ifm electronic has launched a new multi-function vibration sensor that provides a comprehensive real-time condition monitoring solution for electric motors and other simple machines. Benefits include cost-effective continuous monitoring of equipment, early warning of potential problems, elimination of unnecessary routine maintenance and reduced downtime.
Today’s process and control sensors are benefitting from important technical advances enabling users to explore and develop new control concepts, especially for automation applications.
The electricity that lights our homes and powers our appliances also creates small magnetic fields that are present all around us. Scientists have developed a new mechanism capable of harvesting this wasted magnetic field energy and converting it into enough electricity to power next-generation sensor networks for smart buildings and factories.
Factory automation continues to develop year on year and pumps are increasingly required to supply real time operating data to control networks so that their performance can be monitored and adjusted to meet constantly changing production requirements.
The DGC-06 controller series from MSR-Electronic is used for monitoring and warning of toxic and combustible gases and vapors as well as in the Freon refrigerant sector of the gas measurement technology.
Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has introduced an interface module that expands the range of connectivity options available for its sensors and measurement systems.
Berg Insight, the world’s leading M2M/IoT market research provider, today released new findings about the market for connected public spaces – a group of smart city applications that enables improved management of public spaces within cities – including smart street lighting, smart parking, smart waste collection and smart city surveillance.
Tieto, a leading software and services company and a member of the ST Partner Program, and STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, announced their collaborative efforts to develop Central Control-Unit (CCU) software to run on STMicroelectronics’ popular Telemaco3P platform.
STM32WB50* Value Line wireless microcontrollers (MCUs) from STMicroelectronics are a full and pin-compatible derivative of the STM32WB55 System-on-Chip, created to serve cost-sensitive connected devices that need to support Bluetooth® 5.0, ZigBee® 3.0, or OpenThread.
An innovative TorqSense wireless torque sensor from Sensor Technology provided an effective solution to an interesting engineering challenge when Advanced Design Innovations (ADI), a specialist supplier of custom manufacturing and testing equipment, was asked by Bristan, one of the UK’s largest and most successful manufacturers of bathroom taps and showers, to develop a new durability test rig to help optimise product performance.
