8/19/15 Humidity Measurement FAQ
Humidity measurement can be the most difficult, problem-ridden measurement that most people ever encounter in their professional lifetime, but it doesn’t have to be. All sorts of questions arise about the best instrumentation, proper technique and why results may be inconsistent and inaccurate. This presentation will answer the seven most commonly asked questions about humidity measurement and in doing so hope to make life a little easier and spare attendees from the problems that technical professionals in numerous industries have encountered. Learn More
8/19/15 Custom LED and LCD Solutions
When standard, off-the-shelf display technologies do not meet all of your design needs, consider an application-specific solution. This presentation explains how custom optoelectronic solutions can improve product reliability and speed time to market – often with fewer components and less cost. Learn More
8/20/15 Compact Power – the Next Wave
Electric motors consume more than half of the electrical energy produced on the planet, and the level of consumption is expected to increase by nearly 20 percent in the next decade, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), with motors consuming 0.75 kW or less using the greatest portion of that energy. There is also a growing need, particularly in developing economies, for means of electrical power generation that are compact, energy-dense, and compatible with sources of rotary power not based on fossil fuels. This webinar will provide attendees with information about a new paradigm for electric motor/generator design that brings together the latest in materials technology, electromagnetic and mechanical design to produce devices that meet the rapidly growing demand for high-efficiency motors and generators. Learn More
Adhesives can often replace welding, bolts, screws, and other mechanical attachments in industrial assemblies. This presentation discusses the many benefits of adhesive bonding and provides detailed information to guide the design engineer or production manager through the process of qualifying adhesives for a particular application. Learn More
Purdue’s Polytechnic Professional Programs offer full online and weekend masters programs designed for the unique needs of full-time working professionals in technical roles. Nine programs cover technology topics as diverse as Aviation and Aerospace Management, Biometrics, Biotechnology Innovation, and IT Business Analysis. This presentation describes the programs available and explains what differentiates them from those offered by other online providers. Learn More
Managing business in a connected world requires the ability to adjust in real time to a limitless number of decisions based on millions of live signals from devices and machines.
