Tring, UK & Specialised Imaging Ltd. (Tring, UK) has been assigned the worldwide rights by SFW (El Cajon, CA, USA) to manufacture and market its new range of Optical Triggers. The highly reliable OT-series trigger has been re-engineered by Specialised Imaging to reduce its size and improve robustness.
The new OT3 optical trigger is battery driven to make the system portable and isolate its operation from interference from ground loops, noise spiking or brownout. The sensor is a blue enhanced array of twelve diodes that has a spectral response from 300-1300 nm.
A 700 nm cut-off filter has been incorporated to reduce the range from 300-700 nm so that it is much less likely to saturate from high IR sources, such as clouds.
A further benefit of the OT3 is that it can be used as an IR muzzle flash detector as well as a sky-screen detector. Due to the unique design of the OT3, the sky screen reference can be artificial (e.g. white board or a LED light array) thus removing any operational dependence on good weather.

In all applications ammonia slip can occur, which either needs monitoring during operation or for system design and testing.
The Axetris laser gas analyzer is a perfect tool for OEM integrators because it offers a contact-less low ppm-level measurement of NH3 in a heated sample gas cell (190 °C) and its extractive set-up allows for simple 0- and span-gas measurements.

Quebec City, CANADA - Gentec Electro-Optics, Inc., is proud to launch the Beamage-M2, its new Real-Time M2 measurement module for the Beamage-3.0.
The Beamage-M2 module is unlike any other M2 device on the market, with its compact assembly that contains no moving parts, allowing for a fast and easy setup.
The Fabry-Perot Interferometer – M2 Measurements with no moving parts
To achieve M2 measurements, the system uses a completely passive optical approach. Inside the device, a Fabry-Perot interferometer made with a pair of partially reflective glasses is positioned in front of the sensor of the Beamage-3.0 camera with a convenient angle for the light to oscillate, thus creating time delayed slices.

Now available for download at the Moore Industries website, the case study shows how the use of the TG200s helped Ashland Inc. simplify the upgrade process and take full advantage of the benefits offered by FOUNDATION™ fieldbus.
In October 2012, Ashland embarked on an upgrade of the FOUNDATION fieldbus system at their world-class 1,4-butanediol (BDO) plant, which produces an intermediate ingredient in common industrial and commercial products. The upgrade replaced a system of quick-disconnect connectors and disconnect switches that were inefficient and had become corroded over time.
Selecting TG200s had several benefits for Ashland. The fourth-generation device couplers have unique capabilities to solve the most common issues of segment termination and short circuit protection.

Each experiment can be run under different conditions and utilise a different set of reagents or monomers.
Incorporating a separate liquid handler and fraction collector, FlowSyn Auto-LF enables sample loop filling in preparation for the next experiment to take place before the current experiment has finished, thereby reducing overall reaction run times.
Additionally, the module has no injection ports to leak or block, and the fully integrated robust wash protocols minimise the risk of cross-contamination.
