Process Sensors With Bluetooth Communication


ArcAir – a new communication package for the Arc family of intelligent process sensors enables reliable, economical Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity in all environments. The new Blue- tooth capability allows users to view or control Arc sensors from a wide range of devices, in- cluding smart phones and tablets. ArcAir apps are available online for both Android and iOS platforms in three versions: ArcAir Lite (free), ArcAir Basic and ArcAir Advanced. Arc sensor technology features a built-in microprocessor that provides direct digital and analog commu- nication and eliminates the need for separate transmitters. Arc sensors have improved pro- cess measurement accuracy and speed while reducing installation and maintenance costs. The ArcAir mobile application for Arc pH, dis- solved oxygen and conductivity measurement can communicate wirelessly with up to 30 indi- vidual sensors at the same time.

The Matrikon OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) Software Development Kit (SDK), is a single fully scalable toolkit to allow users to quickly and easily interconnect industrial software systems, regardless of the platform, operat- ing system or size. The Matrikon OPC UA SDK is able to work equally well in small embedded environments as well as in large PC-based ap- plications. This scalability makes it a one-stop- shop solution for companies that want to OPC UA enable multiple product lines ranging from networked discrete sensors and actuators to programmable controllers and beyond. With its “server-in-a-box” design, the Matrikon OPC UA SDK provides vendors with a fast, easy method of implementing optimized, highly reliable OPC UA products without requiring their devel- opers to be OPC UA experts – allowing vendors to confidently take their OPC UA enabled prod- ucts to market faster.

MasterControl v11.5 is the first major release to focus entirely on the user experience (UX). MasterControl call the UX its ‘Beautiful User Experience’ initiative. This approach to deliv- ering exceptional experiences aligns Master- Control’s powerful product functionality with its user interface (UI). MasterControl’s new UI greatly increases a user’s ability to perform job tasks, access data, make critical decisions, and connect workflows—which have been com- mon challenges for users across all competi- tive solutions in the EQMS market. This new intuitive UI increases the ease of use in core modules like audit, corrective and preventive action (CAPA), document control, and training.

PharmaSuite 8.0 offers new capabilities in- cluding a new archiving capability that lets manufacturers store production records in FDA-compliant pdf/a format, change control for effective equipment management and layered dispense. Life sciences companies are required by law to retain each individual batch record up to 30 years. This new archiving ca- pability allows manufacturers to store produc- tion batch records in an FDA-compliant pdf/a format, including all GMP relevant artifacts. Additionally, they can store batch records in a standard B2MML format so they can re- trieve the data for analytical purposes once archived. In this way, productivity is improved as batch records that have been exported for archival can be purged from the production environment. All pharmaceutical production equipment, e.g., containers, bins, vessels, hoses, etc. are required to be documented in production records. PharmaSuite 8.0 also provides a sophisticated equipment manage- ment tool that, during execution, checks that each piece of equipment meets its required fit for purpose specifications, e.g., cleaning. In addition, a new change control capability of equipment-related master data tracks and subjects to review and approval all changes of equipment configuration.
