Nice evaluation. You really need to be practical and see every detail of the devices you select and use. The quality is important.

That's a great observation, Pubudu - periodic checks are always valuable to ensure that the sensors are calibrated according to their original specs. Their position in the system and the type of system (production versus monitoring for example) will certainly have an effect on deciding what procedures should be put in place to ensure accuracy.

Great article brian, I do believe that all these sensors should  be pay regular attention for the accuracy in order to have accurate processing.

Challenge of Sensor Selection

Very interesting and informative article. As a test engineer, sensor selection is often a task that must be addressed. Often our test sets are for new products which brings a whole new set of variables to consider. I particularly appreciated the statement, "A specific concern at this point is an awareness of the material being measured and its potential impact on the level sensor over time." It is so important to understand and account for every possible variable not only for the initial build, but also for its performance over time. Excellent list of what to consider in level measurenent device seection which can also be adjusted to fit a variety of sensor applications.

The use of ZNE technology buildings not only reduces cost and creates renewable energy, but it can give a boost to the economy. The implementation and execution will require a workforce, which means the result can be increased employment.
The use of CFD is more profound in automobile design because of the diverse physics involved. It can be used to optimize components for downsizing and reducing the environmental footprint while maintaining or improving operational efficiency.
A Detroit automaker was struggling with a semi-manual, labor-intensive parts receiving process. Workers had enter parts into a spreadsheet manually at a stationary workstation. This stopped the receiving process dead in its tracks. A better system was needed.
Pressure sensors can be used in a wide range of applications. It’s imperative that they’re suited for use in hazardous situations and are fully compliant with one of several protection standards.
