RA) for the supply of Multi Product Calibrators (MPC) to the United States Army. Multi Product Calibrators are used to


calibrate a wide variety of handheld and bench mount digital multimeters and electronic test tools. A customised version of Transmille’s 4000 series will be used by Army CALSETS group in their mission to develop and deliver calibration measurement accuracy to the Army. Michael Bailey, director of Transmille, sees

the contract as a major milestone in Transmille’s growth as a global power in electrical metrology. “The innovations and flexibility of a smaller company have outperformed other suppliers” says Bailey. “We are immensely proud of our achievements and Transmille’s constant improvement and innovation ensures we are well positioned for further growth.” Bailey explains that the Transmille calibrator was selected after a rigorous competitive technical evaluation by the Army CALSETS group. Transmille supply calibration laboratories,

manufacturers and R&D facilities across the globe, with innovative solutions and products for a wide range of requirements. With products such as the Ultra Portable 1000 Series Multiproduct calibrator, through to the 4010 Advanced Multiproduct calibrator, Transmille can meet customers requirements with a cost effective solution.

In addition to Transmille’s hardware

solutions, the ProCal Calibration Software suite offers laboratories a powerful solution for digitising their calibration workflow. Calibration laboratories across the world have been using ProCal for over 20 years to automate measurements and reporting. Throughout 2020 and in 2021, companies using ProCal have been able to continue business as normal as all data is stored digitally and accessible at any time rather than legacy paper systems.

INDustry 4.0 sENsor INstrumENtAtIoN B

urster’s new generation 9251 series fieldbus controller, available in the UK from Ixthus

Instrumentation, supports PROFINET, EtherCAT and ETherNet/IP - and in combination with the well proven 9250 series universal instrumentation amplifiers make light work of sensor data acquisition for the Industry 4.0 age. Featuring automatic channel detection/addressing for up to eight 9250 instrumentation amplifiers and with flexible configuration using Burster’s DigiVision PC software via an integral USB interface, the 9251 has ample ability to simultaneously acquire and transfer large amounts of disparate sensor measurement data through the Ethernet fieldbus to PLCs, DAQ systems and other control systems. Burster’s 9251 Ethernet fieldbus controller and 9250 instrumentation

amplifier systems enable the flexibility to mix the customer’s preferred strain gauge, potentiometer, voltage or TTL sensor technologies. With rapid sensor set-up using Burster’s TEDS push-button auto-sensing facility, this extends to a manufacturer-independent choice that allows the integration of sensor data for complete machines and systems where high precision and real-time measurement of torque, force, vibration, pressure, etc., is required for extensive condition monitoring and preventative maintenance purposes – a pre-requisite of Industry 4.0. The 9251 Ethernet controller also offers an optional analogue input with

a ±10 V range that may be used as an additional measurement channel - allowing up to nine sensors per Ethernet fieldbus interface. This same option includes a PLC I/O channel (DIN61131) that may be used for tare,

tare reset, or limit reset.

Transmille EthErCAt CAN FD INtErFACE

CAN FD interface device and CAN FD analyser. It has a single CAN FD port and uses EtherCAT as a data interface. Several devices can be daisy-chained together with a single EtherCAT cable for power, data, and synchronisation. The bandwidth requirement of new automotive


applications is rapidly increasing. Automotive OEMs are introducing CAN FD bus in an increased number of sensors inside new vehicles. It is much faster than the normal CAN 2.0 which is limited to 1Mbps. The CAN FD supports high- speed CAN interface with data rates up to 8 Mbps. CAN FD is also back-compatible and supports the CAN 2.0 communication protocol as well as special protocols such SAE J1939, where CAN out is used as read-only. The KRYPTONi-1xCAN-FD device has galvanically isolated

communication lines and an isolated sensor supply of +5 V and +12 V. Power limit for the sensor supply is 1.4 W. This product is the latest member of the award-winning

KRYPTON ONE product line. A line designed for extreme conditions with an operating temperature range between

-40°C and +85 °C and IP67 rating.
