Sulphur Chemiluminescence Detector.

PAC’s AC Analytical Controls is launching the next generation SCD (Sulphur Chemiluminescence Detector), “SeNse”, to the market.

SeNse SCD positions itself as the best performing SCD in the market, combining an excellent stability with a 0.3 pg/s S sensitivity as key specifications, without using oxygen. SeNse uses air instead of oxygen.

SeNse also displays excellent linearity, has a superb selectivity and a true equimolar response that easily outperforms any FPD/PFPD.
It is a total redesign of the Antek 7090 SCD. Completely new optimized ceramics, electronics, and a true constant flow (by pressure point) in the detector base allow for ultra-stable baselines, providing ultra-low lower detection limits. The SeNse also provides the ability to execute GC maintenance (e.g. changing insert or septum) without switching the detector off, significantly reducing instrument downtime.

The large touch-screen and automatic leak check routines make controlling SeNse very simple. SeNse is independent of GC or Chromatography Data System. For now, it can be mounted on Agilent 6890/7890A/B systems, with different platform support to be added in near future.

The SeNse complies with key standard methods such as ASTM D5504 and D5623.

Firmware for Thin Clients.

Seeking to further enhance flexibility in process automation, R. Stahl HMI Systems is introducing more powerful new integrated software for series 500 Thin Clients for hazardous and industrial areas.

The new, Windows 10 IoT Enterprise-based firmware version 5.0 for Remote HMIs can be adapted to suit all display sizes featuring 1024 x 768 pixels or higher resolutions. At the same time, it increases user-friendliness and reliability of the Thin Clients for the remote operation of DCS installed on central servers or virtual machines. RDP 10 and RealVNC 5.3 and Emerson's DRDC, widely used in the process industry, are available as protocols for failsafe remote access. Integrated network diagnostics and the watchdog function for monitoring the data connection as well as the dual Ethernet support contribute to the high degree of transmission reliability. As protection against manipulation attempts, the software has modern USB and keyboard filters such as EWF lockdown, which reliably prevents registry or file system changes and restores the system's initial configuration after each reboot.

The user-friendly interface with improved touch operation and a clearly structured menu has received a modern make-over. All relevant information on the current connection status, such as IP address, transfer rate, user registration and system information is readily displayed on the dashboard. Multi-screen support is also available for improved visualisation of processes and menu structures. Network connections to all associated workstations can be easily established via the address book menu. Display brightness adjustment and a cleaning mode option can be touch-activated.

The hardware of R. Stahl's Thin Clients also feature superior performance compared to competing HMIs. Thanks to their Intel ATOM series quad-core processor clocked at 4x1.91 Ghz, their 64 bit architecture and 4 GB of RAM, the devices are four times as fast as their predecessors in the same R. Stahl HMI series. Intel VT hardware support of the processor makes them ideal for virtualisation environments. The integrated HD graphics chip supports DirectX 11.1 and ensures excellent display quality throughout, even with very dynamic process images.

Variable speed drive helps tissue manufacturer.

A leading manufacturer of tissue and paper-based consumer products has upgraded to Control Techniques Unidrive M variable speed drives.

UNIDrive M700 Family
Soffass SpA, based in Porcari (I), is part of the Sofidel group of companies. It produces a range of products including Regina, as well as a wide selection of other products aimed at the global consumer tissue paper market. These include toilet paper, kitchen towel, napkins, paper tablecloths, handkerchiefs, facial tissues and sheets for medical and industrial use.

The company is a long-term user of Control Techniques variable speed drives. However, with mature products such as Commander SK and Unidrive SP moving into the next stage of their lifecycle, the benefits of upgrading to the latest industrial AC drive technology, Unidrive M, were clear.

Unidrive M is capable of fully replacing and enhancing Commander SK and Unidrive SP installations. It offers full mechanical compatibility in terms of dimensions and weights, and when retrofitting surface mount drives existing mounting holes can be reused, negating the need for additional drilling. Furthermore, Unidrive M offers the same power and control wiring philosophy and the same menu and parameter structure. Indeed, parameters can be transferred from Unidrive SP and Commander SK using Unidrive M Connect software, or via a smartcard (Unidrive SP only).

The maintenance team management at Soffass, lead by Giuliano Dinelli (Maintenance Manager) and Luca Manfredini (Electrical Engineer), was keen to tap into the extra benefits offered by Unidrive M, and were able to do this quickly and easily thanks to a number of key design features.

“Previously we used Commander SK and Unidrive SP drives with the SM-Applications and SM-Safety modules, and even though we knew these products would continue to be supported for the next 10 years at least, we thought it provided a good opportunity to take advantage of Unidrive M,”  he  said. “As a result of the upgrade we now use Unidrive M200 drives for asynchronous motor control in the conveyors, and Unidrive M700 drives in the remainder of the applications.”

