High Pressure and Chemically Resistant LVDTs Enhance Performance of Extensometers Used to Monitor Structural Integrity of Offshore Platforms


Pennsauken, NJ - To ensure the ongoing stability of offshore drilling platforms, the structural integrity of production risers, catenary risers, tendons and platform legs and braces are constantly monitored. Macro Sensors designed a pressure-balanced, oil-filled and double bellows-sealed LVDT assembly to enhance the reliability of multiple redundant LVDT-based extensometers mounted longitudinally around the circumference of the structural member to monitor structural integrity. The LVDTs enabled measurement of the extension of the structural members to a fraction of a microstrain. For the huge loads on oil platforms, total movement being measured is typically less than 2 mm ...

Flow-sensor for Process Technology


For the employment in process technology the latest SCHMIDT® flow sensor SS 20.260 offers three crucial upgrades compared to his forerunner. With an expanded measuring range of 0 … 50 m/s the sensor can be applied for flow rate control in a wide range of systems. Many processes require the measurement of heated gases and therefore an enhanced operating temperature. Depending on the configuration of the SS 20.260 it is up to 120 °C. The temperature can be meas-ured with an additional linear output and no separate sensor is required any more. The unit is ro-bust due to a chamber in which the sensing element is protected against impacts ...

Dual Encoder to USB Converter Allows PC Access to Encoder Data


BEI Industrial Encoders introduces the new Dual Encoder to USB Converter module. This module translates encoder position data to industry standard USB 2.0 format that can be accessed directly through a PC. Each module can handle signals from two SSI absolute encoders or two quadrature incremental encoders. An optional programmable data sample function allows users to automatically capture readings on a precise time clock. Using a simple PC interface, this module can be programmed through the USB port for number of bits with absolute encoders. For incremental encoders, count mode (X1, X2, X4), reset, preset, and preset/reset on index are programmable through the USB. Incremental encoder counter register length is programmable, up to 32 bits. The Dual Encoder to USB Converter is ideal for system setup and debugging, data acquisition, analysis, monitoring and PC based control applications ...
