It's amazing how useful

It's amazing how useful a micro-valve can be for the HVAC systems, but even if almost everyone has an air conditioning device installed in their homes, not many of them know how important a micro-valve is. Those interested in this topic can find more information from the Andy Lewis HVAC specialists about everything a HVAC system means.

Using a MEMS microvalve as a pilot for a traditional spool valve is analogous to using an accelerometer to trigger an airbag--the idea being that the MEMS element just senses conditions, then fires off a signal to the traditional "reaction" circuits to fire the airbag, in the case of accelerometers, or to turn up/down the flow in an HVAC in the case of a microvalve. The MEMS sensor just does a better job of sensing and responding, not actually performing the macro-sized action.

How about developing energy harvesting using the similar MEMS technology? By doing so, maybe we can really enjoy the nice fuel free system.

An interesting development - that a controller of a controller improves economy and saves space. Certainly there is a huge market for more cost effective and reliable HVAC and automotive systems. How is it "that switching to its micro-valves can increase the efficiency of existing HVAC systems by as much as 25 percent, making the technology good for retrofits"? Parts Search

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
