  • Photoionisation Detection (PID) High Sense Sensor

    MiniPID 2 HS - Ion Science, Ltd.

    Designed for OEMs, the MiniPID 2 HS high sense sensor is the latest in the range of PID sensors from Ion Science for sub-ppb level detection. The ground-breaking MiniPID 2 HS is 15 times more sensitive than the existing MiniPID 2 ppb sensor. It is capable of detecting trace levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) over a long period of time making it ideal for indoor air quality monitoring applications. It is also well suited to clean rooms, fence line monitoring, industrial hygiene, site soil and air sampling, fugitive emissions, volatile spills, law enforcement and emergency response. Delivering a dependable response to thousands of VOCs across many diverse applications, the MiniPID 2 HS is a simple plug and play sensor providing a wide detection range of 0.5 ppb up to 4 parts per million (ppm). Ion Science’s MiniPID 2 HS also features a re-designed, pneumatically sealed electrode stack for high sensitivity and a wide detection range.

  • Industry 4.0

    Micrologic

    The original Industrial Revolution, which began around 1760 which is also called Industry 1.0 was based on the division of labor and driven by steam/hydro power. Industry 2.0 was based on electric power, which was a major innovation. We are now at the edge of Industry 3.0 which has been primarily driven by Information and communication technologies (ICT) enabling both manufacturing and service sectors.The intelligent sensors of today, RFID, such ‘Cyber-Physical’ systems and the internet of things (IoT) are transforming the manufacturing sector across the entire supply chains. A key component of such changes is decentralized control: Intelligent components operate in each stage of the system through which a part, order or information moves. In this type of process, communication occurs at each step to determine what value/ information/ decision to add/ process/ implement. Decentralized control makes it easier to add/ process/ implement as needed, making it smoother to meet the increasing customer demands. Slowly but surely, we are gradually moving to Industry 4.0.Industry 4.0 is driven by smart technologies coupled with the internet of things/ services. It offers a seamless integration of various technologies such as cloud, big data, robotics, virtualization, smart devices, additive manufacturing (for example, 3D printing), and so on. It enables to connect machines, devices, and people at anytime, anywhere and at any place.

  • Solar Tracking and Pyranometers

    Sutron Corporation

    The demand for energy increased rapidly over the past few decades and the trend is not expected to stop in the near future. These made researchers focus on renewable energy sources due to the environmental pollution caused by the existing conventional energy sources. Solar energy is one of the renewable energy that has been under deep research. Unfortunately, the main problem with this solar energy is lack of efficiency. Different positions of the sun throughout the day causing the static photovoltaic modules position inefficient. This paper discusses design of two-axis solar tracking system that considers multiple input parameters such as solar radiation and photovoltaic module output power for more efficient solar tracking algorithm. Some of solar tracking system conducted by other researchers uses various types of sensors including light dependent resistor (LDR) which is not efficient and can be easily affected by external environmental factors. Instead, this paper proposes the usage of pyranometer for measuring solar radiation as one of the input parameters. The solar tracking system controlled by PIC microcontroller that collects multiple input parameters and uses developed algorithm to control stepper motor movement for optimal photovoltaic module positioning.

  • PXI Strain Gauge Simulator Module 2-Channel, 2K

    40-265-302 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    The 40-265 range consists of 6, 4 or 2 channel modules (this version is the 2-channel, 2k) that simulate the operation of a range of strain gauges making it ideal for testing strain gauge meters and a wide variety of industrial control systems. The range provides a simple way of replacing in house developed sensors with a low cost simulator having excellent performance. The 40-265 uses the same resistor bridge techniques that real life strain gauges are based on, ensuring accurate emulation under all conditions. Each simulator channel includes an independent input for the Excitation Voltage and a bridge output. The Excitation Voltage port can be driven by an AC or a DC source. The bridge circuit includes three fixed resistors and a fourth programmable resistor that can be adjusted over a narrow resistance range with fine adjustment capability and excellent accuracy. The adjustment range provided is sufficient to simulate quarter, half or full bridge circuits. The standard bridge impedances are 350, 1k, 1.5k, 2k and 3k. These modules are extremely simple to use, the variable resistor element can be programmed using a simple resistance call. The module supplies the user with the resistance value required to balance the bridge, and the resistance call to the simulator can be varied above and below this value to simulate extension and compression of the strain gauge resistor.
