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.

Wesmar, a U.S. manufacturer of sonar equipment, has introduced its new line of trawl sonar catch sensors. ‘They are the fastest and most powerful on the market,” said Dennis Soderberg, WESMAR’s Vice President of the Electronics Division.   The Model CS20 WESMAR catch sensors work with the highly popular WESMAR TCS780 and TCS380 trawl sonar systems. Up to six catch sensors can be used on the cod end of a WESMAR system


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

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


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
