MTL – Why Choose Intrinsic Safety?

1.1 Introduction Intrinsic safety (IS) is a low-energy signaling technique that prevents explosions from occurring by ensuring that the energy transferred to a hazardous area is well below the energy required to initiate an explosion. The energy levels made available for signaling are small but useable and more than adequate for the majority of instrumentation systems. The two mechanisms being

Recurring Gauges Failure can be Expensive and Risky

Author: Instrument Guru Posted: WIKA Blog Dec 19,2013 There are plenty of articles and sites about automobiles and their woes. In an era of sophisticated cars packed with a myriad of electronic gizmos and digital instrumentation, quality gauges are essential to an automobile’s longevity—and its owner’s long-term happiness. The same principle holds true in a processing operation: just like the

How Variable Reluctance Speed Sensors Work

How AKA Passive Speed Sensors Work: Variable Reluctance (Passive Speed Sensor) Magnetic resistance is known as reluctance (variable reluctance = VR). Each tooth positioned in front of the pole decreases reluctance and increases magnetic field density around the coil Each valley increases reluctance and causes the magnetic field to collapse around the coil thereby generating a voltage. Repeating combination of

Hall Effect Zero Speed and Active Sensors

Hall effect speed sensors are also called Zero Speed Sensors and Active Speed Sensors   Hall Effect Sensors: Is an active, powered device that produces an output signal regardless of target speed from zero 15kHz+ It includes a silicon chip that has high level of circuit integration leading to high reliability Typical output from a Hall Effect Sensors is Digital,

Mechanical Pressure Gauges Installation and Operating Instructions

Author: WIKA From: WIKA Learning Center Pressure Range Selection To insure proper operation and long service life, the proper pressure range should be selected. For applications with constant, steady pressure, the measured pressure should be no more than 75% of the full scale range of the gauge. For applications with fluctuating pressure, the measured pressure should be no more than

Analog Output Calibration for TACHTROL30 & TACHPAK30

TACHPAK Analog output for TACHPAK30 and TACHROL30 can be calibrated through TACHLINK software. Instruments come calibrated from the factory, however, the customer has the option to re-calibrate to determine the system is operating correctly or to ensure maximum accuracy at the ends of thecompliance range. Calibration, when started, must be completed. When AO calibration is initiated the first thing that

How To Identify Fitting Threads

We are frequently asked to explain the differences in various types of threads, as piping specifications and (or) equipment are designed with the following threaded connections: NPT BSPT BSPP Screw Thread S.A.E. Straight Thread Metric Thread   NPT Thread   NPT, National Pipe Thread or pipe taper is the most commonly used pipe thread in the United States and Canada.

How to Select a Pressure Gauge

There are five primary items needed to properly select a pressure gauge: Pressure Range – What pressure scale needs to be measured? Dial Size – How large of a dial diameter is needed? Connection Type – What size and orientation of connection is required? Material – Should the wetted parts be brass or stainless steel? Accuracy – What accuracy of
