Measurement & Monitoring Acsoft establishes Acoustic Calibration Laboratory Reinforcing its position at the forefront of sound and vibration instrumentation and sensors for aerospace, defence, automotive and telecommunications, AcSoft 01 3 639550; has established an Acoustic Calibration Laboratory at its new stateof-the-art office in Bedford. Cirrus Research launch new App for doseBadge5 Noise monitoring specialists Cirrus Research has launched a new wireless App to enhance the features of its latest personal dosimeter, the doseBadge5. Already boasting a host of new advances, the doseBadge5 has now enhanced wireless technology to allow the instrument to communicate remotely with the doseBadge5 Wand and the dBLink App. With the first phase of the facility fully operational, the company is now able to offer on-site calibration of its G.R.A.S measurement microphones and pre-amplifiers, as well as perform diagnostics and repairs. The doseBadge5 Wand allows instruments to be started and stopped without disturbing the wearer and view measurement information via a mobile phone or IOS or Android controlled device. AcSoft has appointed acoustics specialist Alejandro Alex Santana to head up the new calibration laboratory. If the doseBadge5 is running, the current measurement information can be display, allowing mid-shift readings to be obtained. If stopped, the doseBadge5, any stored measurements can still be reviewed. Paul Rubens, General Manager at AcSoft comments “Calibrating microphones at regular intervals is a way to safeguard the quality of measurements and eliminate the costs caused by unreliable equipment. The dBLink App for Android allows the doseBadge5 units to be configured, measurement information viewed and measurements started and stopped.

The device, which already meets the relevant requirements for Europe and North America ATE , IECEx, FM , may now be employed in Japan as well. TIIS-certified EE300Ex devices can be obtained from the Japanese E E sales partner TEKHNE Trading Co., Ltd. EE300Ex is dedicated for use in potentially explosive environments and can be installed directly in both gas and dust hazardous areas of zone 0 / 20. The device accurately measures relative humidity and temperature in the range from 0 to 100% RH and - 0 to 1 0 C - 0...356 F with pressure rating up to 300 bar (4351 psi). The EE300Ex is also available for moisture measurement in oil as well as for temperature measurement only. ProLine P50000 from Knick: Innovative High-Voltage Transducers for Railway Applications Transducers of the new ProLine P50000 series from Knick Elektronische Messger te were specially developed for voltage and current measurement in main and auxiliary power circuits of locomotives and multiple units. They are used, for example, for short circuit detection as well as for monitoring of traction motors and inverters, auxiliary inverters and accumulator batteries. The devices comply with all applicable railway standards and thus meet the high demands of fire protection HL3 according to EN 55 5016 , electrical safety, mechanical robustness as well as insensitivity to extreme environmental conditions and electromagnetic interferences. Compared to conventional sensors used in railway vehicles, ProLine P50000 transducers stand out due to their calibrated range selection feature and integrated universal power supply unit. Calibrated range selection allows different input ranges up to 00 to be selected quickly and flexibly. Tel: 9 30 80 191-0 Nadcap and CQI-9-compliant process validation Fluke Process Instruments will be at the Advanced Engineering exhibition in Birmingham at booth K11, showcasing temperature measurement and validation systems such as the new Datapaq TP3 data logger. This 0-channel logger performs temperature uniformity surveys TUS and system accuracy tests SAT compliant with C I-9 and Nadcap AMS 2750E. Featuring a large memory for 3.6 million data points, it records detailed temperature profiles with an accuracy of 0.3 C. The channels can be flexibly specified for different thermocouple types and for up to four analog sensors. The Datapaq TP3 provides full connectivity options, including Bluetooth and USB download as well as real-time data transfer via radio. Users can perform ten consecutive profiling runs before downloading to a computer via USB or Bluetooth. The manufacturer also offers an unparalleled range of industry-specific pyrometers, infrared linescanners, and thermal imagers. Raytek MP150 infrared linescanners ensure correct thermal treatment and 100% quality control and documentation of processed parts such as light-weight pillars. They achieve a superior frequency of up to 150 lines per second and a high optical resolution of up to 150:1, enabling detailed thermal images from a longer distance. Email: www. Issue 23 PECM 86
