TWO Neutrino™ Camera Series - Performance & SWaP+C

TWO Neutrino™ Camera Series - Performance & SWaP+C

The performance series includes two new models; the FLIR Neutrino OX and Neutrino SX12. Ranging from 1.3 to> 3.1 megapixels, this series includes the highest resolution MWIR camera from FLIR.

The new compact and lightweight Neutrino LC, with its high operating temperature (HOT) focal plane array, sets the standard for SWaP+C. Neutrinos are ideal for commercial, industrial and defense applications. Built from the ground up for integrators, they are easy to integrate, making for shorter time to market.

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

FLIR Systems GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers quick, non-contact measurement of gas leaks in real time. Using its unique High Sensitivity Mode the camera is able to set a new superior standard for gas leak detection performance. High Sensitivity Mode is based upon an image subtraction video processing technique that effectively enhances the thermal sensitivity of the camera. The HSM feature subtracts a percentage of individual pixel signals from frames in the video stream from the subsequent frames, thus enhancing the differences between frames, which make leaks stand out more...

Quantifying Methane Leaks & Flares

Quantifying Methane Leaks & Flares

FLIR Systems GF-Series Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are being used by the oil and gas industry to quantitatively measure methane emissions and create a datum point for future methane reduction calculations. FLIR Systems, in partnership with Providence Photonics, has developed Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, which is designed to work exclusively with FLIR GF-Series OGI cameras. Quantitative OGI represents a critical step forward in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.

Picomag - Economical Pocket-Sized Flowmeter

Picomag - Economical Pocket-Sized Flowmeter

The new pocket-sized electromagnetic Picomag from Endress+Hauser simultaneously measures the flow and the temperature of electrically conductive fluids. It is a cost-optimized solution for utility applications where the focus is on high repeatability (±0.2% o.f.s.) and thus reliable measured values – e.g. to correctly measure water flows (max. 750 l/min, 198 gal/min) or to minimize energy costs.

Due to its compact design, it can be installed into any pipe up to 50 millimeters (2") in diameter, even in confined spaces. In addition, it offers intuitive commissioning with Bluetooth...

A Compact Proximity Sensor Built to Last in the Most Extreme Environments

A Compact Proximity Sensor Built to Last in the Most Extreme Environments

Emerson presents the TopWorx™ GO™ Switch model 52M, a low profile, dry contact, proximity sensor with a 316L stainless steel sensing face in an industry standard 12mm package. The temperature ranges from -40°C to 100°C and it’s suitable for IP69K applications. The 52M does not require power to operate and is polarity insensitive with zero need to specify NPN or PNP circuits and maintains the ability to be a plug-and-play replacement for inductive proximity sensors. 

Features & Benefits

Can operate in large...

3 Solutions to Increase Maintenance Safety & Efficiency

3 Solutions to Increase Maintenance Safety & Efficiency

10-15% of fatal workplace accidents occur during maintenance operations according to EU-OSHA. Occupational diseases and health problems such as asbestosis, cancer, hearing problems and musculoskeletal disorders are also more prevalent among workers involved in maintenance activities. Brady proposes 3 solutions to help make maintenance safer and more efficient.

Professional safety printers: print self-adhesive safety signs and instructional labels and apply them to machinery before they are serviced. Optimally...

Prevent slips, trips and falls

Prevent slips, trips and falls

Slips, trips and falls can result both in fatal and non-fatal workplace accidents and they are one of the most frequently occurring accident types. 36% of EU companies acknowledge an increased risk of slips, trips and falls in their workplace according to EU-OSHA. To decrease the risk, we propose a number of reliable and highly visible safety identification solutions.

Floor marking: easily identify safe walking routes, obstacles and hazardous areas in the workplace. Safety signs: a simple safety sign can prevent costly workplace accidents if it is clearly visible, draws attention...
