As with SL Power’s other high-density open frame AC/DC Industrial/ITE power supplies, the CINT3110 is approved to the highest safety standards, including EN/IEC/UL60950-1, 2nd edition.
A new faculty member at the University of California, Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering has recently received a grant to develop an energy management system that can adapt to changes in electricity prices, renewable energy availability and risks to electric system reliability, with minimal cost to utility companies.
The environmental certification seals, preferred ingredient lists and consumer product guides appearing on cleaning products in the United States and abroad are the topic of the cover story in Chemical & Engineering News. C&EN is the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society.
Scientists have found an early step in how the brain's inhibitory cells get excited. A natural balance of excitement and inhibition keeps the brain from firing electrical impulses randomly and excessively, resulting in problems such as schizophrenia and seizures.
Enzymes, workhorse molecules of life that underpin almost every biological process, may have a new role as "intelligent" micro- and nanomotors with applications in medicine, engineering and other fields. That's the topic of a report in the Journal of the American Chemical Society....
Up to now, it has been a case of "either/or." On the one hand, we have the typical ultra-compact, lightweight electric car, where designers have had to compromise on safety. With larger e-cars on the other hand, the heavier frames and crumple zones come at the expense of battery range.

The new crop of BlackBerry smartphones has finally arrived after a lengthy delay that allowed other mobile devices and operating systems made by Apple, Google and Samsung to build commanding leads in a market that is redefining society and technology. BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd....
iWatt Inc. launched a digital AC/DC solid state lighting (SSL) LED driver platform designed specifically to address the key issues of cost and lifetime in price-sensitive, non-dimmable, residential SSL bulb applications. The first device in this new platform is the iW3626, a single-stage driver with output power up to 10W for 60W-equivalent, non-dimmable LED bulbs.
By simulating 25,000 generations of evolution within computers, Cornell University engineering and robotics researchers have discovered why biological networks tend to be organized as modules – a finding that will lead to a deeper understanding of the evolution of complexity.
With their advanced performance, rugged construction and superior reliability, the modular IPI Three-Phase Transformer Series from Innovative Power, Inc., delivers superior power management in a wide range of instruments and controls designed for heavy-duty industrial use.
Bulky and noisy air-conditioning compressors and refrigerators may soon be a thing of the past. With the latest discovery by scientists from Nanyang Technological University, current cooling systems which uses refrigerant harmful to the ozone layer could be replaced by a revolutionary cooling system using lasers.
LG Electronics Inc. reported its first quarterly loss in a year Wednesday after Europe slapped it with a massive fine for price fixing. Its net loss totaled 468 billion won ($429 million) for the last quarter of 2012, compared with a loss of 112 billion a year earlier.
