I'm working on a similar project. Using an ultrasonic sensor and Raspi B+
There are several 'attacks' you can apply to this issue. The first is to filter the incoming air, if you have an air vent (which is unlikely) you could place some filter material...
Generally, you can get a cheapish "smart relay" which is fully programmable and can be used for way more than what you want for the same cost as a timer and relay. This would be the best option if you...
We do not have any current plans for a Portuguese DesignSpark site though we are looking at what should be our next versions so if this gets lots of votes then that would be great
The impeller of the tangential fan is a construction similar to that of a barrel. With a barrel shape construction the air can pass through the impeller without restriction or an...
Legacy equipment performing day to day tasks are the backbone of the infrastructure and services we rely on. Many of these systems and equipment have been around for years and could benefit from an upgrade...
Colleagues at RS Components, Austella and ebm-papst UK got together to discuss how to add an extra dimension to the Radial-G virtual reality racer to make the game more immersive. This project grew to be a very interesting and exciting challenge!
As the largest S-Force compact axial fan, the 2200F combines state of the art aerodynamic design and intelligent motor technology to deliver high flow with high-pressure development. Perfect for demanding applications where space is at a premium.
To meet the need to reduce energy consumption variable speed drives are used to match supply with demand. Frequency Inverters can achieve this however size restraints, high power density and efficiency losses mean that forced cooling is required.
Tangential fans are also known as cross-flow fans. Used extensively in the past for electronic cooling, they are now mainly used for applications that require a wide curtain of air. Find out how they work and where they can be used...
Here we discuss how the Mechatronic approach delivers benefit to many of today's engineering issues.
With lever return, 360 input range, and high reliability, ALPS joysticks are ideal for tactile input across a wide range of products, and provide a best in class user experience.
We see large E Stop’s on all sorts of machinery and equipment, where there is plenty of space to fit in the foolproof e-mech mechanisms needed to meet safety regulations - but what about space critical applications like handheld controllers?
