Details

The Extech 160W power supply offers high efficiency electrical power conversion for greater energy conservation and lighter power. It constantly calculates and adjusts the voltage and current limit points according to the available maximum power (160W). At maximum current, 10A, the voltage is limited to 16V, and at maximum voltage, 42V, the current is limited to 3.8A. A dual action rotary encoder control with push knob provides smooth, accurate and quick setting of voltage/current.

 

Three on-board user-defined voltage and current presets offer quick recall of frequently used test settings. The remote control feature permits output On/Off and voltage/current adjustments without the need to touch the front panel of the power supply. Setting, changing, and verifying the current limit level is convenient and can be performed without output pole spiking. A USB port offers PC connectivity for programming and running ramp/soak cycles with 20 programmable sets of voltage/current and varying test durations, up to 999 cycles. The DC ramp and waveform generator can either be panel set or set by the supplied software which previews the final waveform.

 

Applications and industries where the DCP42 can be employed include laboratory, telecommunications, production testing, field testing, and DC network powering.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
