Efficient implementation of reliable earthquake protection: using balls screws to dampen buildings and bridges

Constructing buildings and bridges in earthquake-prone regions usually necessitates the use of damping techniques. While solutions such as mass spring damping or hydraulic systems provide the traditional way of absorbing dynamic compressive and tensile forces, an alternative is to use vibration dampers featuring high-load ball screws. The use of ball screws saves space and permits Read more about Efficient implementation of reliable earthquake protection: using balls screws to dampen buildings and bridges[…]

Vaccine transportation needs the right chip

Keeping vaccines cooled during storage and transportation requires a special RTD temperature sensor, this is why: Different vaccine manufacturers require various storage temperatures. Some typical storage temperatures for vaccines are -20°C, others require storage at -70°C. The industry standard for thin film RTD sensors are limited to -30°C for class A and -50°C for class Read more about Vaccine transportation needs the right chip[…]
