Affordable Inertial Navigation System For IR Imagers

Airborne surveillance, search and rescue light aircraft
Malmkoping, SWEDEN — Polytech, a Cedip Infrared Systems company, has announced the launch of its new inertial navigation system (INS) specifically designed to operate with its Cobolt multi sensor gimbals in airborne surveillance, search and rescue and law enforcement applications.

For geo referencing and geo mapping with moving maps it is necessary to accurately define the optical line of sight. A simple GPS reference is not enough to achieve the pointing accuracy required in critical applications such as fire mapping, law enforcement or search and rescue.

ISC Demonstrates Newly Improved Sensor Hubs

How Proactively Monitoring a Company’s Environment Avoids Catastrophic Loss of Computer Equipment
(PRWEB) February 23, 2007 — Whether it’s small computer room with a few devices or a large data center with multiple devices, balanced temperature and humidity are two key factors that should be monitored in order to maintain the most favorable computing environment.

Maintaining a balanced temperature in a computer room or data center is essential. Without a balanced environment, hot spots can form and build up heat behind equipment racks or near large machines. To solve this problem, Information Support Concepts (ISC) recommends positioning sensors near the identified hot spot areas to alert the tech team of unacceptable temperature fluxes.

28th Conference on Thermoelectrics ICT2007

June 3 to June 7, 2007
Jeju, Korea — The Korean Thermoelectric Society (KTS) is pleased to invite all affiliated member of International Conference on Thermoelectrics (ICT) to participate in the ICT 2007 Conference scheduled to take place in Seogwipo City, Jeju Island, S. Korea from Jun 3(Sun) ~ Jun 7(Thu), 2007.

Through this Conference, we are hoping all attendee get a chance to share with valuable information about “the harmony between Heat and Electricity.”

This ICT 2007 will provide a forum for topics of current issue and significance related to the thermoelectric materials, systems and application. At the beginning of the times of expensive energy, we hope the field of thermoelectric is spotlighted anew as an effective tool for energy conversion upon “ICT 2007”.

1-Wire Digital Temperature Sensor

Provides New Chain-Mode Function for Determination of Physical Location
DALLAS TX, USA ?????? Dallas Semiconductor, a wholly owned subsidiary of Maxim Integrated Products (NASDAQ: MXIM), introduces the DS28EA00, a 1-Wire?? digital temperature sensor with ??0.5??C accuracy and a new chain-mode signaling and protocol feature that quickly and automatically determines the physical location of individual sensors in an environment where multiple sensors are connected to a common 1-Wire line.

The DS28EA00 is ideal for applications that require accurate multipoint digital temperature measurements with minimal wiring complexity and cost.

The DS28EA00 measures temperature over the -40??C to +85??C range and is factory calibrated in a liquid bath to provide a worst-case conversion error of ??0.5??C within the ambient-measurement-temperature range of -10??C to +85??C; it provides ??2.0??C worst-case conversion error within the ambient range of -40??C to -10??C.

Device temperature sensing and digitization is produced from the differential VBE output of a matched-NPN transistor pair and a 1st-order sigma-delta ADC. Conversion resolution is user programmable with 9-bit to 12-bit options.
