Some applications use a modular approach to temperature sensing while others must be built from scratch. Fortunately, there is no shortage of temperature sensor options to solve even the most complex problems.
Most people who purchase personal computers buy fully configured and assembled units. This is especially true for computer buyers who plan to use them for everyday tasks like word processing or surfing the web.
Duct-mounted EE850 measures CO2 concentration up to 10,000 ppm (1 percent) as well as relative humidity and temperature. Suited for use as process control, the three-in-one sensor has a dewpoint temperature and a passive temperature output.
Pac Series allows users to select among 18 sensors models for the detection of up to 33 gases. The monitors can detect standard gases such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and oxygen as well as special gases such as ozone, phosgene and nitrogen dioxide.
Wireless technologies that serve as the backbone of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are gaining wider use in the global food manufacturing industry. The goal of IIoT technologies is to automate the collection of data across operations and improve processes within a processing plant. An enterprise that uses more advanced analysis of its data will see operational improvements and cost savings.
The service sector is on the cusp of change. New technologies and key trends may affect — and improve — how your facility receives process plant maintenance and other services. Three technologies show promise to optimize service delivery via the use of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies.
Model PSC-PMB-Solocan be connected directly to an RS485 Modbus SCADA system or PLC. Networkable, the noncontact temperature sensors can measure and monitor the temperature of many locations on the same network.
Condensation is the most common variable in liquid-level applications, and it can degrade the measurement signal strength of most ultrasonic sensors. EchoPod Reflective-Ultrasonic level sensors work in condensation.
Thermalert 4.0 provides automatic, noncontact temperature measurement in harsh industrial environments. Intended for use with temperatures of -40 to 4082°F (-40 to 2250°C), the pyrometer series comprises 13 models with varied spectral responses, including dedicated sensors for metals, glass, plastics, paper and food products.
Risk can take many forms in food-and-beverage processes. From proper hygiene standards for employees to regular calibration of instrumentation on critical processes, there are dozens of ways that process owners can mitigate risk to avoid potentially costly or hazardous results.
