In industrial process measurement and automation, demand is steadily rising for simple, reliable and maintenance-free measuring instruments in a pocket-sized format. The new Picomag from Endress+Hauser fulfills such requirements, making no compromises. Not only does it measure the flow of electrically conductive fluids, but also their process temperature and conductivity. In addition, Picomag offers customers … Continue reading Pocket-sized flow measuring technology
Vega has been a leader in radar level transmitters for over 20 years, continuing to offer improvements to the process control sector. PACE explains how the transmitters have changed over the years. The use of the radar level transmitter for the process industry started back in 1991. These were extremely large units and operated with … Continue reading How Vega has led the way in radar level transmitters
World Metrology Day has been marked by the start of the redefined International System of Measurement (SI) Units. Last November, measurement scientists from around the world voted in favour of redefining the SI units. The four base SI units whose redefinition comes into effect today are the: kilogram (measurement of mass) ampere (measurement of electric … Continue reading Redefined International System of Measurement comes into effect
New research findings show how engineering firms can make major gains in productivity and efficiency by reducing the often-considerable time-lag between the manufacture of components and checking their precision on a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). To ensure complete accuracy, CMMs are housed in a strictly temperature-controlled environment. But manufacturing processes often lead to big increases … Continue reading New temperature measurement technique boosts efficiency of component manufacture
The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and the National Measurement Institute (NMI), which share areas of common interest in both measurement and research, have signed a MOU formalising collaboration. Together the two organisations are primary custodians of national infrastructure and facilities underpinning both Australia’s research in nuclear science and technology and metrology. ANSTO … Continue reading ANSTO and NMI sign collaborative MOU

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at such a rapid rate, leading researchers are predicting a future dominated by autonomous production and logistics – and much sooner than many may expect.
Australian company Infratech Industries, in collaboration with the University of Newcastle has launched a world-first ‘Energy-on-Demand’ system that overcomes the predictability and environmental issues that currently plague existing renewable energy and storage solutions.
Manufacturing systems and processes are becoming increasingly complex, making more rational decision-making in process control a necessity. Therefore, better information gathering and analysis techniques are needed for effective condition-based monitoring.
Pumped hydro storage can be used to help build a secure and cheap Australian electricity grid with 100 per cent renewable energy, according to a new study from The Australian National University (ANU). Lead researcher Professor Andrew Blakers from ANU said the zero-emissions grid would mainly rely on wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) technology, with … Continue reading Hydro storage tops Australia’s renewable options