Among the principal uses for Unidrive M at Soffass is the embosser, where paper veils are matched together to make the final product thicker and softer. The drives also control the print units, as well as the winder/unwinder, which delivers materials to further stages of the process.

“We have complete trust in the Unidrive M platform and wanted to upgrade for many reasons, not least the ease of programming, set-up, commissioning and cabling,” says Mr Dinelli. “Furthermore, we liked technical features such as synchronous Ethernet, on-board AMC and the multi-protocol encoder connector. This multi-axis system with multiple controls is the perfect fit for our converting machinery at Porcari. In total, we have now purchased around 100 Unidrive M drives from Emerson.”

Such has been the success of the upgrade programme that Soffass is now considering the use of additional products from Control Techniques and its sister company, Leroy-Somer, in future projects. Specifically, the company has earmarked the adoption of permanent magnet (PM) motors as they can offer energy savings in equipment such as paper mills, where power requirements are typically high.

“We like Control Techniques because its products are reliable and easy to use,” concludes Mr Dinelli. “In addition, Control Techniques has supported us in the design and development of the machines, and responded positively to our demands in terms of throughput and budget.”

User group for LIMS success.

Users of Autoscribe Informatics’ Matrix LIMS (Laboratory Information Management Systems) recently attended a busy User Group Meeting in Oxfordshire (GB). Presentations from users and Autoscribe technical specialists were interwoven with live link-ups to Autoscribe experts at a number of locations in the US to provide a varied perspective on current and future uses of Matrix.

The key theme that ran through the meeting was the flexibility provided by the Matrix Gemini configuration tools to allow users to organise their LIMS to their exact needs. There were some enthusiastic presentations from users in vastly different industries who were carrying out all of their own configuration.

Autoscribe specialists contributed a number of useful hints and tips on the use of configuration tools to build checklists, forms or task lists and the use of bulk sample registration. Another session focused on ways to reduce the number of steps required for users to interact with Matrix in order to decrease the number of decisions needed and minimise the chance of making mistakes.

Autoscribe Informatics President, John Boother, commented: “It was a very enjoyable day and very rewarding to see many of our customers so actively embracing the use of our configuration tools. All of the systems we saw today looked very different and yet all use exactly the same underlying code that forms Matrix. Because each individual system has the same code, Autoscribe can support all of our customers’ own configurations provided they have an annual support contract with us – they don’t have to rely on us to configure their system for them.”

“It was also significant that our very first customer for the Autoscribe Matrix V2 system was there to make a presentation,” he continued. “Having purchased Matrix twenty years ago, and having had a regular maintenance contract, they have benefitted by automatically receiving each new iteration of Matrix as it has evolved over the years without ever having to purchase a new system, and are now running the latest version, Matrix Gemini V5. That level of commitment from a customer is testament both to the continuing quality of the product and the importance we attach to customer satisfaction.”

ICE Box-PC building block system!

Rugged computing is a must for lots of new IoT, M2M and Big Data applications deployed in extreme environmental conditions. Hardly any embedded computing hardware, however, is equipped to operate in minus 60°C, let alone - 100 °C or to be immersed in water. To enable passively cooled standard hardware to nevertheless be operated in such extreme environments, ICOP Technology has developed the ICE Box, a new modular building block system with IP67 protection (majorly hosting PC-104 form factor boards inside) and active heating, which automatically activates if the temperature drops below a configurable minimum temperature (standard value is -20 C).”

Owing to the modular build of the building block system, OEMs can order their individual ICE Box-PCs in numerous different configurations. Any required system configuration can be ordered from batch sizes of just one, including individual I/O covers and laser engraving of the housing and can be delivered within one week after specification approval. Applications can be found in outdoor, vehicle and marine deployment, as well as in refrigerated warehouses.

Amongst the standard components, which ICOP Technology offers for the ICE Box-PC building block system with passive cooling and active heating, are around 20 different standard CPU components with SFF, low power DM&P Vortex86 processor technology, power supplies as well as numerous I/O extensions for Ethernet and wireless (IoT) interfaces, USB, digital and analog I/O, fieldbuses as well as motion control applications. The interfaces can be mounted on the front or back panel according to requirements, paving the way for highly individual OEM configurations. The ICE-104 building block enclosure is suited for OEMs without MOQ needed.

Customers opting for ICOP Technology’s systems with DM&P Vortex86 processors profit from a rich, established ecosystem which has been developed over decades and can be immediately deployed. Besides these extremely energy-efficient x86 processors – which are equally suited to new IoT applications and long-tail deployments including ISA support – there exist countless special “off the shelf” solutions which still have to be developed for comparatively less established processor technologies. OEMs can also expect a much more stable expansion of the ecosystem, the advancement of DM&P Vortex86 processors caters for the long-term requirements of industrial computing with x86 technology and not for commercial mainstream demands, where tomorrow completely different features could be relevant.

