Human-robot collaboration (HRC) is becoming more common, but humans still need to be aware of their machine counterparts. Companies have developed techniques to make it easier for humans and robots to safely interact and improve plant floor productivity.
The 2017 award recipients represent the best in innovation
The relationship between steam pressure and temperature makes temperature measurement extremely helpful in understanding many different operating conditions of steam components in the steam and condensate system.
Smart actuators provide the capability for variable maintenance functions. Smart actuators and other electrical devices lower maintenance and manufacturing costs.
The OPTIMASS 2000 S400 16-inch Coriolis mass flowmeter is ideal for bulk measurement of petroleum and oil, as well as syrup, molasses, and raw chemicals.
IHS Markit reported that sales for the gas, steam and hydro turbine industries are projected to struggle through 2020 due to a lack of market opportunities for suppliers and high price erosion.
The DD60 capacitors are designed to block harmonics and prevent resonance in high ambient temperature and high-harmonic current real-world applications
The Graphite platform has upgraded communication capabilities with the addition of DNP3 network support.
Low power is not only inefficient, but can also be expensive over the life of an electrical system. Improved power factor will increase the distribution system’s efficiency and reduce energy costs associated with low power factor penalties.
