Process sensing: The most common process sensor measurement is temperature and resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), and thermocouples are the most widely used sensors for industrial temperature measurements. See 11 summary tips for temperature sensor selection.
NewTek Sensor Solutions' series of spring-loaded LVDTs that provide accurate dimensional feedback for a variety of position measurement and quality assurance applications including go/no-go measurements, automotive part quality testing, roller position/product thickness control, TIR measurements and material testing under stress.
Automation can be enhanced in a number of ways whether its through improving process instrumentation or unlocking the power of the Internet of Things (IoT)
MIT researchers have designed a system that provides solar- or wind-generated power on demand using a pump that can withstand extreme heat.
Automating an existing valve instead of replacing it can save time and reduce costs.
Getting an accurate process variable measurement depends on many factors, but it must begin with the right instrumentation.
NewTek Sensor Solutions' RV series of rotary position sensors are designed to offer accurate angular displacement measurement of rotating elements such as quarter-turn ball and butterfly valves, actuators, throttles, and more.
