Digital Thermometers for iPads


Aginova Inc., a sensor technology company, announced today it is launching iCelsius Pro, a product that extends your iPad by using a temperature probe that turns iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a digital thermometer. The app downloaded from the App store will read the temperature, create graphs, set up alerts, store data and email graphs. Temperature is typically measured using some type of thermometer, usually one containing a liquid like mercury or alcohol and in thermal contact with substance being measured and measured in Fahrenheit or Celsius. As compared to these thermometers iCelsius Pro reacts quickly to changes, thereby measuring temperature changes rapidly ...

New Tape Extension Position Sensor


ASM Sensors, Inc. has expanded its POSITAPE® line of tape extension position sensors with the introduction of the WB12 series. The POSITAPE® sensor line was especially developed to extend sensor life in applications that require pulleys. The new WB12 sensor provides a measuring range of 118 inches. The industrial grade position sensor WB12 is constructed with a custom designed stainless steel tape which is coiled on a precision drum. With its high degree of flexibility, the measuring tape yields an extended life of the sensor. It is perfectly suited in applications that require pulleys due to the tight locations where the sensor must be installed. Since the tape also has very smooth surfaces, the risk of icing is reduced during cold operating conditions. The integrated tape dust wiper automatically cleans the tape during operation ...

Submersible Compression Load Cell Resists Freeze-Thaw Weathering


Applied Measurements have just designed and manufactured a special version of their compact CCG annular load cell (also known as a ‘ring load cell’ or ‘donut load cell’) for use in a particularly tough application where it is submerged 1 meter deep in potable water, subjected to a force of 160 kN (~16 tonnes) and subjected to a repeated cycle of freezing and thawing. The load cell design utilises 17-4PH stainless steel for the sensing element and cover in conjunction with a stainless steel IP68 cable gland, submersible polyurethane cable and a double ‘O’ ring sealing system to ensure that the transducer’s integrity is maintained at all times ...
