Wireless temperature and humidity system

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Testo Pty Ltd

The Saveris radio probes measure temperature and humidity. The probes save their measurement data and send it to the central base at regular intervals. If a limit value is exceeded, a radio link is established immediately.


Schmidt flow sensor

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Pacific Rim Technical Services

The Schmidt flow sensor SS 20.260 offers a measuring range of 0-50 m/s and an operating temperature range of up to 120°C. The temperature can be measured with an additional linear output, and a separate temperature sensor is not required. The unit has a robust construction to protect it against impact.


Gas chromatograph

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Siemens Ltd

The Sitrans CV process gas chromatograph based on micro-technology rapidly and precisely determines the calorific value of natural gas. The main use of Sitrans CV is for custody transfer of natural gas.


Magnetic inductive flowmeter

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Kobold Instruments Pty Ltd

The DMI series flowmeter operates on the magneto-inductive principle. With no protrusions into the pipe, conductive liquids and slurries can be measured with virtually no system pressure loss. The DMI is available with a PEEK or PVDF flow tube and Hastelloy C measuring electrodes are standard.


Temperature and humidity sensors

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: W&B Instruments Pty Ltd

Delta Ohm has released a series of analog and digital temperature and humidity transmitters. The HD9817 series feature compact self-contained transmitters with analog (0-1 V) and digital (RS232 and USB) outputs.


Fluid property analyser

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Thermal Component Technologies

The Fluid Property Analyser (FPA) is an innovative and robust sensor designed and manufactured by Measurement Specialties which simultaneously and directly measures the viscosity, density, dielectric constant and temperature of fluids.


Pressure switch

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: IMI Precision Engineering

The 50D is an IP65-rated electronic pressure switch suitable for use in pressure ranges -1 to 0 bar, -1 to 1 bar, 0 to 6 bar and 0 to 10 bar. It has two electric outputs with four output options: 2xPNP, 2xNPN, PNP+analog and NPN+analog.


Variable area flowmeters

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Swagelok

Swagelok variable area flowmeters (VAFs) are used to measure liquid and gas flow rates by means of a tapered tube and float and can provide highly accurate measurement with individually calibrated scales and a 10:1 turndown ratio.


Flow sensor for solids

05 October, 2008 | Supplied by: SWR Engineering Messtechnik Pty Ltd

FlowJam is a non-contact flow/no flow sensor for solids. It uses microwave technology to give reliable results under harsh conditions of dust and sunlight. It is a suitable device for detecting solid flows in hoppers, conveyors, screw conveyors, air slides, etc.


Pressure switch/transmitter

01 October, 2008 | Supplied by: AMS Instrumentation & Calibration Pty Ltd

The Noshok 800 Series indicating pressure switch/pressure transmitter provides continuous pressure monitoring and allows programming of the setpoints without pressurising.


Vibrating fork level switch

01 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Kobold Instruments Pty Ltd

The NWS liquid level switch is designed as a 2- and 3-wire switch and can be universally used in vessels and pipelines. The NWS operates on the tuning fork principle in air at resonance frequency. A piezoelectric crystal is used for excitation of oscillations and for monitoring the actual oscillation frequency.


High-speed data acquisition module

17 September, 2008 | Supplied by: Interworld Electronics and Computer Industries

Interworld Electronics  has available the 104-AIO16A multifunction analog I/O board. Its features include 10 analog input ranges, a 1024 sample FIFO buffer, onboard over sampling for additional noise reduction and auto calibration to reduce converter offset and gain errors.


Single-board reconfigurable I/O platform

17 September, 2008 | Supplied by: National Instruments Aust Pty Ltd

National Instruments has released Single-Board RIO devices that offer engineers and scientists a low-cost, integrated hardware option for deploying embedded control and data acquisition applications for OEMs and machine builders.


Measuring boiler and furnace temperatures — replacing welded thermocouples without shutting down

15 September, 2008 by Paul Aloia* | Supplied by: Moore Industries Pacific Inc

Protection tubes and flexible sensors make it possible to replace thermocouples without shutting down the entire process for days or weeks.


Who adds value?

12 September, 2008 by John Immelman | Supplied by: Endress+Hauser Australia Pty Ltd

Building a greenfield process plant today inevitably throws up a host of challenges, but successful greenfield projects take advantage of a potent ingredient in the engineering chain: added value.
