electro-, electr-, electri-
(Greek > Latin: electric, electricity; from amber, resembling amber, generated from amber which when rubbed vigorously [as by friction], produced the effect of static electricity)
Electronics in our lives consists of numerous tools
Equipment which we use everyday relies on electronics to function including calculators, car controls, cameras, washing machines, medical scanners, mobile telephones, radar systems, computers; as well as many other applications or devices which are listed in this unit.
2. The application of electric or ultrasonic energy to a workpiece to effect the removal of material.
One of the advantages of this production technique is that very complicated shapes can be produced with a single operation from very hard alloys that would be very difficult, if not impossible, to machine with any other metal cutting technique.
2. A magnet consisting of a core, often made of soft iron, that is temporarily magnetized by an electric current flowing through a coil that surrounds it.
3. A coil of wire usually wound on a soft iron or steel core.
When current is passed through the coil a magnetic field is generated and the core provides an easy path for the magnetic lines of force. This concentrates the electric field in the core.
2. Involving or relating the interaction of electric and magnetic fields, both static and dynamic.
3. A reference to magnetism that is induced by an electric current.
4. Pertaining to radiation; such as, light, microwaves, X-rays, gamma rays, or radio waves.
5. Referring to the combined electric and magnetic fields associated with radiation or movements of electrons or other charged particles through conductors or space.
The Navy plans to install the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System on the USS Gerald R. Ford, a next-generation aircraft carrier scheduled to go into service in 2015.
The Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System technology is designed to handle newer, heavier, and faster aircraft than the traditional steam catapults, the Navy says.
The Navy says EMALS will provide "higher launch energy capacity;" improvements in system weight, maintenance, and efficiency; and greater accuracy of end-speed control and smooth acceleration at both high and low speeds".
The Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System is a multimegawatt electric power system involving generators, energy storage, power conversion, a 100,000 hp electric motor, and an advanced technology closed loop control system with diagnostic health monitoring.
This technology reduces stress on airframes because they can be accelerated more gradually to a takeoff speed than steam-powered catapults.
2. A cathode-ray tube in which electromagnetic deflection is used on the electron beam.
2. A clutch based on magnetic coupling between conductors; such as, a magnetic fluid and power clutch, an eddy-current clutch, or a hysteresis clutch.
Electromagnetic clutches operate electrically, but they transmit torque mechanically.
2. The capability of electronic equipment or systems to be operated in the intended electromagnetic environment at design levels of efficiency.
3. The ability of electronic equipment and systems to operate in the proximity of electromechanical devices, without causing or suffering unacceptable degradation in output or performance.
4. The capacity of an appliance or circuit to function correctly in its intended electromagnetic environment without transmitting unwanted signals to adjacent equipment or receiving unwanted interference from nearby sources.
2. Electromagnetic configuration of an installation, including all significant radiators of energy.
2. The speed of the propagation of electromagnetic waves in a vacuum.
2. A coupling that exists between circuits when they are mutually affected by the same electromagnetic field.
When a flawed portion passes through the magnetizing coil, the magnetic flux drops.
2. Motions of charged particles; for example, in the ionosphere, that are giving rise to electric and magnetic fields.
