Dewetron & Dewesoft on show at Sensors & Instrumentation

New products from Dewetron & Dewesoft on show at Sensors & Instrumentation include SIRIUS fan-less data acquisition systems, designed for harsh environments where cooling is often an issue. Dewesoft increases channel density with the 16ch SIRIUS HD range for voltage and strain gauge measurements, which can also be integrated into a system with up to 128 channels.  Dewesoft have also introduced SIRIUS high-speed modules with a sample of 1MS/s and 16bit resolution, in the same SIRIUS packaging, so 200KS/s modules can be mixed with 1MS/s modules for maximum measurement flexibility. Dewetron have developed LabVIEW drivers to support their range of signal conditioning and data acquisition products. This will be attractive to system integrators and existing Dewetron customers who are experienced in LabVIEW programming and want to access the high performance capability of Dewetron hardware for specific applications in industrial control. The Dewetron DEWE2 range of data acquisition platforms will also be featured at the show and combined with Dewesoft-7 software, DEWE2 systems offer a range of front-end modules with 200KS/s sampling rate and precise signal conditioning for a wide range of sensors, including high voltage measurements with galvanic isolation.

Chell Instruments at Sensors & Instrumentation, Stand A27

Chell provides complete solutions to sensing problems using over 40 years of experience in measuring and controlling Pressure, Vacuum and Gas Flow. Very often the measurement is relatively easy once the most appropriate sensor is selected, it is the collection and manipulation of the data that causes most difficulty in providing the solution.

Four generations of Air Ingress Monitors have provided solutions to the Power Generation industry. It computes leak rate by calculation from absolute and differential pressure and temperature then compares the result with the Steam Tables to output Air Ingress, the greatest source of inefficiency (& therefore waste emissions) in the power generation cycle.

Chell has built several Gas Flow Audit Standards used by those holding the UK National Standard to verify and compare data with their standards – this work has led to the design of multiple channel calibration systems for manufacturers of gas meters.

Aerodynamic pressure measurements are often made using electronic pressure scanners and Chell has specialised in the application of this technology to industries such as Formula 1, aircraft constructors and gas turbine manufacturers. This latter has become so significant, it has led to the development of a complete range of multi-channel tubulation quick disconnect couplings – one user has even flown an engine so equipped.

Michell Instruments launch cost effective oxygen analyzer at Sensors and Instrumentation

Experts in moisture and oxygen analysis, Michell Instruments will be launching their new oxygen analyzer to the UK at Sensors and Instrumentation.

The compact and cost-effective XZR200 offers a great blend of price and performance.  It is capable of measuring percentage oxygen to better than 1% of Span (or 0.5% O2) with ranges of 0-25% and 0-100% available. The XZR200 is easy to install and integrate into existing systems as no specialist software is required; the RS232 output can be accessed via a PC.

The analyzer offers four configuration options, with two choices of probe length and two temperature ranges. The lower temperature range (up to +250°C) is suitable for relatively low-temperature applications such as food and drink packaging, while the higher temperature range of up to +400°C serves combustion control and metal treatment applications.

Depending on the application, the XZR200 may also be configured to measure in either 0-25% or 0-100% oxygen concentrations. The first configuration gives the highest accuracy of 0.5% O2 in the combustion process range. In the 0-100% range the accuracy is 1% O2.

Also at the stand will be Michell’s high-speed portable hygrometer, the MDM300. This is available in both hazardous and general purpose versions and has a number of convenient sampling options to enable users to connect the instrument to high-dust or contaminated processes as well as ensure comparable measurements across a number of sample points by ensuring the flow etc of the gas sampled is consistent each time.

Michell’s Easidew Dew-Point Transmitters are ideal for a host of applications where constant monitoring of moisture levels is key – such as compressed air systems and dew-point control of desiccant dryers. All Easidew Transmitters are available as part of a calibration exchange program, which enables users to keep up-to-date calibration certification with virtually no downtime and at a fraction of the cost of buying new replacement sensors.

In the relative humidity range, the I7000 interchangeable module makes maintenance as easy as changing a light bulb, while the PCMini52 RH probe has encapsulated electronics which make it reliable in high humidities over long periods of time. Visit stand B7 to find out more.

 

TMS Europe at Sensors & Instrumentation

Infrared technology has been utilised in a range of applications for many years, but has only recently become a viable method of measurement, with the increased availability of more affordable and reliable products.

