Terion Launches FleetView 3T

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.

Ships Benefit from Intelligent Sensors

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


New Sensor System from KRAL

KRAL OMG 32

KRAL Flow Measurement presents the new sensor system with an expanded temperature range and higher resolution. Starting September 2012, there will be a new sensor for the Volumeter using KRAL Flow Measurement technology. The OMG, OMH and OME series are being optimized. The new sensor system increases the maximum temperature for OMG and OMH from 150 °C to 180 °C and provides better resolution. The innovative sensor is an all-in-one solution which measures flow amount


Macro Sensors Gauge Tank Volume Changes

This diagram shows the LVDT level sensor attached to the side of a tank using a flat-hook assembly. The high-permeability core follows the position of the stainless-steel float. The LVDT electronics sense the core position using magnetic induction. Output is a 4 to 20-mA instrumentation current loop corresponding to the position of the core in the LVDT body.

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
