Drives From Control Techniques Helped Titanic Belfast® Centre Open On Time


itanic Belfast®, the World’s Largest Titanic Visitor Experience, was built to continue the story and legacy of the world’s most famous ship; to celebrate Belfast’s great ship-building feats and commemorate Titanic’s tragic maiden voyage and loss of life. Titanic Belfast is located in the heart of Belfast, Northern Ireland, on the slipways where the Titanic was built. It measures 14,000 m² and accommodates nine galleries of interactive exhibition space, an underwater exploration theatre, recreations of the ship’s decks and cabins, banqueting facilities, Titanic Store and a café and bistro. The unique architectural themes, including the insignia of the White Star Line. The Challenge The Harvey Group, a provider of mechanical and electrical building services in Northern Ireland and the UK, was contracted by Titanic Foundation Ltd, the owners of Titanic Belfast®, to supply and install complete building services. This was a unique challenge due to the highly unusual shape of the building. In February 2012 G. S. Stothers Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, one of Northern Ireland’s leading smoke ventilation specialists, was asked by the Harvey Group to supply a system which could control two twin fansets within the smoke extraction system in the atrium of the Titanic building. Obviously, it was necessary that the control system be 100% reliable. Titanic Belfast® was due to be open before the 100th anniversary of the April 1912 sinking of the Titanic and the opening date was set for March 31, 2012, the 100th anniversary of Titanic leaving the slipway before control system was therefore required before the end of February, giving G. S. Stothers less than one month to complete the job.

The Solution G. S. Stothers chose Commander SK drives from Control Techniques to control the fan-sets. The drives were recommended by Northern Ireland-based drives distributor, Motion Control Systems, because time was critical and Commander SK drives are renowned for the ease with which they can be programmed and interfaced to any external control system. Additionally, SK drives are well known for their extreme reliability. The twin fan-sets were positioned in the 5th and 6th building. They are connected to a Very Early Smoke designed to activate the smoke extraction system once it detects smoke at high level. If smoke is detected, then four variable speed drives ramp up the fan-sets in a delayed sequence, so that one fan does not restrict G. S. Stothers approached Motion Control Systems who recommended using 37 kW Commander SK drives. Motion Control Systems was able to supply the four modules within two days. Willas McAdam, founder of Motion Control Systems, says: “I had no hesitation in recommending that G. S. Stothers use Commander SK drives from Control Techniques for the Titanic Belfast® smoke extraction system because Commander SK is the easiest drive to program and interface to any external control system, especially in such a time constrained environment.” Sam Stothers, Proprietor of G. S. Stothers, adds: “As promised by Motion Control Systems, the Commander SK drive was extremely easy to program and interface, and really helped us to get the job done on time. In fact, we were so impressed that we have now approved Control Techniques as a preferred supplier for all our future building management, car park ventilation and carbon monoxide/smoke detection control systems. This includes a current building management system/ car park ventilation project being carried out in Glasgow, Scotland with an estimated value of close to £1,000,000.”

The most accurate source of Ozone calibration gas on the market

calibration gas system

Ozone Calibration Gas Generator

(&/JF0GPS$BMJCSBUJPOPG0[POF%FUFDUPST Advanced Calibration Designs, Inc. (ACD) of Tucson, AZ (USA) are the innovators of the hand-held gas generators of calibration and bump gas standards for reactive gases such as Chlorine, Chlorine Dioxide, Hydrogen Sulphide , Hydrogen Cyanide. Now, ACD have added Ozone to this list with the introduction of the GENie range. Small, lightweight and operating on four AA batteries, the GENie O3 allows a service engineer to carry out on-site calibration of Ozone sensors in difficult to reach locations. Alternatively, the generator can be plugged in to mains power supply to enable the service engineer to calibrate hand held detectors in a safe area. The user adjustable concentration setting lies between 0.2 and 1.0 parts per million which means the GENie O3 will calibrate any Ozone gas sensor or detection system from different instrument manufacturers. The GENie O3 utilizes an internal mass flow sensor and ultraviolet light source to provide accurate levels of Ozone gas to the end user. Ozone gas is not stable as a gas, so cannot be stored in cylinders, therefore there are no calibration gas cylinders of Ozone available from Special Gases suppliers.

Selectable concentrations . Integrated microprocessor controlled feedback hand-held . exceptional Simpleaccuracy to use, long life The GENie Compact, O3 is sold with anportable NIST certificate of calibration to +/- design 10%, providing as well as high precision. The unparalleled long life source in the calibrator has an expected life of five hundred hours of use, allowing for extremely low cost calibrations over the life of the source. With the user interface available in French, Spanish and German, as well as English, the GENie O3 calibrator can be used by a large range of end users in virtually any Ozone calibration application.

Service Robotics: A Vision becomes Reality As a global authority on service robotics, Schunk has once again hosted its Schunk Expert Days in Lauffen, Germany. With service robotics becoming more prominent throughout industry, Dr. Roko Tschakarow, Business Director Mobile Gripping Systems at SCHUNK, speaks about the future and the challenges of service ro-botics. The focus point of the 2013 event was ‘Vision Becomes Reality’, discussing how far service robotics has evolved in recent years and the challenges it faces moving forward. Almost all the large industrial sectors have service robotics on their agenda and interest from associated companies considering service robotics has

force of service robots according to the situation in real time. A second important issue is the usability. The operation of service robots has to become easier and more intuitive than has been the case to date. Concerning the legal frameworks, Dr Tschakarow says: “There is the question of liability in case of applications with unmanned systems for example. Data protection also plays an important role. Additionally, service robots have to record, process and store a wide range of data in order to navigate safely.” The system manufacturers and integrators will be the primary drivers of this technology and Dr Tschakarow believes that similar to the conventional industrial robotics, someone has to combine modules and solutions, but also software and periphery with each other to ensure user requirements are optimally met. System manufacturers and integrators may also take over these interface functions into service robotics. There may be established providers or new companies that have expertise in applications of service robotics.

Roko Tschakarow Highlighting the issues facing the service robotics arena, Dr Tschakarow believes there are three central issues that will determine the evolution over coming years. Firstly, the safety aspect for humans and material, secondly, the legal framework and thirdly, and integrators for service robotics solutions as an interface between manufacturer and user. With regard to the progression of technology, the use possible in the future to control the performance and

Systems, Schunk will consistently expand and further develop its module program for mobile gripping systems. The most recent example for this is the successfully integrated the electronics in the wrist. In future, tactile sensors will also give the necessary sensitivity. This fact is important, if gripping and handling tasks have to be carried out in unstructured and unpredictable environments. to simplify operation and control in future. It is the company’s long-term goal that users in private and business environments will be able to easily use the modules and assembly groups, even if they don’t have experience in programming mechatronic systems. Additionally, the mechatronic gripping modules and lightweight arms will push the development of highly integrated drive assemblies for mobile platforms forward in the forthcoming years.
