Temperature Sensors

Exergen Corp. (Watertown, MA) has announced the Extreme IRt/c non-contact temperature sensor. A custom-designed housing protects the sensor from extreme vibrations, shifts in pressure, and other acute ambient changes. The sensor was originally developed for a defense contractor whose client needed to measure the temperature of equipment mounted on the exterior of military aircraft.

Submersible Position Sensors

Macro Sensors (Pennsauken, NJ) has introduced submersible LVDT Position Sensors for use as part of subsea measurement systems. The SSIR 937 Series Submersible LVDT Position Sensors withstand deep sea environments with external pressures to 5000 psi. Designed for use in either pressure-balanced, oil-filled containers or directly in seawater, the 0.94-inch (24-mm)-diameter technologies are available in standard ranges of 2.00 inches (50 mm), 3.00 inches (75 mm), or 4.00 inches (100 mm). To minimize the number of pressure-sealed connections and I/Os, a 4-20mA two-wire, loop-powered I/O is utilized. The 4-20mA I/O also reduces noise over long transmission lines. A data acquisition system on the platform above supports offset management. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61058-149

Product of the Month: February 2016

MSC Software Corp., Newport Beach, CA, announced the release of Marc 2015 nonlinear and multiphysics simulation software. Enhancements include new material models to simulate complex dynamic behavior of elastomers, permanent deformation of thermoplastics, and anisotropic plastic deformation in metal forming. The software provides a cohesive contact behavior that allows users to apply a finite stiffness in the normal and tangential direction, improving stress results in the contact zones and the overall deformation. A new family of elements has improved bending behavior compared to traditional lower order triangular and tetrahedral elements, and can be used for either compressible or nearly incompressible behavior. Two new global adaptive meshing methods are included, as well as improvements to Mentat, the user interface of Marc. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61058-120
