The Extech single output switching mode DC power supply converts local AC mains power into DC power, with adjustable voltage and current levels.
The Extech Switching Mode DC Power Supply is a dual action voltage and current control supply with push knob for fine and coarse tuning. The unit has 0 to 30V, 20A adjustable output switching mode power supply. A remote control is used for output voltage/current and on/off, and two user-defined voltage and current presets are avaiable, as well as one 13.8V/20A factory preset. The supply has an over voltage, over-temperature, and short circuit protection.

Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.Read More
In sediment samples taken throughout the world’s oceans, researchers key on shell fragments from single-celled organisms to learn more about the history of an area’s chemistry. But surprisingly little is known about how these organisms form their shells in the first place. In a bid to alleviate some uncertainty, scientists at the University of Washington have imaged some of the actions that take place. As a starting point, the researchers have zeroed in specifically on the time period during which single-celled organisms first start to form their shells. The researchers caught juvenile foraminifera by diving in deep water off Southern California. They then raised them in the lab, using tiny pipettes to feed them brine shrimp during their weeklong lives.Read More
Earlier this year, we covered a work in progress to build a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for Yellowstone Lake . It was just an idea back then, but the exploratory craft has since become a reality thanks to some determined researchers and a Kickstarter campaign that reached a goal of $100,000 in funding. Full cost for building the vessel was around $500,000, but crowdfunding a portion of it allowed officials at the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration (GFOE), a nonprofit engineering group, to spur public interest. In a similar vein, they named the completed ROV “Yogi” in honor of the famous fictional comic book character devised by Hanna-Barbera who gets into trouble at Yellowstone National Park.Read More
