Machines Reporting Their Health

Machines Reporting Their Health America's health care system isn't the only thing getting re-engineered. According to a ControlGlobal article, machines are getting better at telling us how they're feeling, and if necessary, what's wrong with them. Whether you call it condition-based monitoring or reliability-centered maintenance, it all has the goal of preempting downtime and cutting maintenance costs. And according to once source quoted in the article, the cost of downtime is 10x that of maintenance costs. The author says the power industry is driving this trend, and tells how one electric utility is applying technology. This video suggests listening to your machines, it's important.

Centralized Data Store for SCADA

Centralized Data Store for SCADA This supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software targets oil and gas, and water/wastewater operations. It stores program components in a central repository easing remote deployment of Windows-based network devices. Engineers use the repository to build future applications, enforce standards, preserve applications knowledge, and reduce overall engineering effort.

Make Your Mark

Make Your Mark A 'mark' function lets a user attach a label during a measurement using this high-speed data-acquisition system. Features for electro-mechanical and power measurement applications include a real-time X-Y display and waveform accumulation mode. It also has a 'snapshot' function for comparing a reference signal with a new measurement.

Send Me a Text Message
 

Send Me a Text Message A USB interface lets this DAQ device support a range of host hardware, but its software interface goes one step further. The acquisition module's operating system-independent protocol lets acquisition devices be programmed with simple text-based messages. The small form-factor, 20-bit, thermocouple DAQ brings temperature measurement to a variety of platforms.

Ethernet for Sound and Vibration Measurement

Ethernet for Sound and Vibration Measurement Ethernet offers high-bandwidth between acquisition systems and host computers, and allows the acquisition module to be located remotely. This data acquisition system for sound and vibration measurement leverages the advantages of LXI-based instruments. It has four individually-isolated 24 bit inputs for integrated electronics piezoelectric (IEPE) sensors, and samples at up to 52.7 kSPS per channel.

Acquisition Goes On-chip

Acquisition Goes On-chip In GPS, portable communications, and medical applications low power consumption and compactness are key. This 100-kSPS analog-to-digital converter integrates an 8-input multiplexer and programmable-gain amplifier (PGA) — resulting in a complete analog signal chain on a single chip. It offers a 75% power savings compared to discrete implementations.

Signal Conditioning's Changes

Signal Conditioning's Changes You might not see dramatic change in signal conditioning products. But this Control Design article says cumulative change has been significant. Evolutionary trends range from size-reduction, to accuracy gains, to increased processing power. Change also yielded 'universal conditioning' — where a single product adapts to a range of measurement needs.

Universal, Programmable Isolator-converter

Universal, Programmable Isolator-converter This universal analog isolator-converter adapts to more than 130 input/output signal combinations, using DIP-switch configuration. The DIN-rail mount device provides 3,000 V isolation, offers zero-point and span adjustment, and has an auxiliary supply for sensors that need loop power. Modules include RTD, thermocouple, frequency alarm, and more.

Women in Engineering: Videos

Women in Engineering: Videos Why do so few women pursue engineering careers? A Web site — Engineer Your Life — offers insights into why many decide that engineering's not for them. It serves as a guide to high school girls and also provides tips on what would make engineering a more compelling career choice for women. This site offers a number of videos that show what inspired different women to become an engineer.

Shown (and Flown) at CES

Shown (and Flown) at CES Wowing the gamers at this year's Consumer Electronics Show was a miniature iPhone-controlled drone called the AR.Drone quadricopter. Unlike conventional helicopters — which take great skill to fly — the AR.Drone is much easier to master. Its secret is an automated stabilization system that uses a downward-looking camera, gyroscopes, and other sensors for inputs. This video shows it in action.
