Check valve. -
The new model CV check valve from WIKA is designed for a wide range of applications in the process industry. Its sealing system with a self-centering piston reliably prevents backflow of liquid and gaseous media.
Miniature CO2, temp & pressure sensor. - The new EE895 sensor module from E+E Elektronik measures CO2, temperature and ambient pressure. The small 3-in-1 module is an ideal choice for measuring instruments used for ventilation and climate control, in building automation or for process control. Due to its low power consumption, the module is also suitable for battery-operated devices such as hand-held meters, data loggers or wireless transmitters. The temperature and pressure compensation ensures high CO2 measurement accuracy under changing environmental conditions.
Footswitch suitable for medical use. - Herga Technology's Modular Base System has successfully gained UL- and IEC- 60601-1 medical product approval. In combination with Herga’s best-in-class medically approved electrical and Bluetooth® footswitches and puckswitches, this building-block platform now provides a globally unique solution for multipedal medical equipment footswitch selection and purchase.
Support safe reopening! -
Omron is supporting the safe reopening of spaces after lockdown with a wide range of optical sensors. These components can form a vital part of an effective infection control regime within buildings, rooms and even crowd-controlled spaces by monitoring body temperature measurement, counting the density of people in an area and reducing the need to touch surfaces.
Shows & conference cancelled. - Questex, the parent company of Sensors Expo & Conference, Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference, Autonomous Technologies Conference, and the IoT Implementation Forum, has announced that due to the COVID-19 circumstances, they have been forced to cancel the events.
Collaboration to accelerate adoption of continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing. - Emerson has signed a joint commercialisation agreement with Integra CMS, a specialty consulting company focusing on specification and implementation of continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing systems, to provide comprehensive technologies and services for continuous processes. The two companies aim to quicken adoption of continuous manufacturing processes throughout the industry.
Wastewater treatment teams searching for COVID-19 -
Researchers are sifting through raw sewage in wastewater treatment facilities for traces of COVID-19 to find out how it spreads. (Control Engineering 9/9/2020)
Supporting the digital transformation journey - Whether it's metrics, use cases, technology assessments, organizational impact, resource requirements, or some other key piece of information, digital transformation research is never specific to your company. ARC's new Vanguard Service is changing that for industry.
Pneumatic Valve System with Embedded Wireless Connectivity. - Emerson has introduced a wireless automatic recovery module (ARM) for its AVENTICS™ G3 electronic fieldbus platform that makes it easy for technicians to perform pneumatic valve system commissioning and diagnostics from a mobile phone, tablet or laptop computer.
Sensor for laser output. - The new HP60A-15KW-GD power meter from Gentec-EO, through Laser Components, is designed for the high intensities of powerful lasers with comparatively small beam diameters (>50 mm). With a damage threshold of 10 kW/cm2, it withstands continuous output powers of up to 15 kW. A gold cone reflector directs the incoming light to the sides of the aperture to spread the intensity of the beam effectively over a larger area.
Ultrasonic Imaging Camera. -
FLIR has made its Si124 industrial acoustic imaging camera available for purchase globally, thus enabling customers to take advantage of the benefits of ultrasonic imaging.
Force sensor and load cell in aerospace. - Strainsert has a comprehensive standard product offering but characteristically for the aerospace industry, its custom design service comes to the fore – led by a proven multi-stage approach that is supported for British customers by its exclusive distribution partner, Ixthus Instrumentation.
