The SMT172 by Smartec

The SMT172 is a three terminal integrated temperature sensor with a duty-cycle output. Two of the terminals are used for the power supply (2.7 -5.5 Volts) and the third terminal carries the output signal.A duty cycle modulated output is used so that the output can be read by a microprocessor, while the  analogue information is…

Alicat absolute pressure controllers enable direction of cryogen pressures ensuring precise temperature.

by Mic Chaudoir Neil Hartmann, CTO Alicat absolute pressure controllers enable direction of cryogen pressures ensuring precise temperature. Cryogens are loosely defined as gases which liquefy at or below 120°K under standard pressure (760 Torr).1 Cryogens are used for applications including cryopreservation, superconductivity and superfluidity. All of these applications share a need for temperatures under the…

Shaping a Paint Stream Using Mass Flow Pressure Controllers

by Alyssa Jenkins Automatic paint sprayers, like those used in the automotive industry, require a constant flow of gas and paint to evenly apply a coat of paint to a surface. While atomizing the paint, the amount gas and paint supplied to the electric field can be adjusted to shape the stream of paint. This…
