Duke University researchers are using the physics of airflows to locate gaseous leaks more quickly in complex scenarios for processing and chemical applications. See video.
A study from Flow Research projects the worldwide flowmeter market will grow from $7 billion to almost $9 billion by 2023 as the oil & gas industry continues recovering.
AW-Lake's Hazardous Area Rated Flow Sensor with a choice of either sinking or sourcing digital output and a choice of 316 stainless steel or aluminum junction box; or for areas with limited space, a version with no junction box at all.
The TASI Group has acquired Sierra Instruments, a flow measurement instrumentation manufacturer.
Researchers have developed a sensitive heat sensor that is flexible, transparent, and printable and could have potential for a wide range of applications – from electronic skin to smart buildings.
Human-robot collaboration (HRC) is becoming more common, but humans still need to be aware of their machine counterparts. Companies have developed techniques to make it easier for humans and robots to safely interact and improve plant floor productivity.
In-person training for process instrumentation and control (PIC) provides valuable training on-site for engineers, but online education can save time and money for everyone involved while giving engineers a base of knowledge they can build from.
Control Engineering's most clicked articles in April 2019 included stories about rate-predictive control, Engineers' Choice Awards, feedforward control, object-oriented programming, and more. Miss something? You can catch up here.
Flexible multi-conductor sensor/actuator cable is available from AutomationDirect in 24 AWG and 22 AWG with 3, 4 or 5 unshielded conductors, and in customer specified one-foot increment lengths.
Microflex's Pixel Signs PB series process bar displays, which make it easy to monitor virtually any process data and features an electronic bar display that uses multicolor LEDs to visualize almost any process data value.
