Ready for Wireless Automation

Ready for Wireless Automation ControlGlobal magazine recently surveyed companies about their readiness to deploy wireless sensor networks (WSN). Results indicate far more readiness to entertain the idea compared to a survey taken three years ago. Two-thirds of ISA SP100 Wireless users responding said they were ready to convince management of the return on investment (ROI) for a WSN. How would WSNs be used? The editors note that the lowest-hanging-fruit applications will most likely be the first to migrate from wired to wireless platforms. Temperature monitoring was cited by most (at 78%), closely followed by pressure monitoring (72%).

Stopping Leaks Simplified

Stopping Leaks Simplified One vendor updated its ANSI C software development environment for building test and measurement applications. Along with an improved compiler and debugger, the latest release includes a built-in Resource Tracking Window that simplifies tracking usage of memory, and can identify memory leaks in application code.

How Loud is Loud?

How Loud is Loud?

Noise in TV broadcast and video production facilities makes it difficult to monitor audio quality. Neural Audio Analytics software gives operators a visual measurement for perceived audio loudness — and simplifies sound level consistency. It uses the ITU BS.1770 loudness standard and a proprietary loudness measure.

A Look at Delta-Sigma Converters

A Look at Delta-Sigma Converters If you're new to ADC theory, or just looking to brush up on it, here's an archived tutorial that takes a look at the delta-sigma converter and its operation. This converter type is based around a one-bit ADC operating at a very high sampling rate. It's distinguished from most other common ADC types by its closed-loop operation.

Two ADCs in One

Two ADCs in One This dual-ADC device targets motor-control, rotary-resolver, and I/Q sampling applications. The chip incorporates two 12-bit, 1.25 Msps converters — each with an independent serial peripheral interface (SPI) for host communication. The device operates across the full automotive temperature range of -40° C to +125° C.

Keep Parameters in the Loop

Keep Parameters in the Loop This compact loop-powered signal conditioner can measure, filter, and isolate different input parameters, and convert them to industry standard 4-20 mA current-loop outputs. It can be programmed for analog signals and sensor types including PT100, thermocouple, mV, mA, voltage, resistance, and potentiometer inputs.

Signal Conditioning on Board

Signal Conditioning on Board Do you handle motion control applications involving quadrature encoders? This PC/104-format digital quadrature input board is available in four-, six-, or eight-channel versions. It counts outputs from up to eight quadrature encoders, and features three conditioned differential inputs (including indexing) per channel.
