To solve the problem of replacing batteries in ever-increasing wireless sensing applications in the Internet of Things (IoT), PsiKick has developed proprietary sensors called Smart Sense Nodes (or S2Ns) that employ ultra-low-power digital and RF circuit technologies. The S2Ns are powered by energy harvested from heat or indoor lighting that eliminates the need for a […]
SignalFire has introduced the Hatch Watchdog, a wireless thief hatch sensor that monitors the status of tank hatches to mitigate environmental and safety risks associated with accidental emissions. When tank hatches—known as thief hatches—remain ajar, they can release vapors into the atmosphere. Stringent regulations in controlling emissions can result in fines due to leaking tank […]
The confocalDT 2471 HS high-speed controller offers improved measurement characteristics, enhanced optical components and an integrated light source. Providing a measuring rate of 70kHz, it is currently the worldwide fastest confocal chromatic controller without external light source. The confocalDT measurement systems offer highest precision along with maximum speed. The confocalDT 2471 HS is compatible with […]
The automation company Pilz is expanding its portfolio to include the diagnostic solution “Safety Device Diagnostics”, which comprises a fieldbus module, junction and safe sensor technology PSEN. The new diagnostic solution enables a wide range of sensor data to be called up simply, including over distance. Service operations can be considerably reduced as a result, […]

RFID designed for consumer and commercial applications may not be the right choice for a production environment to convey sensor and other data. To help users avoid the pitfalls, Balluff RFID experts have written a white paper that discusses the three fundamental qualities to determine if RFID systems will perform reliably in a demanding production […]
With Lantronix Inc.’s xSenso unit, users can readily send real-time data to any node on the network or over the Internet. The DIN-rail or wall mount analog device server (ADS) remotely monitors and logs data from a variety of sensors including temperature, humidity, pressure, level, flow, weight, and gas/air quality transmitters. The XSenso server also […]
