80 GHz radar vs. Ultrasonic Level Measurement Comparison

  • White Paper

When it comes to non-contact continuous level measurement, radar and ultrasonic are two of the most common technologies used. This paper will compare and contrast 80 GHz radar sensors with ultrasonic transmitters for liquid and solid level measurements.

What is the Difference Between Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave (FMCW) and Pulsed Wave or Pulsed

  • White Paper

The two types of non-contact level radar, Pulse Level Radar and Frequency Module Continuous Wave (FMCW) Level Radar have been widely used throughout the process industry.

Improving the Efficiency and Reliability of Water Systems with Variable Speed Pumps and Pressure Sen

  • White Paper

Distributing water on a large scale has been a challenge that the world has tackled for decades. It is a particular challenge in high-rise buildings, and with a trend for designers to build up in urban areas, rather than out, it is a challenge that has become a new focus for design engineers.

How Robots Change The World: What automation really means for jobs and productivity

  • White Paper

The robotics revolution is rapidly accelerating, as fast-paced technological advances in automation, engineering, energy storage, artificial intelligence, and machine learning converge. The result will transform the capabilities of robots and their ability to take over tasks once carried out by humans.

Webinar: Exposing Cybersecurity Total Cost of Ownership

  • Webinar

This presentation shares a unique definition and perspective on Cybersecurity TCO (total cost of ownership). We will expose the unexpected costs of loss with a cyber incident, as well as both the cost savings and value-add to the organization by investing in cybersecurity early.

Smart Transmitters Enable Smart Sensors

  • White Paper

Instrument transmitters became smart by integrating digital technologies, paving the way for instrument sensors to acquire a similar level of intelligence. As we move into the future, digital technology will continue to provide more information from instruments.

What is An Energy Audit?

  • White Paper

The aim of an energy audit is to reduce usage and improve performance.  It is becoming a standard practice for large industrial locations as well as smaller operations

Data Protection Best Practices

  • White Paper

Protecting sensitive data created, stored and consumed by sensor-driven Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology and applications is one of the foundations of trustworthy IIoT systems.

Monitoring Mechanical Behavior of Reciprocating Compressors

  • White Paper

By Istec
In this whitepaper we focus on the mechanical health and behaviour of reciprocating compressors with four important indicators; impact, temperature (valves and bearings), vibration and rod drop. Table 1 shows the typical measurements for reciprocating compressors.

Direct Drive Linear Motors: Overview and Selection Process

  • White Paper

To help make the process of selecting linear motors simpler, we’ll start by explaining the mechanics of a direct drive linear motor and contrast it with a more traditional indirect drive system.