Boosting sugarcane delivery at Thai plant.

A Control Techniques Unidrive M600 variable speed drive is helping a major sugar plant in Thailand to guarantee the efficient delivery of sugarcane between processes.

First established in 1946, Mitr Phol Sugar Corp is the largest sugar producer in Thailand today, the biggest in Asia and the world’s fourth largest, producing 2 million tons of sugar a year from its various plants. To help produce this much sugar, Mitr Phol has to process around 20 million tons of sugarcane. At its Phulaung plant (in northeast Thailand), the company recently opted to replace the drive on its principal variable speed sugarcane conveyors to help meet demand.

“We have used various drives for this application in the past, but were attracted to the closed loop control of the Unidrive M600 with SI-Encoder module, as well as the low harmonics,” explained Mr Wanchai, the plant’s electrical & automation manager.

The SI-Encoder module features incremental encoder input to provide closed loop rotor flux control for induction motors (RFC-A) in Unidrive M600 applications.

“This is vital as the equipment is conveying sugarcane to each process station, including the crushing station,” said Mr Wanchai. “We need to run at full capacity, particularly during September to March, which is when the sugarcane comes into season. Any downtimes during these months can very damaging to the supply of sugar in the off-season.”

Another principal reason for selecting Unidrive M was its task-based commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance, which in turn helps minimise downtime at high-volume plants such as Mitr Phol.

“Unidrive M600 allows us to greatly enhance performance. For instance, we now have better overload torque (180% for 3 seconds) in RFC-A mode. Moreover, we reduced downtime from 1-1½ hours to just 30 minutes by using Control Techniques’ commissioning software tool Unidrive M Connect.”

Unidrive M Connect is the latest drive configuration tool from Control Techniques for commissioning, optimising and monitoring drive/system performance. It uses graphical tools that enhance and simplify user experience, although, for experienced users, dynamic drive logic diagrams and enhanced searchable listings are also present.

“We received highly responsive technical support during of pre-sales and after-sales from Control Techniques and local partner Contrologic throughout the process,” concluded Mr Wanchai. “We certainly plan to incorporate additional products from Control Techniques into our business moving forwards.”

Hygienic conductivity sensor.

The Memosens CLS82D conductivity sensor for production, process development and laboratory applications in the pharmaceutical, food, life sciences and other industries has been . The four-electrode sensor measures conductivity from 1 µS/cm to 500 mS/cm and temperature from 23 to 248 °F (-5 to 120 °C) with accuracy of ≤4% and repeatability of 0.2%.

For hygienic applications, the CLS82D has 316L stainless steel construction, electropolished surfaces that are easy to clean, hygienic process connections and IP68 protection, and it can be sterilized in place (SIP) at temperatures up to 284 °F (140 °C) for clean-in-place (CIP) operations. The CLS82D is certified for EHEDG, FDA, 3-A and pharmaceutical applications. Typical applications include phase separations, chromatography, fermentation, CIP, monitoring and ultrafiltration.

The sensor is available in a standard PG13.5 thread size, with 1.5 and 2 inch Tri-Clamp sanitary fittings, or with an NPT fitting, making it suitable for a variety of applications.

The conductivity measuring cell has four platinum electrodes housed in a ceramic sensor element. Similar temperature expansion behaviors of the materials ensure the material bond stays tight even during extreme temperature changes, allowing cleanability and aseptic hygiene.

During operation, an alternating current is applied to the outer electrode pair. At the same time, the voltage applied is measured at the two inner electrodes. The electrolytic conductivity between the electrodes can be reliably established based on the measured voltage and the current flow caused by the liquid's resistance. The advantage of this technology compared to traditional two-electrode sensors is that electrochemical effects at the live electrodes are suppressed by the two additional voltage measuring electrodes.

The sensor connects to an Endress+Hauser Liquiline transmitter that sends conductivity and temperature information to a process control, SCADA or monitoring system via 4-20mA HART, Profibus DP, Modbus RTU or EtherNet/IP. Liquiline transmitters also have a web server that allows the CLS82D’s output, status, diagnostics, logbooks and calibration information to be viewed on a handheld tablet, smartphone or laptop PC via a Wi-Fi or internet connection via any web browser.

The CLS82D is a digital sensor, so it can stores a variety of data in the sensor itself including serial number, data of manufacture, calibration date, number of calibrations, conductivity application range, cell constant, hours of operation at high temperatures, and other data quantifying operating history. These features allow “plug and play” compatibility with the Liquiline transmitter to simplify commissioning, maintenance and replacement—while also improving improves reliability.

For example, an existing sensor can be quickly replaced with a pre-calibrated sensor which automatically connects to the Liquiline transmitter via a non-contact digital connection, eliminating problems with moisture and corrosion. Maintenance intervals can be more efficiently determined based on stored sensor load and calibration data instead of simply on a calendar basis.
