The island state city of Singapore is often hailed as the world’s premier smart city. With a 99 per cent connectivity rate, robo-taxis and huge network of sensors providing a large pool of data for analysis, it is easy to see why the island is at the forefront of the smart city movement.
Compact level sensors from VEGA with 80 GHz radar technology are said to provide reliable measurement results under all conditions. The VEGAPULS sensors, as well as switches and controllers, provide level, point level, and pressure measurement instrumentation.
The GWR-3000 guided wave radar from BinMaster is suited for types of liquids that include those with steam, vapour, foam, condensation or those prone to residual buildup.
Variohm SMO3100 series pressure sensors from Royal Distributors Inc. now include an SIL 2/PLd functional safety version. Aimed at safety-critical pressure measurement tasks for gas and liquids compatible with stainless steel or titanium wetted parts, the model SMO3100 PLd will allow users the ability to meet SIL2 functional safety levels on machines and systems.
There are many types of object detection sensors available on the market. Some of them, such as limit switches, require direct contact with the object.
Food-borne bacterial pathogens cause millions of infections annually in the U. S. and Canada. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that food-borne diseases cause illness in an estimated 48 million people every year, resulting in 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 fatalities.
The AutomationDirect line of sensors now includes capacitive proximity sensors with potentiometer adjustment for sensitivity. Capacitive proximity sensors allow sensing of metal and non-metal objects through insulating materials such as wood or plastic and are often used to sense fill levels of liquids or powders.
Heaters, Controls and Sensors has introduced the Model F48 1/16 DIN PID auto-tune temperature controller with Fuzzy Logic. The Fuzzy Logic plus PIM microprocessor-based controller series, incorporate a bright, easy to read 4-digit LED display, indicating process value or set point value, the company says.
In applications such as calibrating sensors atop a fermenter tank or smoke stack, using the cloud-based JofraCloud calibration software from Ametek STC, all set points and readings in between can be done remotely.
Winters Instruments of Toronto has extended its 5-year warranty to cover all products effective immediately. This includes all pressure gauges, thermometers, pressure transmitters, pressure switches, temperature sensors, diaphragm seals, valves, thermowells and all accessories.
