Technology Assistance BCNA 2010, S. L. Takes Part in FP7 European Research Project CROSS-IT


19 December 2011, Barcelona, Spain – Technology Assistance BCNA 2010 S. L., a start-up company and its project partners have announced the launch of the European Seventh Framework Project ‘Smart Conditioning Monitoring and Prompt NDT Assessment of Large Concrete Bridge Structures (CROSS-IT)’ within the EC - FP7 'Capacities' programme under the call for 'Research for the Benefit of SMEs'. The CROSS-IT project aims to develop new technology based on Ultrasonic Guided Waves to inspect the concrete structure and steel reinforcements for dangerous levels of age-related degradation that can be caused by water ingress into surface cracks resulting in corrosion of internal steel re-bars and reinforcement. Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar will be used to locate the internal steel re-bars and reinforcement and to compliment the Ultrasonic Guided Wave technology ...

Load Sensor Tests Tree Safety


Highway engineers and horticulturalists have adapted the latest in helicopter technology to solve a critical safety problem in their own industries, tree viability. Trees can transform a roadside verge, townscape or recreation space with their beauty and their ability to capture carbon dioxide. But they also present a potential hazard: if they fall, they could block a vital highway or even kill someone. As a result, professionals responsible for trees like to test the strength of their roots, usually by fixing a sling around the trunk and giving it a good tug with a tractor ...

Miniature High Temperature Piezoelectric Accelerometer


Chatsworth, California, USA – December 1, 2011 – Dytran Instruments, Inc. has introduced the model 3316C, a high temperature accelerometer featuring a charge mode element mounted in a hermetically sealed, miniature Inconel® housing. Capable of operating at temperatures up to +900 °F (+482 °C), the Dytran model 3316C utilizes the latest in planar shear technology. In order to operate at such high temperatures, the model 3316C was designed with a unique, Dytran patented feature. Units employ a “silver window” on the top cover of the accelerometer housing, which provides oxygen access to the crystal at high temperatures while maintaining the unit’s hermetic sealing ...

Universal, Digital Sensor Output Driver with Sensor Supply


Universal, digital output driver iC-DX/DXC enables compact sensors to be assembled with NPN, PNP, push-pull, and IO link-compatible output driver options. From an input voltage of 8 to 30 V an integrated linear regulator provides the sensor electronics with a stable +5 V voltage with a 10 mA carrying capacity. The iC-DX switching output supplies at least +/-150 mA of drive current; at 200 mA minimum drive current iC-DXC is also IO link-compatible, as it has a feedback channel with a polarity monitor for wake-up detection. The integrated temperature monitor protects both devices against overtemperature and shuts down the output driver at +150 °C. An integrated reverse polarity protection circuit safeguards the sensor against incorrect wiring of the supply voltage ...

Hand Held Vibration Meter Offers Portability and Easy of Use for Periodic Routine Checks of Industrial Equipment


Columbia Research Laboratories has introduced the Model VM-300 vibration meter, a general purpose vibration measuring instrument designed for periodic routine checks of industrial equipment where portability and ease of use are required. Acceleration, velocity, and displacement measurement modes are provided, along with a number of value enhancing features. Dual power allows the VM-300 to be powered from its internal battery in the field or from an external AC adapter to save battery life in bench applications. A precision low-voltage lockout circuit prevents the VM-300 Meter from making erroneous readings due to low battery. An automatic 10 minute timeout during battery operation will not allow the meter to drain the battery while unattended. An optional printer can be connected to the VM-300 Meter for permanently recording measurements ...
