Reinforced grill

Tech Byte: will the reinforced grill affect measurement? downloadweblink

IRISSThu, 26 Mar 2015

You are correct when you state that the grill will affect your measurements. In fact, all infrared (IR) window lenses affect the transmission rate of the target temperature. Regardless of the type of IR window you are using, you need to test and adjust your IR camera for the transmissivity of the lens material you are using. This value can vary by camera even if it is the same make and model of camera. This is due to differences of the detectors in the IR cameras.

Technical report: demands on sensors and readers in conveyor and storage systems downloadweblink

Leuze ElectronicTue, 24 Mar 2015

As Leuze electronic explains here, the ongoing automation in many industries is constantly facing new challenges resulting from the required flexibility. In order picking as well as in production and further processing, widely varying goods follow in direct succession. As a result, it must be possible to quickly and easily change over and adapt today’s machines from large series with identical objects to individual products — ideally in an order-related, not batch-related manner.

Technical article: how to ensure sensors operate in extreme environments downloadweblink

Sherborne SensorsThu, 12 Mar 2015

According to Mike Baker at Sherborne, sensors will often be called upon to operate in extreme environments, withstanding effects such as heat, mechanical stress/shock and vibration, as well as working within areas of electromagnetic interference. Under these conditions, it is vital that sensors are able to maintain a consistently high level of accuracy and reliability.

Visual inspection

Tech Byte: don't forget the walk-around downloadweblink

IRISSMon, 9 Mar 2015

As IRISS explains in this Tech Byte, visual inspection of plant equipment is one of the most useful tools available. A good set of eyes and the ability to see subtle changes in equipment is invaluable. For more than two decades, predictive maintenance (PdM) technicians have used best practices to walk around equipment seeing, smelling and listening before they open their PdM toolbox and begin an infrared, ultrasonic or vibration inspection. A new drip pattern on the floor, a change ...

White paper: a new approach for on-site calibration of voltage transformers downloadweblink

OMICRON electronicsTue, 10 Feb 2015

Voltage transformers (VTs) are used in electrical grids for metering and/or protection purposes. The high requirements regarding their precision demand a calibration of the objects before installation. The accuracy classes of VTs are different for protection and metering transformers and are classified depending on the maximum ratio and phase-angle error between the vectors of the primary voltage and the secondary voltage related to the primary side.
