Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Technologies announced the availability of the new Low Noise (LN) series of panel mounted solid state relays designed for use in a wide range of consumer and industrial systems and products where precise power control, long life, reliability and reduced levels of electromagnetic noise are required.

Instead of using moving components as mechanical power relays do, solid state relays rely on silicon-controlled rectifier technology which allows SSRs to provide quieter operation (no clicking), longer life, as well as more precise switching control.

Safe Inspection of Natural Gas Plants

Safe Inspection of Natural Gas Plants

FLIR System's GF620 Optical Gas Imaging camera is helping inspectors to remotely survey for fugitive gas emissions from safer distances than is possible with lower-resolution OGI cameras.

The GF620 is equipped with a 640x480 infrared detector, the camera is calibrated to measure temperature, allowing the user to assess the thermal contrast between the gas and the background scene, and adjust it to improve visibility. 

The FLIR GF620 also features the company’s unique high sensitivity mode, which accentuates plume movement to improve detectability...

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

The FLIR GF346 Optical Gas Imaging Camera is designed to detect even the smallest Carbon Monoxide (CO) leaks. Able to scan large areas rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time, the GF346 is ideal for monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers. Using a FLIR GF346 safeguards personnel from the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning, reduces repair downtime and provides verification of the process. And above all it is exceptionally safe, allowing potentially dangerous...

How Optical Gas Imaging Tools Promote a Culture of Safety

How Optical Gas Imaging Tools Promote a Culture of Safety

An in-depth article from FLIR Systems describes how its GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera can be used to more quickly and safely identify hydrocarbon gas venting to the atmosphere in order to reduce product loss and help meet regulatory emission reduction requirements.

In addition to regulatory compliance issues, high level of hydrocarbon gas emissions equates to significant lost product for oil and gas operators.

As a consequence, the oil and gas industry have been looking at how to best find and repair natural gas leaks at...

Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

FLIR Systems GF306 optical gas imaging camera has been designed to address the challenge that electrical power stations face in detecting gas leaks from their Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) circuit breakers.

The longer a leak from a SF6 circuit breaker is left undetected and not repaired, the more revenue is lost, and the greater the impact on the environment from the electrical power station.

By using a portable, non-contact FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera - electrical power engineers can remotely visualize SF6 leaks from a safe...
