The EcoStruxure™ augmented operator advisor software brings together physical, real-life objects with virtual objects to increase operational efficiency, reduce costs, and improve proactive maintenance. The system’s interface gives operators access to information in the field for operations and maintenance. It allows for fast diagnosis without lockout or electrical qualification and provides opportunity for safe and rapid detection of abnormalities and access to key performance indicators. The plug-and-play architecture works on tablets such as iOS® and has Android™ and Windows® versions in progress. It uses a Windows-based PC as the server platform. The system can be used in mining, minerals and metals, water and wastewater, food and beverage, and infrastructure. It also can be adapted for any industrial domain.
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (Wilmington, Mass.); www.wmftg.com
The Qdos pump has mobile and remote applications and can be powered by a 12-24V DC power supply that can boost productivity and cut chemical waste via more accurate, linear, and repeatable metering than conventional solenoid or stepper-driven diaphragm metering pumps. Users can reduce chemical costs even when metering difficult fluids, or when pressure, viscosity, and solids content vary. This capability combines with peristaltic technology to ensure precise, continuous, smooth flow for optimal fluid mixing.
Digi International® (Hopkins, Minn.); www.digi.com
The Digi IX14 router provides reliable, efficient, low-cost IoT connectivity for devices located in rugged, demanding environments. The system contains an LTE modem capable of 3G fallback for North America, and a soon-to-be-released version will support 3G/2G fallback for Europe. The system has been physically hardened to withstand extreme environmental conditions with MIL-STD-810G certification for shock, vibration, and temperature, and an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance.
Industrial Scientific (Pittsburgh, Pa.); www.indsci.com
The RGX Gateway enables designated safety contacts to receive real-time alerts for gas hazards, panic, and man-down situations happening in plant or in the field. A live map shows the location of workers and current conditions, therefore improving response times and arming emergency personnel with critical information. The system is compatible with Ventis® Pro Series Multi-Gas monitors and Radius® BZ1 Area monitors. Through the LENS™ wireless instrument-to-instrument mesh communication system, the monitors share gas readings and alarms with one another and the RGX gateway. The gateway then transmits readings through cell, Wi-Fi, or Ethernet to iNet® Now Live monitoring software, which alerts key team members within seconds of an incident.
MSA Safety (Cranberry, Pa.); www.MSAsafety.com
The X5000 and S5000 gas monitors tracktoxic and combustible gas in a wide range of hazardous industries. These detectors feature Bluetooth® wireless technology and now can connect with the company’s X/S Connect App, which is available for both iOS Android® devices. Users can wirelessly access the gas monitors from as far away as 23 m (75 ft) using a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet.
Ozone generation system
Aqua-Aerobic Systems Inc. (Loves Park, Ill.); www.aqua-aerobic.com
The Aqua ElectrOzone® M-Series ozone system is designed for smaller installations seeking the advantages of system modularity and built-in redundancy. Each ozone system is configurable in 15 lb/d increments up to 540 lb/d. The technology eliminates the challenges that lead to dielectric failures found in other ozone generators and includes a limited 10-year dielectric warranty in most municipal applications. Additional features include simple installation and operation, modular ozone cells, integrated process control, and silent operation.
Emerson (Rosemont, Ill.); www.emerson.com
The SolaHD SDN 16-12-100C power supply is designed for use in harsh environments and hazardous locations worldwide. The 12-Vdc power supply has all the same features as the legacy SDN 16-12-100P it replaces and is 27% narrower to take up significantly less space on a DIN rail. The power supply addresses the needs of factory automation, petrochemical processing, chemical facilities, wastewater treatment, material handling, and more. The system meets extensive international certifications including UL, CSA, CE, Class I Zone 2, ATEX, IECEx, ExEAC, ABS, and DNV-GL to ensure global compliance, even in hazardous locations and off-shore applications. For critical applications, two units of SDN 16-12-100C can be used in conjunction with the SDN 2X20RED redundancy module to provide redundant power supply operation.
Sherwin-Williams (Cleveland, Ohio); www.sherwin-williams.com
The Sher-Loxane 800 is a versatile, high-performance, polysiloxane coating. It offers enhanced durability and aesthetics as well as cost savings by eliminating one step of the overall coating system. The smooth, finished product delivers long-term asset protection in the most aggressive service conditions. It also resists attack from mold, mildew, and algae in immersion service. The cured coating’s low surface energy prevents organic growth from taking hold, maintaining aesthetics and a high-gloss finish for steel and concrete applications including water tanks and chlorine contact chambers.
Nidec Motor Corp. (St. Louis); www.nidec.com
The TITAN® II WPI and WPII 449 frame vertical motors are available in both HOLLOSHAFT® and solid shaft constructions. The TITAN II 449 frame offers a redesigned upper bracket for better environmental protection. The 449 lower brackets also have been redesigned to allow stiffer attachment of the motor to the pump head. This overall stiffer construction has raised its reed critical frequency (RCF) on average 12%, with multiple p-base options (20 in., 24.5 in. and 30.5 in.) to allow altering the RCF for the best variable speed pumping system design to stay out of the resonance region. The redesign of the upper and lower brackets also allows a change to the airflow to better cool and increase motor efficiency.
Diagnostic Inspection Tool
CUES Inc. (Orlando, Fla.); www.cuesinc.com
The REDI Kit features a high-resolution web camera for two-way video conferencing to expedite troubleshooting and enhance parts identification, a diagnostic test box for easy access to the TV cable conductors via test points, a built in mini-camera, which is used to send video back thru the TV cable and truck, and much more.
NewTek Sensor Solutions (Pennsauken, N.J.); www.newteksensors.com
The RV series of rotary variable differential transformers (RVDT) rotary position sensors offer highly accurate angular displacement measurement of rotating elements such as quarter-turn ball and butterfly valves, actuators, throttles, and dancer arm tensioners used in industrial machine-to-machine applications. With a shaft that rotates a full 360 degrees with no stops and virtually no friction, these AC-operated rotary position sensors measure shaft angle position over a nominal range of ±30 degrees. RVDTs are known for reliability and ruggedness in extreme environments, with a non-contacting design, which gives the sensor extremely long operational life by eliminating components that wear or degrade over time. The units operate over a temperature range of –65°F to 220°F and exhibit a linearity error of less than 0.5% of full range.
AMREL (Los Angeles); www.amrel.com
The versatile AT80 can be used as a mobile tablet, an onboard vehicle terminal, a wall- or equipment-mounted smart control, or as an integrated solution. The system is ideal for manufacturing facilities, industrial settings, field operations, or any enterprise operating in a harsh environment. The system’s unique channel design enables quick integration of other modules or devices without full development costs. Based on an aeronautical design, its single billet, one-piece aluminum chassis can withstand extreme environmental conditions including heat, cold, humidity, water, dust, vibration, and drop.
