Every industrial process delivers benefits for people around the world and nearly all of them involve a pumping operation at some point and keeping these essential assets operational is an important task.
A fiber-optic sensor that combines low-cost LEDs and dyes has been created by Cornell researchers, which results in a stretchable “skin” that detects deformations such as pressure, bending and strain.
Albert Kao, CEO and co-founder of the company, offered some background about his company, i-5O, and their work with digital twins powered by computer vision systems.
Building a more robust and flexible solution for pump systems that can validate real-world anomalies and adapt to changing IT policies requires an end-to-end approach that combines technology knowhow, equipment expertise, and operating experience.
Researchers are studying how plant-based inks can be used to print low-cost, biodegradable and recyclable sensors.
Adding multi-turn measurement capabilities to hollow-shaft encoders used to be challenging, but adding a Wiegand wire system makes it easier and expands usable applications, including robotics.
Applying vibration and temperature sensors with wireless transmitters, paired to local or cloud diagnostics, can help keep pumps running safely and reliably.
Emerson is using its technology to monitor the health of essential workers and keep them healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A Velcro-like food sensor made from an array of silk microneedles has been developed that is designed to pierce through plastic packaging to sample food for signs of spoilage and bacterial contamination.
A prototype of a rapid COVID-19 molecular test has been developed and it provides a portable instrument for reading the results with a smartphone in 30 minutes, which could bypass sending samples to a lab.
