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.

Guardians of the Riverbank: Planting Trees to Protect Water Quality and Wildlife

In fall of 2017, the Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) along with their project partners improved more than 9,000 feet of riverbank by planting 5,690 native trees and shrubs to protect the Connecticut River and its tributaries. The trees now guard against erosion and pollution on seven farms in New Hampshire and Vermont, and expand the existing habitat for local wildlife. This kind of project is part of CRC's core work. In August of 2011, Hurricane Irene roared up the East Coast of the United States, leaving a tell-tale path of destruction behind. Listed as the eighth-costliest hurricane in American history, the storm also hurt the watershed of the Connecticut River.

University of Toronto Doctoral Student Sees Environmental Monitoring Future in Internet of Things

Researchers face many difficulties. Assessing the ecological health of large geographic regions, especially those with a low population and few research facilities, is one of the many challenges scientists face. One such region is the Ottawa River in Canada, nearly 800 miles long with an overall drainage area of 55,000 square miles. Not only is it vast, but there are few human inhabitants and few research outposts. While gathering representative water samples in such a region is difficult enough, there is also the challenge of responding in a timely manner when problems arise.

Minnesota Water Quality Certification Program Encourages Sustainable Farming Practices

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) , agriculture is the leading probable source of impairments to assessed streams and rivers in the United States, and the third probable source to lakes. Agricultural impairments, typically considered nonpoint source pollution, include irrigation and stormwater runoff that carries animal waste, bacteria, fertilizer, naturally occurring metals, nutrients, pesticides, excess salt, and sediment. Unfortunately, this has at times positioned farmers—a group which has the most to gain from water quality initiatives—at odds with environmental agencies and scientists.
