SENSORS: The Micropulse SF fill level sensor from Balluff provides continuous, absolute fill-level measurement in applications that require adherence to the strictest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. Sensors in a sanitary manufacturing facility must be cost effective, have minimum impact upon production, and must not negatively impact the cleanliness or quality of the foods (or products) being manufactured. Made from corrosion-free stainless steel with rounded edges and minimal crevices, the Micropulse SF meets the highest international hygiene standards and fulfills strict food industry requirements. Certified to 3-A and EHEDG sanitary standards, the sensor is 100 percent stainless steel to ensure top sanitation standards and long-term service life.
Benefits include: chemically neutral for all liquids; compensates for surface foam to deliver reliable, accurate fill level values; adjustment-free installation; easy to clean in installed state (CIP - Clean in Place); withstands process temperatures up to 130C (SIP - Sterilization in Place); standard analog interface ensures wide controller compatibility and flexible installation; international certification ensures global acceptance; and highly precise measuring technology is ideal for filling or dispensing applications
The industry-standard Micropulse SF fill level sensor uses field-tested magnetostrictive technology to provide highly-precise fill level measurement. Noncontact measurement technology ensures unparalleled reliability and performance. Its continuously-variable analog output signals allow for easy connection to control systems.

There is a new cooperation between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to explore the potential alignment of their two architecture efforts: the Reference Architecture Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA).
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Design teams are operating in a business environment that increasingly requires them to collaborate and share data across extended teams, multiple organizations, and widespread locations. Autodesk’s customers are looking for a solution that eliminates project bottlenecks, such as the time-consuming and error-ridden process of shuttling design reviews and revisions back and forth among team members.
