PRODUCT Flow and pressure sensors with IO-Link. - Developed in response to the trend for increased monitoring and diagnositcs, Festo's SFAW is the first flow sensor from Festo for sensing liquid media and their SPAU is a new modular system designed for the monitoring of pressure and vacuum in process and factory automation applications.

PRODUCT High current carrying capacity relays! - New high current MOSFET relays from Omron Electronic Components Europe can support continuous loads of up to 3.3A AC, 6.6A DC. The new devices are squarely aimed at electromechanical relay replacement in smart meters, security, medical and industrial applications.

PRODUCT Five yearl long life Oxygen sensor. - The OLCT 10N is a digital detector, from Oldham, which is designed for commercial or industrial use in ATEX zone 2 or 22 areas or in non- hazardous environments.

PRODUCT Surface Mount and Locking DC sockets. - Cliff Electronics' Dual Gauge DC socket is now available in a surface mount version to facilitate efficient SMD PCB assembly of OEM products. The new version is available both taped and loose and complements the original discrete PCB mounting and solder tag versions.

NEWS Software Co-operation - Schneider Electric™ will be delivering Dream Report™ for CitectHistorian™ as a branded solution for plant reporting.

PRODUCT Affordable in-house validation of humidity probes. - The new HygroCal100 humidity verifier from Michell Instruments provides a practical option for companies that are not able to invest in a full humidity calibration laboratory to verify their humidity probes in-house. The unit is cost-effective and is available either on its own or with a choice of options to meet a variety of needs.

PRODUCT Decentralized servo technology without language barriers. - Since the issue of communication automatically arises with selection of the relevant automation, Kollmorgan has now made it easier to connect the relevant control system to the decentralized servo technology in the form of the decentralized AKD-N series using a multi-language interface.

PRODUCT Special offers in TandM instruments, incl IR Cameras - Until 30th June 2016 and while stocks last, Fluke is offering TiS45 Infrared Cameras at a special offer price, plus a free Apple® iPad® mini.
