  • PXI Strain Gauge Simulator Module 6-Channel, 1k

    40-265-206 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    The 40-265 range consists of 6, 4 or 2 channel modules (this version is the 6-channel, 1k) 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.

  • Seismic Sensor

    D7S - Omron Electronic Components

    Specifically designed for the growing number of autonomous IoT systems, the Omron D7S provides high precision measurement of spectral intensity, allowing it to reject impulse vibration noise and only respond to genuine seismic activity. Despite its compact size, D7S features its own internal memory and I2C interface, allowing it to be readily integrated into IoT devices. Potential applications include smart electricity and gas meters, wireless sensors, industrial control panels, electricity distribution panels, fire-prevention systems, home appliances such as heaters and gas stoves, chemical plants, expressways, bridges, tunnels, roads and many more. Commenting, Fabrizio Petris, Senior Business Development Manager of Omron Electronic Components Europe said, “Earthquakes are extremely common around the world. On average, 50 earthquakes strike each day, or about 20,000 a year. Many are weak enough to go unnoticed but some are catastrophic. We can’t always predict when a catastrophe will strike. Using the new sensor from Omron, designers can make systems safer and minimise the risk of secondary damage after earthquakes by safely shutting off and stopping hazardous devices. The sensor can also help determine damage by mapping seismic intensity and providing building collapse information.”

  • 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.

  • Power Cell Power Transducers for Wide Ranging AC/DC Loads

    PH-3A and PH-1000 - Powertek LLC

    You can know the load on an electric motor by measuring the electric current going to the motor (Amps). But, this is not the best way to do it since a lightly-loaded motor doesn't use the electricity very efficiently. (In technical terms, the power factor is low.)A better way to know the load is to measure the motor power. (Power is measured in Horsepower or Watts.) Motor power gives you a straight line so it works well even when the motor is lightly loaded.The Power Sensors that we make measure the motor load (Horsepower or Watts) and send a signal to meters or computers. The operator can see what the status is on the meter or, the computer can make decisions.

  • Platinum RTD Sensor - PT100 - 3 Wire 1 meter long

    Adafruit

    For precision temperature sensing, nothing beats a Platinum RTD. Resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) are temperature sensors that contain a resistor that changes resistance value as its temperature changes, basically a kind of thermistor. In this sensor, the resistor is actually a small strip of Platinum with a resistance of 100 ohms at 0C, thus the name PT100. Compared to most NTC/PTC thermistors, the PT type of RTD is much most stable and precise (but also more expensive) PT100's have been used for many years to measure temperature in laboratory and industrial processes, and have developed a reputation for accuracy (better than thermocouples), repeatability, and stability.

  • Portable Trace-Level O3 Calibrator

    Model T753U - Teledyne Advanced Pollution Instrumentation

    The Model T753U is a portable, microprocessor based precision Calibrator for Ozone gas instruments and sensors. Using a sophisticated Ozone generation system, combined with a sensitive photometer and pneumatic design, the T753U produces stable and reliable concentrations of Ozone in a convenient and rugged package based on our popular T750/U Portable Multigas Calibrator platform. The T753U is housed in a high-density, molded travel case which includes an integral handle and wheels for durability and ease of use in the field for virtually any application. An internal zero air option extends the T753U's capabilities to also provide a clean and dry source of zero air, eliminating the need for a separate source of zero air. The internal zero air source module contains a software driven electronic inlet valve manifold allowing the calibrator to automatically switch between internal and external zero air sources depending on the application needs.The T753U operates in two modes; a high range, and a low range, or "fractional" mode, for producing accurate Ozone levels down to 2 ppb which meets the latest US EPA calibration requirements for Trace-level Ozone gas instruments. The mode is automatically selected based on the Ozone concentration range chosen by the user. To ensure high accuracy and stability of the Ozone output, the calibrator constantly measures the Ozone concentration being produced with an internal photometer and uses it to actively control the Ozone generator in real-time. The internal photometer can be certified by another external Reference Standard by simply using the 'photometer input loop' located beneath the fold up panel. The T753U Portable Ozone Calibrator combines performance and convenience for the most demanding applications.
