Terion launched FleetView 3T -- a product line extension specifically designed for managing tanker trailers. The FleetView 3 technology platform was developed to accommodate all kinds of asset types and to support many different sensors. The product is designed to gather information from cargo sensors, door sensors, Tractor ID devices, tire pressure sensors, and gas pressure sensors. The product communicates real-time trailer location and event status when the trailer is tethered or untethered, and provides an accurate record of loaded or unloaded status by way of a patented Cargo Sensor.

The innovative sensor is an all-in-one solution which measures flow amount
Tank gauging systems specialist PSM’s new iCT level pressure and temperature sensors are suitable for all ship sizes and types. The requirement for increasing amounts of reliable data on board has driven up demand for sensors. One consequence of larger manufacturing volumes has been that sensors have become relatively inexpensive. However, installation costs are another matter, and continue to rise. Today, the cost of installing a level gauging system either as a new build or a
Configured with a float, Macro Sensors HSIR Series LVDT Linear Position Transmitters are serving as level sensors to measure liquid level changes from a few inches to several feet in gauging tank level volumes. In this LVDT level sensor configuration, a stainless-steel float coupled to a nonmagnetic stainless-steel rod is attached to the high-permeability, armature core of the LVDT. The 4 to 20-mA loop-powered LVDT position transmitter senses the position of the core and, therefore
Hi-tech vision sensors to be fitted to Navy unmanned aircraft, distinguish between pirate boats & other vessels Navy unmanned aircraft will be able to distinguish small pirate boats from other vessels when an Office of Naval Research (ONR)-funded sensor starts airborne tests this summer, officials said. Called the Multi-Mode Sensor Seeker (MMSS), the sensor is a mix of high-definition cameras, mid-wave infrared sensors and laser-radar (LADAR) technology
