Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced that its ControlEdge Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) has received ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) Level 2 certification by exida, the ISO 17065 accredited certification body who conducted the assessment. The certification recognizes the integrity of both the PLC and its development lifecycle, and includes rigorous communication robustness testing as well as functional and software development security assessments.
The international FRABA Group's main production facility, located in Slubice, Poland, has been in operation for ten years. The factory, which has been recognized for its striking architecture, was designed from the outset for small-batch/high variability production of precision industrial position and motion sensors.
Redline Instruments has 18 years combined experience in product design and applications in the gas and oil industry. Primary products include multi-channel monitors, alarms, and sensors to detect unwanted gas leaks. Products include hydrogen sulfide (H2S), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) sensors.
Process and plant engineers responsible for optimizing combustion or pre-heated air to large boilers, stack environmental emissions monitoring and reporting (U.S. EPA CEMS), or flue gas/scrubber balancing, will find an optimal solution in FCI's family of multipoint thermal flow meters. Designed specifically for flow measurement in round pipes or stacks of 12 inches [300 mm] and larger diameter, and square or rectangular ducts with cross sectional area of 100 inches [250mm] and larger, the model ST102A Flow Meter and the new MT100 Series Flow Meters from Fluid Components International (FCI) provide two to eight non-clogging, no moving parts sensing points that ensure superior accuracy repeatability and reliable operation.
With their intelligent design, precision accuracy and excellent reliability, the family of modular S80-T80 Liquid Analyzers from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD)provides engineers and managers with the consistent process data they need to obtain and maintain a wide range of global, regional and local quality, environmental, safety and other certifications, as well as achieve government regulatory operational compliance.
GrayWolf Sensing Solutions has introduced a new, branded 6-channel Particulate Meter which optionally incorporates sensors for additional environmental parameters such as Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Temperature and Relative Humidity. This wall-mounted monitor, a modified version of the portable PC-4005 introduced last year, displays and logs calculated particle mass concentrations while simultaneously displaying and logging all installed optional sensors.
Probe Technologies Holdings, a supplier of logging and reservoir monitoring technology to the global oil and gas and geothermal industries, announced that Turnbridge Capital has completed a growth recapitalization of the Company alongside its experienced management team. Federico Casavantes continues leadership of the Company as its President & Chief Executive Officer, while Gary Cresswell has joined to serve as Executive Chairman of Probe.
With the introduction of a new spring-loaded frame to the Han-Modular building block system, Harting is making it even easier and faster to create a modular connector that precisely fits each application. The Han-Modular lineup now includes over 100 different modules for power, data and signal that can be combined virtually without limitation.
With robust metal contacts that can be plugged and unplugged at least 10,000 times, the new Han Pneumatic Module Metal from HARTING presents another significant cost- and space-saving opportunity to use connectors to streamline flexible production processes with high mating cycles. The Han Pneumatic Module Metal can withstand pressure up to 10 bars, covering the entire low pressure range. This compares with an upper limit of 8 bars for the existing Han Pneumatic Module with plastic contacts. With pneumatic modules, users can route compressed air feed through the same connector along with power and signal lines rather than having to set up and maintain a separate compressed air connection for drive units, control units, brakes, holding and unloading units and much more.
The compact, inline ultrasonic Bronkhorst ES-FLOW from Hoskin are Volumetric Liquid Flow Meters/Controllers for very low flow ranges. The instruments operate on an innovative measuring principle, using ultrasound in a very small, straight tube. A wide range of liquids can be measured independent of fluid density, temperature and viscosity.
- Low pressure drop
- Insensitive to vibration
- Hygienic design
- IP67 rating
Seeq Corporation announces the availability of a Seeq connection module for Inductive Automation's Ignition SCADA system. The new Seeq integration module simplifies integration of Seeq Workbench into Ignition displays and server gateways. Ignition customers in many process industries use Seeq Workbench to rapidly find insights in their data leading to better production outcomes including improved asset availability, product quality, and process efficiency.
Badger Meter now offers the Blancett B3100 Series flow monitor, a flexible, durable, easy-to-use digital signal processing platform for demanding flow metering applications. The B3100 flow monitor incorporates advanced options with user-friendly full operation through the glass. Data logging, and remote data access and programming are available without opening the enclosure. Programming software makes remote configuration easy and efficient.
H.G. Schaevitz LLC dba Alliance Sensors Group introduces the S1A AC-LVDT Signal Conditioner that offers smart and fast LVDT setup with built-in null indication and simple front panel pushbuttons to set zero and full scale. Engineered to work with the widest range of AC-LVDTs, RVDTs and inductive half-bridge sensors including 3-wire GE LVRTs and GE gas turbine LVDTs with the buck-boost, the S1A DIN rail module supports LVDT operation and indicates most common failures.
