Humidification of Fuel Cells

Inside the engine of your car, gasoline reacts directly with oxygen from the air to cause combustion which enables your car to drive. This is the conventional way. Chemical energy is converted into useful mechanical energy. An alternative for this is combustion in an indirect way: a more clean and promising manner using a fuel cell. Oxygen and fuel, such as hydrogen, are fed to each side of the fuel cell, to electromagnetically react inside the cell forming water. As a result, electrons flow through an external circuit powering an electric motor. The chemical energy from the fuel is converted

Understand Pressure Transducer Temperature Specifications

A common concern when selecting a pressure transducer is the performance in various temperature conditions. Temperature is an important specification, as it has a direct effect on the accuracy of the transducer. Significant errors in the pressure readings or complete failure of the transducer are possible if installed in an environment that is outside the specified ranges. In this blog post, we will discuss the different temperature specifications commonly found on our datasheets and how to interpret them to make the most informed pressure transducer selection. This post will use CS10 Industrial Pressure Transducer specifications for examples throughout this post.

Allen Bradley Micrologix and PanelView vs Horner XL7

Example of a Cost Comparison Between Horner and Allen Bradley There are endless applications for small programmable logic controllers, and they typically will result in increased product quality, increased safety, and better process oversight and data. They also almost always result in less operator intervention and workload. This comparison will examine the costs of hardware and software for a relatively small application which requires a local human-machine touch interface. Some of the basic assumptions are: Small number of IO with some analog Medium/small size touchscreen interface Ethernet and Modbus connectivity Required Programming Software All prices are List Conclusion Including the
