Lake Shore Showcasing Cryogenic Probe Stations, Including Entry-Level TTPX, at MRS Spring.
April 15, 2014
  Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 15, 2014         Lake Shore Cryotronics, a leading innovator in solutions for measurement over a wide range of temperature and magnetic field conditions, announced today that it will showcase cryogenic probe stations and discuss its new fully integrated system for terahertz (THz) materials characterization at the upcoming MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit in San Francisco, Calif.       Lake Shore offers a full line of cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations, with configurations and options available for DC, RF and microwave probing of nanoscale devices and materials on full and partial wafers at variable temperatures. For attendees interested in seeing a Lake Shore probe station up close, the company will have its entry-level Model TTPX set up in booth 301 during the April 22–24 exhibit.         Attendees can also learn about Lake Shore's fully configured version of the TTPX (the Model PS-100), which is designed for cost-conscious researchers in need of a basic cryogenic probe station at an affordable price. The Model PS-100 gives users a straightforward probing solution without the complexity of choosing from multiple configuration options. It features a four-arm configuration suitable for most common probing applications.           In addition, Lake Shore will be discussing its new fully integrated Model 8501 THz system for non-contact, THz-frequency characterization of materials.

Cartell is proud to introduce its Pioneer™ Free Exit System.
April 14, 2014
  Salunga, PA (PRWEB) April 14, 2014           Cartell was the first to introduce a free exit system to the market based on magnetometer technology. It has made possible a hands-free egress system suitable for any gate operator. Now, homeowners will not have to use a remote or key fob, punch a keypad or let visitors out. With the Pioneer™, leaving a property protected by an automatic gate has never been easier.     The Cartell Pioneer™ free exit system is a two- component system consisting of a sensor probe that is buried beside the driveway and a control board that is conformal coated to be installed in a gate operator. It receives power from the gate operator.     Manufactured by Preferred Technologies Group since the late 1980's, the Pioneer™ was the first free exit system in the market based on magnetometer technology. It continues to be the most reliable with its redundant transient suppression, quality materials, unparalleled workmanship and five-year warranty.         The Pioneer™ has universal voltage AC and DC, making it suitable for any gate operator−solar or powered. With its low stand-by current (under 1 mA), the Pioneer™ is a good choice for solar powered gates. Other features include adjustable sensor probe sensitivity and relay time adjustment.

South Jersey Gas upgrading equipment in Sandy-affected areas
April 13, 2014
South Jersey Gas is inspecting and upgrading the equipment of 44,000 customers whose properties were affected by Hurricane Sandy. The $10 million infrastructure project -- which would be paid for as part of a proposed 14 percent increase to utility rates -- is meant to head off problems of corrosion due to flooding during the storm and prevent gas leaks in future storms.

Norman mayor, residents concerned about drilling near homes
April 10, 2014
Mayor Cindy Rosenthal and several Norman residents are concerned about a drilling rig on the east side of town. The city received a number of phone calls about drinking water sales for drilling operations, as the result of a story published by The Journal Record on March 31. On Tuesday, several residents spoke at a City Council meeting to share their concerns about water use and noise.   Rosenthal requested that the council's finance and oversight committees hold a joint special session to examine issues related to the drilling rig that are not covered by ordinances.

High Precision Bidirectional Heat Pulsed Flow Sensor
March 01, 2014
FULL TEXT Abstract In this work we have designed and simulated a thermal bi-directional integrated circuit mass flow sensor. The approach used here was an extension to the gas flow model given by Mayer and Lechner [1]. The design features high precision response received from analog integrated circuits. An established mathematical model for the heat flow equation including CFD parameters were used within COMSOL simulation (COMSOL Multiphysics, Sweden). Heat pulses of 55°C for a period of nearly 120 seconds and 50% duty cycles were applied as thermal sources to the flowstream. The boundary conditions of the heat equations at the solid (heating element) fluid interface were set up in the software for the thermal response. The hardware design included one heating element and two sensing elements were used to detect the bi-directional mass flow. Platinum sensors were used due to their linear characteristics within 0°C to 100°C range, and their high temperature coefficient (0.00385 ?/°C). Polyimide thin film heater was used as the element due to its high throughput and good thermal efficiency. Two bridge circuits were used to sense the temperature distribution in the vicinity of the sensing elements. Keywords
