSDs and EMC filters connected to a circuit covered by the Wiring Regs (BS7671) requires a detailed understanding of the operational leakage currents and residual currents associated with the EMC filter / VSD / Motor combination including the local environmental conditions, pump availability  and earthing facilities.

Latest industrial amplifier precisely measures torque and angle of rotation

HBM has launched its PX460 plug-in measuring card enabling torque transducers to be fully integrated in its PMX industrial measuring amplifier by giving dynamic and precise measurements of frequency, pulse, speed, angle of rotation and torque.

The PX460 amplifier plug-in card can acquire up to four torque transducers simultaneously with a measuring bandwidth of up to 6 kHz. In addition to torque, encoder signals of up to 2 MHz can be acquired with absolute precision in challenging industrial environments. Real time Ethernet fieldbuses such as Profinet, Ethercat or Industrial Ethernet ensure reliable integration of machine and plant control systems.

HBM releases upgraded digital charge amplifier

HBM has released an improved version of its CMD600-P digital charge amplifier that now features IP65 degree of protection facilitating its use in challenging industrial environments as well as in laboratory applications.

The CMD600-P digital charge amplifier also features an extremely compact design, high function density and can be positioned directly at the measuring point to measure forces or torques in extremely tough and often dirty environments. 

Using Light to Analyse, Engineer and Optimise

Understanding how structures respond to loads and their environment is of paramount importance for their successful design and reliable operation. Analyzing the strains, stresses, temperatures and deflections in a bridge during rush hour, a composite aircraft’s wing spar during a storm, or a high-end bicycle during the Tour de France is what allows engineers to predict a structure’s lifetime, increase its safety and optimize its performance.
