Position sensors with 400° temperature range

NewTek Sensor Solutions offers several LVDTs with an extended 400°F temperature range for use in applications where temperature spikes are possible. The high-temp, AC-operated position transducers ensure reliable position measurement without failure in applications with fluctuating temperatures where standard-temperature sensors can fail, due to deteriorating insulation and intermittent connections. For example, standard-temperature position sensors used on steam valves may unexpectedly fail when the valve is in motion due to temperature spikes caused by steam leaks. Failures also can result from hot gas outbursts or temporary exposure to opened furnace doors. Replacing these standard units with a higher temperature LVDT stops failures, eliminates bad readouts and reduces downtime associated with maintenance. Industries often specify high-temp LVDT position sensors for displacement measurement as insurance against units failing due to unexpected temperature spikes, which can be very common in industrial settings. The construction of a high-temp AC-LVDT also offers greater temperature flexibility in displacement measurement than other position sensing technologies such as potentiometers and magnetostrictive sensors.  Potentiometers rely on mechanical contact to provide position feedback, so components can wear and be affected by heat, making them noisier and less reliable over time.

Hydrogen sulfide measurements for quality and process control

Petrochemical gas processing facilities, chemical plants and the biogas industry can rely on the SulfurHound H2S in Gas Analyzer to provide accurate, dependable and cost-effective measurement of hydrogen sulfide in natural gas pipelines, gas wells and landfills for quality and process control. Accurate measurement of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in natural gas, biogas, and air is critical in meeting air quality standards, avoiding pipeline corrosion, eliminating odor and ensuring public health and safety. For example, refineries measure hydrogen sulfide to protect process equipment and ensure product quality, while gas processors monitor for hydrocarbon leaks in cooling towers, heat exchanges, and condensate boilers. Biogas, produced from the waste products of treatment plants and landfills, creates H2S that must be controlled to avoid harmful odors that emit into the atmosphere. Many traditional H2S analyzers provide slow responses, resulting in undetected failures and unnecessary downtime.

LiLz gauge safety monitoring

We’re pleased to announce that starting in July, across in the US, we will start an automated inspection service called LiLz Gauge for daily visual inspections for infrastructure. Japan faces serious problems of aged infrastructure, and this is the same in the U.S. Therefore, we started cost-effective, automated inspection service for the sake of stable operation of infrastructure in the U.S. To maintain stable operation of infrastructure, daily on-site inspections are essential. But substituting those inspections with sensors or normal IoT cameras for large plants or rural bridges requires installation work and construction, often resulting in big initial investments. LiLz Gauge requires no power supply because the camera’s battery life lasts for 3 years, and therefore ,wiring and installation work on-site are unnecessary.

The ANH2(X) is an expansion to the AnyNET-I/O product line from AMCI. The concept of this product line is simple: specialty and/or high speed I/O that can be attached to any popular industrial network; hence the name AnyNET-I/O. AnyNET-I/O is designed for a broad range of applications, from small machines with a single control enclosure, to large machines that use distributed I/O extensively to minimize wiring costs. What makes the AnyNET-I/O line different is that modules are available with or without a network interface. Eliminating the need for a separate networking module lowers the total cost of ownership for all applications, but especially for the cost sensitive small machines that only require one or two sophisticated functions. Like many modern controllers, AnyNET-I/O modules are designed to be DIN rail mounted.

AC-LVDTs serve as alternatives to magnetostrictive sensors

NewTek AC-operated LVDT position sensors often serve as a more reliable, precise and cost-effective alternative to magnetostrictive linear position sensors in the monitoring and control of valves in power generation and hydroelectrical stations. Because power generation environments can reach temperatures of 250°C (475°F), magnetostrictive technology might fail or become inaccurate over time. While very accurate in benign applications, most magnetostrictive sensors cannot operate over 85°C as electronics must be placed very close to the wand. With electronics separated from the LVDT coils, NewTek’s AC-operated linear position sensors continuously operate in power generation stations without failure at high temperatures. While the LVDT sensor remains in a harsher environment, NewTek’s NTC-6000 LVDT Signal Conditioner (which excites the AC-operated LVDT and provides a variety of output options for use in PLCS and other control systems) operates in a less innocuous environment.

LVDT position sensors for critical energy sector applications

The energy sector uses NewTek LVDT Position Sensors as metrology tools in ensuring the proper operation of different power systems. For example, position sensors monitor gas turbine servo controls, fuel valve position, and micro fuel valve openings in the operation of gas turbines. To reliably perform in these critical applications, NewTek often customizes its LVDT displacement sensors to meet customer’s sometimes non-standard operating parameters. By tailoring sensors to operate within specific specifications, customers do not need to conduct expensive design reviews of standard position sensors or worry about meeting safety regulations and codes. To conform an LVDT to meet the needs of a critical application, NewTek can expand temperature ranges, tighten impedance specifications, and use different sealing methods and housing materials such as Inconel, Hastelloy and Titanium. For applications with high shock and vibration levels, NewTek can vacuum varnish and epoxy encapsulate an LVDT position sensor. For environments with extreme temperature ranges such as those in engine control systems, NewTek can construct its displacement sensors with ceramics and special core materials to meet temperature requirements up to 1000°F.