Following the interest received at last year’s Sensing Technology Exhibition 2012 we are pleased to announce that we’re exhibiting at this year’s Sensors and Instrumentation Exhibition. We are attending to showcase a range of non-contact measurement instruments and to promote our comprehensive range of products and UKAS accredited calibration services.

Non-contact infrared measurement has, up until now, been overlooked as being too expensive but in recent years it has become a viable alternative for environments where traditional contacting thermocouples fail.

As companies start to realise the potential of non-contact thermometry we are increasingly finding it being utilised in Research and Development, Human and Veterinary Medicine, Cryogenics and in manufacturing processes such as food, steel, glass and ceramics. To extend its concept of one stop shopping for temperature measurement TMS Europe has increased its products and calibration for infrared non-contact temperature measurement, giving practical and affordable solutions through specialist manufacturers SATIR and DIAS Infrared GmbH for whom we are agents. This is reflected in the choices our customers are making, and they are now opting for infrared systems as a long term and sustainable solution for the measurement of the extreme temperatures in areas where contact thermometry is impractical.

After gaining another year’s experience with infrared we’re eager to get back to the NEC to promote ourselves as your all-in-one resource for the supply, installation and calibration of infrared systems. Over the past year we’ve supplied, installed and trained customers with effective infrared systems that enable faster, safer and un-interrupted measurements. In 2013 alone we’ve taken on two major contracts for well-known companies for the supply of Infrared systems using products from the specialist manufacturer DIAS Infrared GmbH. We’re more eager than ever to show off what we can bring to the table. 

With over thirty years of experience in the industry we have inspired confidence in our customers by providing them with tailored measurement solutions. As a major manufacturer and supplier of temperature probes, thermistors, resistance thermometers and thermocouples measuring temperatures from -200 to 2000°C, for over thirty years our expertise in manufacturing, calibration and test we have the ability to produce these products to the most rigorous of specifications, whilst offering costs which sees a number of O.E.Ms using our services on a contract basis.

At the exhibition we will be featuring one of the world’s premier manufacturers of Infrared technology; DIAS Infrared GmbH, and will be demonstrating the capabilities of their range of Infrared Pyrometers, Line Cameras and Thermal Imaging Cameras, with working examples of the Pyroview camera. Also at our stand will be representing another leading manufacturer in the field of contact-less temperature measurement SATIR and their range of Infrared and Thermal Imaging cameras. We will also have samples of lower cost hand-held thermometers and non contact temperature measurement instruments for attendees to trial.

Additionally, with one of Europe’s leading ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratories for infrared, we want to offer our calibration services for non-contact thermometers and pyrometers for calibration between a range of –30 and 1500°C. Our calibration facilities don’t just stop there, on a daily basis we are UKAS calibrating and performing on-site and in-lab humidity and temperature surveys on autoclaves, ovens, incubators, furnaces, fridges, freezers and a range of other hand held measurement equipment and sensors. TMS Europe calibrate to national and international requirements, meeting the specifications of food, water, pharmaceutical, aerospace, medical and many more.

Industrial Interface’s complete range of Ethernet input and output modules

Industrial Interface will be exhibiting their complete range of Ethernet input and output modules at the Sensors & Instrumentation exhibition at the NEC in September.

The units allows virtually any type of sensor or signal to be galvanically isolated and transmitted to any industrial Ethernet, RS232 or RS485 network. A typical system consists of an E-100 with an Ethernet port and a number of ISOSLICE input or output modules linked to the E-100 via a local bus.

The field sensors are wired into the ISOSLICE units which are in turn read by the E-100 gateway via the local bus and the values then stored in Modbus registers on the E-100.

ISOSLICE units are available for mA, voltage thermocouple, RTD, load cell and AC current or voltage signals. In total up to 1024 inputs can be linked to the E-100 and stored in Modbus registers.

The E-100 has a small in-built LED display which can be used to view the values of any inputs in real engineering units, a great commissioning and trouble –shooting tool.

The data stored on the E-100 can also be sent via either a 2G or 3G mobile network using the RAMPORT-DIN device.

For more information on this unique low cost solution and our range of wireless systems and sensors please see www.industrialinterface.co.uk or visit us on Stand Number B5 at Sensors & Instrumentation.
