Partnership supporting Industrie 4.0. - Aegis Software has announced their partnership with SEICA Italy, a global supplier of intelligent automatic test equipment and selective soldering systems, consolidating Aegis’ and Seica’s mutual vision to support Italian and EU government-driven environment sustainability and Industry 4.0 digitalization initiatives.
Reducing electric vehicle test development times. - Major automotive manufacturers like Subaru are using National Instruments (NI) hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) technology to simulate actual road conditions for electric vehicle testing, eliminating environmental factors to reduce test time and costs.
Helping ensure hazardous waste is safe. - Tabib Toxic Waste Services Ltd has purchased a second Tiger handheld photoionisation detector (PID) from Ion Science – leading specialist in gas detection instrumentation for global occupational health and environmental monitoring applications – to ensure the safe export of hazardous waste from a new hazardous waste transfer station in Israel.
Methane detection in mines. - The most common source of mining accidents, particularly in coals mines, is an explosion of methane gas. Methane is a colourless, odourless gas which is trapped in mines as part of the coal formation process. As coal is formed from compressed plant matter methane is produced as a by-product then, when rocks are excavated, methane is released into the local atmosphere with potential deadly consequences.
One sensor range that is suited to the critical safety issue of detecting methane outgassed from mines is the Guardian NG series from Edinburgh Sensors.
Are process control & automation systems secure? - The growing threat from Cyberattacks on the control systems running manufacturing plants and critical infrastructure is not going away. ISA Ireland - Conference on Cybersecurity for Process Control and Automation Systems, Cork, Ireland. 13th April 2018.