CDV Index Score

The CDV Index is a method of quantifying and evaluating an industrial facility’s preparedness, resiliency, risks, and progress of addressing digital incidents, threats and compromises that can negatively impact production, operations, environment, and lives. Factors to be considered can include age, severity, depth, criticality, segmentation among mitigation actions. Evaluation is necessary due to the longer life cycle of industrial systems, controllers, and sensors, along with limited purpose processing devices, including IoT; which lacks the capabilities of endpoint protection, patch updates and security authentication controls. A CDV Index Score tells management and insurers about the relative status of the connected devices in an industrial facility. It is calculated by using information gathered from the network supporting the connected industrial equipment. The score is calculated at a point in time and can change due to circumstances such as devices added, software updates, new vulnerabilities issued, segmentation and other mitigations incurred. Securing your CDV Index score begins with an accurate inventory of connected devices compiled with data from your network. Each asset requires a vulnerability search issued for each individual device and software/firmware levels.

CDV Index

The CDV Index is a method of quantifying and evaluating an industrial facility’s preparedness, resiliency, risks, and progress of addressing digital incidents, threats and compromises that can negatively impact production, operations, environment, and lives.   Factors to be considered can include age, severity, depth, criticality, segmentation among mitigation actions. Evaluation is necessary due to the longer life cycle of industrial systems, controllers, and sensors, along with limited purpose processing devices, including IoT; which lacks the capabilities of endpoint protection, patch updates and security authentication controls.   A CDV Index Score tells management and insurers about the relative status of the connected devices in an industrial facility. It is calculated by using information gathered from the network supporting the connected industrial equipment. The score is calculated at a point in time and can change due to circumstances such as devices added, software updates, new vulnerabilities issued, segmentation and other mitigations incurred.  .

TwinCAT Cogging Compensation for AL8000 linear motors

The highly dynamic AL8000 linear motors from Beckhoff now meet even greater requirements for accuracy and synchronization with the new TwinCAT Cogging Compensation software. This makes the linear motors particularly suitable for high-precision applications such as milling machines or laser cutting machines. The cogging compensation software makes use of machine learning, which is seamlessly integrated into TwinCAT and applied on a fully automated basis (Engineering TE5920, Runtime TF5920).Beyond eliminating cogging forces in the AL8000 motors themselves, TwinCAT Cogging Compensation software accounts not only for magnetic effects but also factors related to mechanical design or energy chains.

Mantis Robotic Trim Press Handler

BMG announces the Mantis Robotic Trim Press Handler from NAS Nalle Automation Systems, the industry’s first robotic automated system that reliably handles the flow of parts ejected from any trim press. This compact, intuitive, and configurable system enables full automation of the entire thermoforming process — from resin to palletized product — for medium to high volume production lines using either non-servo continuous flow or servo-driven long eject trim presses.Previously, parts ejected from non-servo trim presses needed to be manually separated and counted, a labor-intensive, error-prone, and inconsistent process that limits the automation of downstream packaging functions. NAS solved this problem with the patent-pending Trim Press Receiver (TPR) which uses a unique separating mechanism to count and contain stacks of product, followed by a raking mechanism to take the product into the receiver for transfer by the robot. The TPR presents the parts to a six-axis robot equipped with product matching End of Arm Tooling that in turn automatically transfers the product to a Shuttle Station, which integrates with downstream packaging functions that may include wrapping, boxing, case packing, sealing, and palletizing.

AC-LVDTs

NewTek Hermetically-Sealed AC-operated LVDTs enable safe position measurement in high-risk areas to protect operators from harm. Constructed without internal electronics, AC-operated LVDTs operate reliably in industrial applications with high, low or unpredictable temperature fluctuations, shock, vibration, and chemical, or radiation exposure. While the AC-operated LVDTs operate in a hostile area, feedback is retrieved by an LVDT Signal Conditioner that converts it to a digital signal for use in a computer or programmable logic controller located in a benign area.  For example, LVDT Position Sensors used in the process control systems of paper mills provide dimensional feedback on the tension arm or roller position to control product thickness. The paper mills pose dangers to operators with larger rollers moving at high speeds, caustic and corrosive fluids splashing in unpredictable places, and temperatures fluctuating at different points in the process.  Legacy mechanical position inductors or dial indicators used for position measurement may require an operator to approach the measured object. In addition to risking exposure to hazardous conditions, measurements may be hard to access in tight spaces or close to operating machinery.

LVDT Position Sensors

NewTek Pre-calibrated Linear Position Sensors serve as long-term replacements for potentiometers (pots) that become unreliable over time due to their contacting operation and effects from vibration and other environmental parameters. As potentiometers rely on mechanical contact to provide position feedback, components wear out and are affected by heat, vibration, and humidity, making output progressively noisier and unreliable over time. Non-contacting and with no parts to wear out, NewTek LVDT Position Sensors offer frictionless operation and do not drift or get noisy even over extended periods. The excellent repeatability, temperature resistance, and resolution of LVDTs are critical for industrial applications that require measurement of very small movements such as TIR measurements, thermal expansion, and dimension quality.  (see chart and caption) Challenging operating conditions such as high shock and extreme temperatures also can limit a potentiometer’s performance and reliability. As a result, Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) is typically lower for a potentiometer operating in a moisture-free and low vibration environment, than an AC-operated LVDT Linear Position Sensor working in a demanding application.
