On the technology front, immunochromatographic assays, magnetorestrictive
methods, field-effect transistor methods based on nanotubes, nanowires, and nanoribbons are the next generation technologies that are being worked on to enhance immunoassay diagnostic tests.
Specific topics include the use of piezoelectric polarization in ATILA, piezocomposite applications of ATILA, phononic crystal applications of ATILA, and thermal analysis in piezoelectric and magnetorestrictive
materials using ATILA.
The RMC 150 gets inputs from magnetorestrictive
linear displacement transducers (for position feedback) and load cells that are mounted on each actuator, then provides direct outputs to drive the servomotors are required.
Also on display, the Lewis Nearfield System uses magnetorestrictive
transducers to produce sound vibrations in an aqueous solution.
The Series 7220-S Food Grade Level Sensor offers magnetorestrictive
position sensing technology with the company's Stik sensor packaging in a sanitary level-measuring instrument.
Configurations include a rack-and pinion unit that can apply up to 500 in-lbs of torque; a unit with a rotary potentiometer for position feedback; and an actuator equipped with magnetorestrictive
switches and miniature reed switches for position sensing.
will bring out its Micropulse non-contact, magnetorestrictive
linear position sensor with [pm]0.
In addition, the machine was instrumented with a Kyowa PAV-200KEM33 hydraulic pressure transducer, a Dynisco PT465XL 210 MPa (30,000 psig) nozzle pressure transducer and a Lucas Shaevitz magnetorestrictive
linear displacement transducer.
