WORM Temperature Sensor Installs in Any Thermowell

A maintenance technician???s dream: The WORM flexible sensor installs without removing the transmitter enclosure, thermowell or union components.

WORM Flexible Sensors LogoNORTH HILLS CA, USA???In both new and retrofit applications, WORM Flexible Sensors replace restrictive straight sensor probes with a universal sensor strategy that saves time and money. Its unique patented rugged flexible design installs in minutes, with response times faster than any other standard straight sensors, with all popular RTD and thermocouple configurations available.

With straight sensors, the connection head and thermowell assembly components must be removed to install a rigid sensor.

The WORM, on the other hand is flexible; bends around and through the top or face of the enclosure. It slides through the enclosure???s entry port, and snaps into place without removal of the enclosure, rigid conduit, connection head or any assembly components.

A WORM sensor can be installed in minutes, using a pair of pliers and wire cutters. The installer simply determines the proper length, cuts the WORM spring accordingly, slides the spring over the sensor wires, snaps a cap/clip on the end, and slides the assembly into the thermowell, enclosure or transmitter head. Spacers are supplied to keep the assembly straight.

Arch Rock Primer Pack

Arch Rock Primer PackSan Francisco CA, USA — Arch Rock Primer Pack is a complete, out-of-the-box wireless sensor network (WSN) that allows for the rapid development and deployment of pilot networks.

The Primer Pack monitors environmental conditions such as temperature, light, and humidity from onboard sensors. Expansion ports and pre-integrated sensor drivers allow users to easily augment their sensor nodes by choosing from thousands of different external switches, sensors, and relays to create uniquely tailored wireless networks.

A Web-based interface lets users add an external sensor without having to write embedded software on the sensor nodes. Where ultimate flexibility is required, all of the Arch Rock software sensor capabilities are available as Web Services and accessible through a variety of popular and standard application development environments.

It is simple enough to be deployed in an hour, yet sophisticated enough to be seamlessly integrated into enterprise applications as a set of standards-compliant web services.

Logginet Temperature and Process Data Collection

LogginetMississauga, Canada — Temperature and process data collection is one of the more important tasks in a processing plant, yet is probably one of the more irksome a processor has to do for his HACCP-plans, according to Scott Process Equipment & Controls Inc..

What makes it so awkward and troublesome is that a variety of different tasks such as room temperatures, smokehouse or autoclave procedures, and product temperatures have to be recorded in various forms and combined to establish a comprehensive report on the plant’s activities.
