3D imaging is ideal where height, shape or volume is of importance for the production process. However, to make a complete quality or grading decision, it is often necessary to also consider the colour of the parts produced. This is, for instance, common in grading of fruits and vegetables, shape and baking degree verification of baked goods, and fill level and colour verification in beverages. By considering both 3D and colour aspects, more reliable decisions can be made which improve the product quality and reduce waste.
Testo has launched a series of data loggers that are characterised by a high level of user-friendliness and provide complete security.
By adopting a modular concept, TriMod Besta level switches have deviated from older conventional designs and are able to deliver reliability even in extreme process applications.
The UMC3000 ultrasonic sensor is suitable for use in harsh environments. The unit’s seamless, 100% stainless steel housing and chemically resistant cable system enable ultrasonic monitoring and control in areas previously considered impossible to solve.
Noshok offers a variety of orifices and snubbers to protect instrumentation from pulsation and pressure spikes by restricting the flow of rapidly increasing and decreasing pressures.
Marimex Industries’ range of process viscosity sensors includes the ViscoMeter VP-1000,which is geared towards OEM process applications. The series VP-1000 is capable of measuring low or high viscosities with process pressures up to 10 bar and process temperatures up to 130ÂºC. The ViscoMeter VP-3000 sensor can be adapted to most every process application. It is capable of measuring low to high viscosities and the sensors can be constructed for pressures up to 500 bar and temperatures up to 450ÂºC.
ifm has developed three series of full-metal sensors to meet different challenging requirements. The sensors can withstand a high temperature range up to 100°C, have a protection rating of IP69K and feature non-stick coating or a correction factor of K=0.
Dry bulk handling is en route to becoming a precision science with a level of control previously undreamt of, thanks to 20 years of research and development into digital non-contact torque monitoring.
The Elpro Ecolog Net wireless sensor logging system combines the reliability of the original Elpro Central Monitoring System with added flexibility of wire-free sensors.
The LMT Series level sensor can be used as a suitable alternative to tuning-fork level sensors that are prone to false signalling.
The model EMMA environmental multifunction meter measures humidity, temperature, air velocity, air flow, sound and light measurements in the one instrument. The large, dual-line 4-digit LCD shows both the current and average reading. For reading measurements in dimly lit areas, the display has a built-in back light. Besides measuring the current and average reading, the meter allows the user to read the minimum, maximum and differential measurement for each of the parameters. Included with the meter is the carrying case, rubber boot, battery and tripod.
Designed for very short measuring ranges between 50 and 200 mm, Turck has developed a miniature linear displacement sensor, the LI-Q17, uniting all the positive qualities of customary measuring systems in one solution. The LI-Q17 doesn’t work with a magnetic locator but with the resonant circuit measuring principle, where an object’s position is detected via an inductive oscillating system, consisting of a condenser and a coil. The sensor is able to work reliably where the functionality of a magnetic position device is massively affected by electromagnetic fields - caused by large motors or welding plants.
TechRentals has introduced the Beamex MC5 Multifunction NATA Calibrator into its test and measurement rental fleet.
The laser distance measurement systems AMS 300i from Leuze Electronic offers a selection of integrated interfaces.
The ST51 Air/Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) provides industrial plant engineers with a solution for greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring and supports the EPA’s BACT (Best Available Control Technology) initiative in the US. The flowmeter is suitable for the measurement and monitoring of industrial plant greenhouse gases. It features a no-moving-parts design that’s non clogging and operates over a wide flow range with low-flow sensitivity. Packaged in an explosion-proof transmitter, the calibration is matched to the user’s actual gas composition and installation conditions.
