This category covers:
Instruments and devices used by engineers to determine the scope, quantity or extent of a particular item; to assess that it meets certain criteria; or investigate whether it is in proper working order. Includes environmental testing, vision, sound and vibration testing, position and proximity testing, force strain and speed testing, electrical testing, non-destructive testing and metrology systems.
Omega Engineering offers the TL-10 series of temperature labels. The labels feature 10 silver dots, each representing a different temperature. As their corresponding temperature is reached, the dots change colour permanently from silver to black.

Today’s machine builders confront a new era of risks, as globalisation increases competition and the internet rapidly disseminates information about products and markets. The highest priority for designers of performance-driven machinery is to reduce the various risks confronted across the machine design, development and maintenance lifecycle.
The measurement of moisture in natural gas is an important parameter for the processing, storage and transportation of natural gas globally. Natural gas is dehydrated prior to introduction into the pipeline and distribution network. However, attempts to reduce dehydration result in a reduction in ‘gas quality’. Consequently, to strike the right balance, it is important that the water component of natural gas is measured precisely and reliably.
In order to maximise the performance of sensors, attention should be paid to the selection of the humble cable that connects the sensor with its instrumentation. As this article in the ‘Mike Might Know’ series from Sherborne Sensors explains, sensors — particularly those based upon strain gauges — have very low levels of output often in the micro-volt region. Noise pick-up must be minimised to ensure accurate results.
A new tip-tilt mechanism based on low-voltage piezoelectric actuators has been designed by Cedrat Technologies to answer the high level of stability required for the Earthcare satellite. The Beam Steering Assembly aims to deviate a pulsed high-energy UV laser beam to compensate for misalignment between the emission and reception paths of ATLID with a very high stability and resolution.
There exists a dangerous misconception regarding the ‘arc rating’ of infrared (IR) windows or viewing panes. Many reliability and maintenance professionals are under the impression that an IR window will protect them in the event of an arc blast; still others are under the impression that installing IR windows will turn non-arc-rated switchgear or electrical equipment into ‘arc-rated’ cabinets. Neither are the case and both misconceptions must be corrected because they present very ...
For many automated fluid dispensing processes, high-speed jetting technology is a new and innovative alternative to traditional, needle-based contact dispensing. Because high-speed jetting is non-contact (the jet valve never contacts the product or surface), it offers a higher degree of flexibility and can be used in a wider variety of applications that otherwise would require a costly Z-axis system with height-sensing and positioning functionality. True high-speed jetting is made possible ...
Dave Manning-Ohren, conditioning monitoring manager at ERIKS, looks at the various options and their specific benefits for your operations.
Many different types of inertial sensor technology will deliver similar outputs. Yet each technology is optimised for use in specific environmental conditions and applications, and not all inclinometers are created equal. As this article in the ‘Mike Might Know’ series from Sherborne Sensors explains, it is important to understand the technology employed within the sensor in order to adhere to best practice when installing it.
