Banner Engineering has introduced a new way to collect analog, digital and temperature information in hazardous areas. The system is a combination of wireless communication, battery technology and intrinsically safe electronics.
Although differential pressure (DP) flowmeters are based on a relatively inexpensive and mature technology, selecting and installing these devices is not simple and requires a reasonable level of engineering skill. With the Deltatop, Endress+Hauser has implemented a solution by supplying a one-stop-shop solution. All the steps related to product selection, engineering, calibration and manufacturing are now bundled together with Endress+Hauser supplying the Deltatop as a total package.
The MTS Systems Sensors Division Temposonics linear-position sensors can be instrumental in improving the filling process for facilities that package a wide variety of products. Where a packaging facility once required a combination scale to switch back and forth between various products during packaging cycles, the MTS linear position sensors can be used in equipment that is more compact due to fewer moving parts, as the sensors can replace a number of other components in the machine.
FlowJam is a non-contact flow/no flow sensor for solids. It uses a microwave technology to give results under harsh conditions of dust and sunlight. It is suitable for detecting solid flows in hoppers, conveyors, screw conveyors, air slides, etc.
Dusty is a broken bag detection system. It uses a triboelectric measuring technique and detects solid particles in a gas flow. The particles must be 0.3 Âµm in size, or larger.
Compared to a standard level measurement in liquids, the detection and measurement of interfaces have their own particular challenges, leaving many interface applications without reliable level measurements. Most popular today are the electronic or non-mechanical solutions with no moving mechanical parts which offer much higher long-term stability and low or no maintenance operation.
Capable of operating as a standalone flow sensor, or as part of an MS6 service unit combination, the MS6-SFE features a clearly laid out, backlit LCD showing flow or consumption data combined with a choice of output options.
Sitrans LR260 is the latest 2-wire radar continuous level transmitter from Siemens. It features process intelligence echo processing and 25 GHz pulse technology.
Siemens’ multifunction measuring device — the Sentron PAC3200 — combines a power measuring and monitoring device into one single product.
A line of pump diagnostic pressure sensors that detect potential pump damage caused by cavitation, trapped air or gas, blockages and deposits has been introduced by ifm efector.
Level measurement in hygiene-sensitive industries such as food is claimed to have become simpler, safer and more accurate with the release of Endress+Hauser’s Levelflex M FMP43.
The Leuze stainless steel 53 and 55 sensor series have been developed for applications involving enhanced hygiene requirements and exposure to intensive cleaning and disinfection cycles.
Banner Engineering SI-HG63 series hinge safety interlock switches are suitable for safeguarding of hazards. The hinge switches can be used in place of standard hinges on swinging guards, gates or doors.
The TandD RTR-61 wireless/waterproof data logger is designed to read the temperature or record the temperature from a penetration-type sensor.
The HTZ Smart HART humidity and temperature transmitter from Moore Industries simultaneously measures temperature and humidity in processes that require extremely close monitoring of humidity, temperature and dewpoint.
