80 GHZ RADAR NOW GETS BLUETOOTH WITH EX APPROVAL

V

EGA Bluetooth communications have been a standard option across the whole range of plics® transmitters since March this year and it is also backward compatible to all sensors supplied since 2002. It features secure 64 bit encryption and pairing using Apps or PC USB dongle via PACTware. Up until now, it has only been available for safe area devices. Adding yet another new option for the new 80 GHz radar level sensors VEGAPULS 64 (liquids) and 69 (bulk solids), they have added ATEX / IECEx: Ex ia, Ex ia/t (Dust) FM: OL, XP, DIP approvals. This enables the easy set up and sensor management using EX capable tablets and smartphones, run by Android, with Bluetooth 4.0 via the VEGA TOOLS App. They can also be operated via a magnetic pen through a window. This range of product compatibility and dual capability is yet another world first from VEGA. This option means ‘hot work’ permits may not be needed, as no covers are removed or wires connected to sensors or signal cables. Engineers can work from safer locations, possibly even outside clean rooms in electronics, pharma and food industries, saving time and increasing safety.

Other Valves Fight Friction, We Designed it Out Unlike other valves that seal with friction, Posi-flate’s unique butterfly valve uses an inflatable seat to seal with air pressure. Thus it requires less torque and a smaller actuator, resulting in lower cost. Plus, the seat automatically compensates for wear, providing longer life. Some users have reported over six million cycles and the valves are still going strong. s s s s s s
