HAMPTON, Va., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS), an expert in sensor design and manufacturing, now offers the LL-01 Sentio Series of miniature ultrasonic liquid level switches that combines ultrasonic technology with reliable analog circuitry to precisely measure aerated liquids. The rugged, 316L stainless steel sensors are not affected by the dielectric or optical properties of liquids.

The series reliably detects liquid levels in space-constrained applications, such as fluid storage tanks, compressors, boiler tanks, hydraulic reservoirs and chillers. Many OEM markets including medical and histology, HVAC, industrial automation, chemical delivery and waste management benefit from the sensors' advanced properties.
The compact, cost-effective design, including the integral analog circuitry, allows easy integration into a wide variety of industrial equipment. The fluid level detectors come with either 1/4" NPT or 1/2" NPT threaded fitting, and use no moving parts for exceptionally long-term operation.
The new switches handle pressures up to 250 psig (1,724 Kpa) as standard with higher pressures up to 500 psig (3,447 Kpa) available. Input power is 5 VDC to 30 VDC and standard relay output is 0.5 A SPST in a normally opened configuration, with a normally closed relay option for high level fail-safe operations.
A 4-20 mA power loop output can also be incorporated into the new sensors to ensure that signal accuracy remains unaffected by voltage drop or to supply operating power to the device.
Each unit offers transient and reverse polarity protection against surge damage. Operating temperature is -20 degrees F to +176 degrees F (-29 degrees C to +80 degrees C). Repeatability is 2 mm or better and leak current is less than 50 microamps.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
