Ultrasonic Flow/Temperature Converter combines accuracy, efficacy.

December 22, 2014

Delivering <0.5 Lph resolution with 20-year life from one AA-size, Li-ion battery, SoC-packaged TDC-GP30 includes 32-bit, low-power (77 µA/MHz) microprocessor that provides calibrated flow and temperature data via firmware with UART, SPI, or pulse output. Solution offers integrated amplitude measurement, ultrasonic measurement frequencies up to 4 MHz, and up to 31 zero crossings that allow measurement of high dynamic flows and prevent manipulation of water meters.

Video Extensometer performs non-contact strain measurement.

December 22, 2014

Able to adapt to normal fluctuations of environmental conditions in lab and compatible with testing machines that uses ±10 V analog input, AVE 2 measures both modulus and strain to failure for diverse materials. Fully integrated device, which utilizes real-time 490 Hz data rate while achieving 1 micron accuracy, reduces errors from thermal and lighting variations common in most labs and can be used for strain measurement with Digital Image Correlation (DIC).

Electromagnetic Flow Meters contain no moving parts.

December 19, 2014

Designed for use with conductive liquids in 1–12 in. pipe, FMG980 Series has no moving parts, making it suitable for use in dirty applications where debris would foul mechanical meter. CE-compliant insertion flow meters are also suitable for difficult applications with changing viscosities and pulsating flows, such as air-driven diaphragm pumps. Choice of materials, including stainless steel, brass, and PVC allows meters to adapt to range of temperature, pressure, and corrosive environments. Read More

Continuously Self-Testing GFCI exceeds 2015 UL requirements.

December 19, 2014

Pass & Seymour® Self-Test GFCI tests itself every 3 sec. Upon failure, red light flashes to indicate need for device replacement. SafeLock™ Protection feature automatically disconnects power to receptacle if it detects that critical components are damaged and protection is lost, and automatic shutter system helps prevent improper insertion of foreign objects. Tamper-resistant device is available as 15 A/125 V or 20 A/125 V duplex receptacles, both with dual-direction test and reset buttons. Read More

Digital Oscilloscopes offer triggering and decoding option.

December 19, 2014

With R&S RTx-K9 option, R&S RTE and R&S RTO oscilloscope users can analyze CAN interfaces that support high-speed CAN FD bus protocol. Hardware-based decoding helps quickly find errors, accelerating design verification and commissioning. Users can trigger directly to telegram start, telegram stop, and data values and use search and navigation function to find relevant events in CAN FD bus protocol. Decoded telegrams are displayed as color-coded bus signals in waveform diagram or as table. Read More
