Solenoid: Heat Vs Power Consumption

Solenoid: Heat Vs Power Consumption The solenoid vibration unit was heating up extensively in our previous experiments. To understand the vibrations the data was generated. TMP36 was used in this process to collect temperature data of the solenoid. The temperature of the solenoid varies with changing amperes, the following graph shows the change in temperature …

Vibration Unit

Motor Vibration As discussed in our previous posts vibration unit has two main ideas as mentioned below. Both the experiments are conducted and the results are quite promising for the usage. One is to use an irregular load on the motor. The second is to use a linear actuator or a solenoid. The idea was …

Stationary Tick-Bot

TREMoR Design What is TREMoR? ‘TREMoR’ (Tick collecting Robot for Entomological Modeling Research) is a stationary prototype device that builds on the standard tick trap approach to lure ticks. The Stationary Tickbot is undergrounded 1/6th of the meter. It consists of a compartment for dry ice which dispels CO2 and a motor which generates vibrations. …
