Reticulated Foams Expand The Boundaries Of Cellular Solids

Ideally suited for high-tech applications, reticulated foams of ceramic or metal provide industry as well as the research community with an extraordinarily versatile material form that can be engineered for particular properties and tailored for specific applications. The interconnected lattice of continuous ligaments within the cellular structure provides greater strength than shorter fibers and also ensures uniform material characteristics throughout the structure.

Healthy Sensing: Do You Know When Your Proximity Sensor Is Sick?

The age of the fully connected aircraft is upon us and it isn’t coming a minute too soon to meet the demands of today’s commercial aircraft. The integration of smart components helps to increase revenue and reduce the cost to serve. Honeywell has designed and implemented the patented FAVCO (Fixed Amplitude Variable Current Oscillator) technology, which allows for continuous health monitoring capable of detecting the majority of circuit and sensor faults.

AGM Thumbtack™ Valves for Small Enclosures: Smaller and Drier

Sensitive equipment such as optics and electronics can be damaged by humidity and condensation. Placing moisture-sensitive equipment inside a sealed enclosure reduces the risk of damage, but temperature and pressure variations can be problematic for a sealed enclosure if it does not have a pressure-relief mechanism.
