More than three times as many engineers and technical professionals were signed up eight weeks before ISA Expo/2000 and IMS Expo 2000 than were registered two months before 1998's show. ISA, the international society for measurement and control (Research Triangle Park, N.C.), speculates this year's 500 early registrants may indicate increased attendance beyond the 25,000-28,000 expected at the co-located shows on Aug. 21-24 at New Orleans' Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Visitors can attend both shows with one registration.

More than 750 companies are exhibiting at ISA Expo and IMS Expo. ISA Expo's technical conference features 30 training sessions and topical lunches.

  • To reduce installation time and still maintain accuracy, Krohne (Peabody, Mass.) has launched two new two-wire level products that can be integrated into intelligent process control systems. BM 702 radar level gauge is a two-wire Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) device and BM 102 reflex radar level gauge is a two-wire Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) device. www.krohne.com
    ISA Expo/2000 booth 2117

  • Otek Corp. 's (Tucson, Ariz.) new 900 I.S. line of current loop controllers have high and low setpoints that measure and compare a current loop to a setpoint to turn on or off isolated solid-state relays or LEDs. 900 I.S. can mount in line with any 900 I.S. Series device to create measurement and control systems with 4-20 mA output for DCS, SCADA, or computer systems, or it can run as a standalone on a 4-20 mA loop. www.otekcorp.com
