  • Wire Gauge Size Equivalents
    Wire gauge size tables.
  • Wire Gauge
    The common standard for the diameter (gauge) of round drawn wire is. the American Wire Gauge (AWG). As strands of wire are made, they are drawn through progressively. smaller dies. This is true of all wire. In fact, the AWG sizing system. suggests this drawing procedure. For example, a size 22 AWG
  • Gauge Your Level Instrumentation Options
    stainless steel. " One Size Doesn't Fit All Of course, the cost-of-entry criteria are crucial elements in decision-making. However, the following application criteria should steer the instrument selection process and be accommodated as a particular application allows: Beyond that, difficult
  • NASA's Hubble Space Telescope Explores the Volcanic Moon Io
    NASA's Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is allowing several teams of astronomers to explore Io [EYE-oh] at a level of detail not possible since a pair of Voyager spacecraft flew by the small moon 13 years ago. This is the first time astronomers have been able to directly gauge the size of the tenuous
  • P.2) The 2005 Fuel Cell Seminar, Palm Springs, California, USA, November 14-18, 2005 | by Dennis Sieminski, P.E. | F C T | January 2006 |
    for commercial stationary. To gauge size, consider that 200kW is enough for about 100 average households. The PAFC uses concentrated HPO as an electrolyte which is retained in a silicon carbide matrix. Pt catalysts are used for the anode and cathode. PAFCs operate at >160 C; otherwise the ionic
  • Cable Materials
    . In fact,the American Wire Gauge (AWG) sizing system suggests. this drawing procedure. For example, a size 22 AWG wire,smaller. than 20 AWG, is drawn, theoretically, through 22 progressively smaller. dies. Larger wire is drawn through fewer dies; hence, the lower number. "gauge."
  • Medical Device Link .
    , amplified, and digitized to display the force, load, pressure, displacement, or applied torque. Foil strain gauges have distinct advantages, including reduced size, a variety of gauge patterns, and temperature compensation. Low production cost and flexibility for installation on surfaces that are flat
  • Medical Device Link .
    , pressure sensor selection should not be taken lightly. When choosing a pressure sensor or transducer for a medical application, OEMs must carefully consider a variety of factors that include accuracy, media, package size, and environment, among others. Taking these into account, OEMs must then determine
  • | Electronics Industry News for EEs & Engineering Managers
    DNA computers hold promise of massive parallelism Researchers will gather in Orlando, Fla. beginning July 13 to advance the state of DNA computing, a field that holds the promise of ultra-dense systems that pack megabytes of information into devices the size of a silicon transistor. While some
  • The sound of viscosity
    Sound waves can measure viscosity on the fly. Acoustic-wavesensors are the size of a quarter and can measure viscosity in real time. Compact acousticwavesensors make possible handheld viscosity meters like this BiODE eCup unit. The acoustic-wave resonator supports a standing wave, interacting
  • Combining 2-D and 3-D Laser Applications
    . A typical job shop with laser cutting equipment processes either 4- by 8-foot or 5- by 10-ft. sheets of mild steel, stainless, and aluminum. Thicknesses are from 20 gauge to 0.5 inch, depending on the resonator 's beam output. The operator seeks to improve both productivity and profits
  • Minimizing Materials & Costs with Exothermic Welding
    ground resistance monitoring product, the GRM2000, which addresses concerns on operator safety and system efficiency. Often in grounding grids it is common to see main grounding conductors sized at 250 mcm or larger. When wire sizes are at this level or larger, it may become difficult and expensive
  • Self-testing chips take a load off ATE
    the circuit behave as it normally would. Holding the scan enable input high lets the sequential circuits act as a shift register or scan chain. The Scan Out signal would go to ATE, which would monitor the serial pattern to gauge the health of the circuitry in the chain. Test time depends both on design size
  • Sealing the deal
    motor and drive control conveyor speed for proper feed rate into the machine. To size systems properly, realistic cycle times for each labeling step must be defined. Otherwise, time allotted for certain moves may be insufficient. The typical labeling process begins with wrapping (printed with names
  • Switch Tips: Float-level switches
    Float-type switches are considered the least-expensive way of monitoring the level of fluid in a tank. They use a buoyant float to gauge a fluid level. In most models, the float carries permanent magnets and encircles a stationary stem. As the float rises or drops with fluid level, the magnetic
  • Brushless washer maker finds reliability in screwless connections
    an infrared stop detector plus ultrasonic width, length, and height sensors to gauge vehicle dimensions. A computer then determines an optimum distance between spray nozzles and the vehicle, and moves a boom containing spray nozzles around the vehicle accordingly. Spring-pressure terminal blocks
