The new High Viscosity Liquid Level Sensor Model 7014 from Gill Sensors & Controls has proprietary conductive technology specifically designed for monitoring highly viscous (water-based) liquids. The 7014 sensor features an electrically sensitive probe surface and no moving parts or floats. With this design, there is nothing to wear, freeze or clog, allowing for a reliable signal reading while at the same time reducing maintenance costs. The probe also features a wetted area manufactured with

FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) that has non-stick properties. The smooth sensing surface can differentiate between being immersed in thick liquids versus air (the airspace at the top of the tank or container). The variance between these two readings is used to calculate true liquid level. The 7014 sensor can be used for level monitoring in water- based paint solids, lacquers, and pulp products along with other aggressive water-based cleaning chemical combinations commonly used in industrial processing. Even in extremely syrupy and sticky viscous materials, a simple service of wiping the probe clean using alcohol will reset the device for re-use. The 7014’s sensor can be mounted in a “bottoms up” or

inverted orientation with no impact on accuracy. The sensor is available with all of the common electrical outputs including resistive 10-180Ω or 240-33Ω, analogue voltage output with both 0.25-4.75V DC and 0.25-10.0V versions, and current output with 4-20mA. Easy-to-use GUI software includes a programmable switch function (output) that triggers an alarm or warning when the container or tank level has reached the user’s preselected point.

The new MPQ2000 three-phase portable power quality analyser from Megger offers facilities for measuring, analysing and displaying all key power quality parameters on AC and DC systems operating at up to 1,000V. It complies fully with IEC61000-4-30 Class A requirements for all measured parameters, and has a CAT IV 600V safety rating in line with IEC61010. The MPQ2000 can be powered from an internal rechargeable battery pack or from any conveniently available mains supply. It is housed in an IP54 (NEMA4) enclosure. Typical applications of the MPQ2000 include compliance testing to power quality standards, power factor studies, load studies and load balancing, substation monitoring, capacitor bank

sizing, transformer derating and lamp flicker analysis. It also offers facilities for investigations into problems such as breaker tripping, switchgear failures and neutral overheating. The instrument’s integral colour

display operates in oscilloscope and multimeter modes, allowing RMS data, waveforms, demand data, phase angles, harmonics, unbalance, flicker and more to be viewed. Data can also be recorded direct to a standard SD memory card, and either recalled to the display, or transferred to a PC for further analysis and

archiving. As standard SD cards

are used, expanding the memory is as simple as plugging in a new card, which means that the recording capacity is virtually unlimited.


Parker Hannifin is supporting Industry 4.0 initiatives with its new P8S CPS series of ‘smart’ sensors for pneumatic cylinders. The sensors feature intelligent functionality such as the ability to acquire and locally process information, and communicate with upper level controllers and/or local networks. The P8S CPS Continuous Position

Sensor enables quick, precise, high- resolution and contactless sensing of a piston’s position in a cylinder.

Importantly, direct detection of the piston magnet is achieved without the need for separate position encoders or additional mechanics.

Telonic Instruments has announced the UK release of the new Kikusui PWR-01 series of wide-range benchtop programmable DC power supplies. The PWR-01 series is made up of 12 versatile

instruments with models offering 400W, 800W, and 1,200W rated power output and maximum rated voltages up to 650V. The PWR-01 DC power supplies are equipped

with a four-times voltage and current variable ratio. The series provides flexible current and voltage for a variety of applications. A unique feature is variable internal

impedance which allows for various types of simulations suitable for automotive test and other battery-driven applications as well as solar-panel evaluation. The PWR-01 can be used as an alternative

power source to batteries, for agility testing of engine control units, on-board electronic components or for driving power sources for sensors. Using Wavy sequence creation software,

engineers can create simple simulations such as actuator or sensor operations, and rise/fall of power supplies in multiple channels, making the PWR-01 an ideal choice for automotive developers creating advanced driving assistance systems. The PWR-01 is also equipped with a soft-start

function that limits the inrush current, minimising any harmful effects to devices under test (DUTs) such as DC motors. The power supplies are also equipped with ergonomic power setting knobs, allowing the operator to control voltage and current independently, as well as front-facing banana plugs designed for safety and convenience. The PWR-01 programmable internal memory

allows the engineer to save custom sequences on the power supply, eliminating the need to access a PC every time a test is conducted. Synchronised operation allows for more

complex sequences over multiple channels for testing of DC/DC converters and other products.
