Sensing and Telemetry News
Metron VIEW is now able to send you alarms by email if a reading from a sensor goes above or below pre-defined thresholds, or if a unit has not unit has not communicated with the Metron VIEW server for a certain amount of time.
To help you choose the right sensor for your application you can now use this product search tool, directirng you to the right product to suit medium (liquid, gas, glycol), power supply, flow rate, supply voltage, output type, connection type, temperature range and ATEX category and then taking you to the data sheet.
The SPS series of affordable level sensors suit a wide range of applications and offer simple installation and long term stability.
Available in a variety of measurement ranges these sensors have a sturdy stainless steel body and use the well proven hydrostatic method of level measurement offering excellent accuracy at a very reasonable price.
These sensors work really well with our Metron2 device to provide you with a great way of reading the level in oyur tank both locally and remotely.
Users of Metron VIEW can now retrieve their data and build their own web applications using the API that we have introduced. As ever with the Powelectrics suite of M2M products it's pretty straightforward to use and we are finding suitably skilled developers are making light work of it.
The new LLGT 081 laser micrometer is a high-resolution laser line fork light barrier that can be used to detect and analyse even minimal dimensional deviations. A special lens projects a fine, parallel laser beam onto a high-resolution CMOS line.
The fork design of these units eliminates the need for time-consuming alignment of the transmitter and receiver.
The 1st device of this family has a 25mm measuring range and a separation distance (emitter to receiver) of 80mm. The device has a resolution of 20µm.
Machine to Machine (M2M) is here to stay, whether it be smart metering, data collection for compliance reasons or inventory management. This ‘Internet of Things’ telemetry technology offers rapid payback, delivering operational, environmental and financial benefits, from cutting delivery miles, to reacting in good time to warnings of machinery breakdown, leakage, theft, run-outs and safety breaches. Powelectrics award-winning solutions are proven globally, in businesses as diverse as parcel distribution, propane gas, cryogenics and the water industry.
