Omega’s NEW Temp Sensor-Transmitter: M12TX

OMEGA EGINEERING Introduces M12TX Temperature Sensor-Transmitter With 100 ohm RTD in Probe


M12TX1- showing Transmitter with SS Probe Connection

Stamford CT, USA — Omega’s new M12TX temperature sensor-transmitter features a sensor with a built-in signal transmitter that is programmable by a computer.

It has a molded connector (IP67), M12 connection, 4 to 20 mA output and a -50 to 500 °C (-58 to 932 °F) temperature range.

The temperature Sensor-Transmitter is designed with 316L SS mineral insulated cable probe (MgO) which enables the probe to have a minimum bend radius of three times its diameter. Continue reading

Night Vision & Thermal Optics 2014

15 – 17 September 2014 | London, UK

nvlogoLondon, UK — Night Vision and Thermal Optics 2014 discusses the challenge of identifying and acquiring targets in low-light and no-light environments that is being faced by global armies, navies and coast guards.

The paramount requirement for I2 applications is enhancing the ability to identify targets in challenging conditions, in addition to simply acquiring them.

The challenge is to strike a balance between this and the subsequent fusion of I2 and IR technology. How can such a balance be achieved?

Superframing Technique of Thermal Images

Increase the Dynamic Range of an Image

S-F_FlirMeer, Belgium — The FLIR Systems proprietary Superframing technique has been developed to extend the effective scene brightness of a thermal image while maintaining its thermal contrast.

Although most thermal cameras can produce high-contrast images showing small temperature differences, they can only do so within a defined temperature range.

However when extreme temperatures appear within a scene, the hottest parts of the image will be saturated and the coldest parts will appear black or noisy, resulting in a loss of image detail and invalid temperature measurements.

This is a particular problem in R&D applications when imaging high-speed digital video of scenes with large temperature differences such as engine monitoring, rocket launches, or explosions.

Thermal imaging makes night-time driving safer for motorcyclists

Rugged | Simple | Affordable | Optimized for driving uses

PathFindIR II

PathFindIR II

Online  –  Thermal imaging cameras produce a crisp image in the darkest of nights. It makes them excellent tools for a wide variety of applications.

FLIR’s PathFindIR II builds on the success of the original PathFindIR by adding a unique nighttime pedestrian detection feature that can be configured to automatically display alarms to alert drivers when the system detects a person or animal nearing or crossing the vehicle’s path.

In recent years, thermal imaging cameras like the FLIR Systems PathFindIR II are also being integrated in cars for driver vision enhancement.

But what about motorcycles? Continue reading

Africa & Asia Deploy Infrared Scanners At Airports To Detect Ebola Symptoms

Bangkok, Thailand –  Asian nations are using thermal imaging cameras and posting doctors at airports to screen out sick travelers as health authorities scramble to avert any outbreak of the Ebola virus that has killed almost 1,000 people in West Africa.

Health officials in Thailand, which received a record 26.5 million tourists last year, are monitoring 21 visitors from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. The officials said they had no plans to quarantine the visitors. Continue reading

Reproducible Evaporation of Environmental Samples

Running an EZ-2 ENVI evaporator is as simple as 1, 2, 3

Genevac EZ-2 ENVI

Genevac EZ-2 ENVI

Ipswich, UK & Stone Ridge NY, USA  –  The EZ-2 ENVI from Genevac is designed for gentle evaporation of volatile environmental samples, such as pesticides, and is proven to give excellent recovery and reproducibility.

The system is fully automated, can concentrate a number of samples at the same time and provides protection from cross contamination and bumping.

Over the last 25 years, to safeguard sample integrity during rapid and safe evaporation, Genevac has pioneered the development of a range of innovations including SampleGuard temperature control, the Dri-Pure anti-bumping system and most recently the unique SampleGenie technology.

The ingenious patented design of SampleGenie enables the EZ-2 ENVI to productively concentrate environmental samples to less than 1ml without losing any volatile analytes. Continue reading
