CMOS Camera

JAI (Shanghai, China/San Jose, CA) has introduced the GO-2400-PGE, an industrial camera featuring Sony’s IMX174, a 2.35-megapixel global shutter CMOS imager. The camera offers a maximum resolution of 1936 x 1216 pixels, while running at 48.8 frames per second over a GigE Vision interface. Power can be provided via the GigE Vision interface or via a 6-pin GPIO connector.

Benefits of Using Layered Thermal Insulation Systems in Industrial and Commercial Applications

The new Layered Composite Insulation for Extreme Environments (LCX) technology provides a unique combination of thermal, mechanical, and weathering performance capability that is both cost-effective and enabling. In addition to the proven areas in cold-work applications for piping and tanks, the LCX technology also has the potential for broader industrial and commercial use.

Gear Shift Modeling and Analysis for Automatic Transmissions in MapleSim

In this paper, a simple dynamic physical model of an automatic transmission was created to evaluate all required forces and motion characteristics of the system during the shift process. Gear shift quality was assessed by setting different timing sequences for the engage/disengage process of the frictional components (pressure on the clutches), during the upshift process. The output torque of the transmission was analyzed under two conditions, with the timing to apply/remove pressure from the clutches being different in both cases.

Development of Real-Time Battery Models for HIL testing of Battery Management Systems

The explosion in the use of electronic devices, electrified vehicles and decentralized power utilities has driven demand for rechargeable batteries. This has led to a significant increase in research investment into battery technologies to address challenges including thermal stability and battery life extension. This whitepaper outlines how such challenges can be overcome in the development of a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing system for the Battery Management Systems (BMS) used in electrical energy storage products.

Parallel Prototyping and the Engineer’s Dilemma

R&D Engineers face rapidly shrinking development cycles and rising competitive pressures. In the high-stakes practice of regulatory compliance, balancing development costs with speed, safety and performance are critical to a product’s success. This paper demonstrates how the parallel prototyping of two materials in a heating component contributes to the return on investment of a new product launch in the medical device industry. The study addresses the verification, validation, form and fit testing relative to the FDA approval process, as well as its execution within component design, product design and pilot production.
