Torque sensor has up to 300 per cent overload protection

FUTEK introduce the newly redesigned TFF400 Reaction Torque Sensor .This sensor features a Flange to Flange mounting solution with torque measurements ranging from 0.04 to 56 Nm and an improved Torsional Stiffness of 560 inch-oz/radians to 122,000 Inch pounds/radians making the sensor stiffer and faster. The new design features a lower deflection and robust flexure,  … Continue reading Torque sensor has up to 300 per cent overload protection

Safety key component to new differential pressure transmitter

In processing facilities in the chemical, pharmaceutical and energy industries, the main focus today, more than ever, is on safety. That’s why Safety Integrity Level (SIL) is becoming more important, providing modern process instrumentation with a coherent concept that can minimise potentially high risks to people and the environment. Vegadif 85 is a differential pressure … Continue reading Safety key component to new differential pressure transmitter

Quantum scientists demonstrate world-first 3D atomic-scale quantum chip architecture

UNSW scientists have shown that their pioneering single atom technology can be adapted to building 3D silicon quantum chips – with precise interlayer alignment and highly accurate measurement of spin states. The 3D architecture is considered a major step in the development of a blueprint to build a large-scale quantum computer. UNSW researchers at the … Continue reading Quantum scientists demonstrate world-first 3D atomic-scale quantum chip architecture
