MEET BRIGITTE BAGAMAKEUR, IV
THE DUCHESS DE SAC SALINE
Seeking to rehydrate the world drip by drip, the Duchess
counts on Uson. It’s what the world’s leading medical device
manufacturers do. Thanks to her Sprint iQ multi-function
leak and flow tester, Brigitte is supremely confident her
IV bags keep vital fluids completely contained. And all
mankind is grateful.

Compact Mini High Speed Camera
Photron introduced the small, lightweight FASTCAM Mini UX100 high speed
camera. The new, one-piece high speed imager provides 1,280 x 1,024 pixel
resolution to 4,000 frames per second (fps), 720 high-definition (HD) resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels) to 6,400 fps, and reduced resolution operation up to
800,000 frames per second. The global electronic shutter operates down to 1
microsecond to provide blur free, B&W imagery with 12-bit pixel depth (36-bits
for the color version). Light sensitivity is ISO 12232 Ssat certified at 8,000 ISO
12-bit monochrome; 4,000 ISO for the 36-bit color version. Photron’s new
camera offers powerful high speed imaging performance in a compact 120 mm
x 120 mm x 90 mm package, weighing only 1.5 Kg.

Software Add-on Limits Specimen Self-Heating Under Dynamic Loads
Instron announced the release of the Specimen Self-Heating Control (SSHC) add-on to the versatile Instron WaveMatrix Software package for dynamic and fatigue
testing of polymers and composites. It maintains specimen temperature within a
tight band and can save time, cost, and energy in the QC test lab, as well as in the
development and optimization of composite formulations. Polymers and composites show a pronounced self-heating effect during cyclic loading and a strong
temperature performance correlation, so fatigue testing is traditionally conducted
at rather low frequencies. The SSHC add-on uses the difference between the
specimen’s continuously recorded temperature and a pre-specified temperature
target to maximize the testing frequency in a closed loop.
