Product News is but a sampling of the many, many products we've seen recently. The ones included this month reflect a trend, are different enough to make me sit up and take notice, or are nice implementations of current technology.
At the end of the section is this month's Readers' Choice, awarded to the product that garnered the most notice from readers of Sensors Express (www.sensorsmag.com/express) in recent weeks.
By the way, all the products you see here (and many more) were covered first in Sensors Express. Sign up to receive as little or as much news as you like; just select areas of interest when you sign on.
What are you waiting for?
Temperature, Process Controllers
Kaif Digital, Scottsdale, AZ, offers the wMPC Series of 4- or 7-zone wall-mount temperature and process controllers. Controllers accept a range of temperature and process inputs with inputs individually configurable for each zone. Scaling and offset for current and voltage signals are user programmable. Other features include multiple display modes, a large LED display, and a choice of multiple control modes (on/off, PID, and heat/cool). Each zone has its own ramp and soak profile or a manual set point. (480-607-3100, x-201, www.kaifdigital.com)
UV Sensor for Adhesive Dispensing
The UVX-300G from EMX Industries, Inc., Cleveland, OH, is a UV luminescence sensor designed to detect glue and adhesives in assembly and manufacturing processes. As feedback to a control system, the sensor can measure the amount of applied glue as well as check for gaps in dispensing, excess glue, and clogged nozzles. Features include 350 mm operating distance, 6 kHz feedback response time, 5 user-selectable gain settings, and readings from 0–99. (800-426-9912, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.emxinc.com)
Industrial pH Probe
SensIrOx, Inc., Columbus, OH, offers the INpHO probe for pH measurement in extreme temperature and pressure conditions. The sensor has a stable response over a wide pH range, achieved by an oxide layer deposited on an iridium indicator electrode. Should you need a combination electrode, an optional silver/silver chloride reference electrode is available, mounted in the same robust package. You can also have a polymer coating applied to both indicator and reference electrodes to decrease interference from reducing agents. (614-985-0667, email@example.com, www.sensirox.com)
