Linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs) from RDP Electrosense are electromechanical transducers used to monitor railway tracks. Continuous welded railway tracks can be subjected to stress or compression as temperatures change or can misalign as movement takes place. Engineering companies use RDP LVDTs to conduct tests for expansion, movement, and alignment. The LVDTs are designed to be installed in carriers, resisting damage when bolted directly to the side of the rail. Stainless steel LVDTs also offer improved accuracy, high cycle life, and infinite resolution. The transformers are suitable for shock and vibration exposure applications and feature resistance to extreme temperatures, water, and corrosive fluids. RDP offers both standard and custom models to accommodate mechanical/mounting requirements and various environmental conditions.

Christopher Grundler, the Director of OTAQ for the U.S. EPA, answered questions about Phase 2 rule-making for heavy trucks, global harmonization of emissions regulations, and his outlook for a new national NOx standard. Grundler will be the featured speaker on opening day of the SAE 2017 Government/Industry Meeting taking place January 25-27 in Washington D.C.
Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
With the new SCALEXIO LabBox, dSPACE offers a compact high-performance system for hardware-in-the-loop tests.
The accuracy of an NO gas sensor (the primary component of NOx) can be compromised when exposed to ambient temperatures above 86°F (30°C) and significantly more so above 104°F (40°C).
