CG 1100-RTP oxygen analyzers are designed to improve yields in the semiconductor industry's rapid thermal processing wafer fabrication systems. By detecting oxygen contamination at the parts-per-million level, the unit reportedly maximizes throughput by ending the purge cycle as soon as the oxygen background is acceptable. Other features are a zirconium oxide sensor for accuracy and fast response and electronic flow control allowing a range of operating pressures.

SLS190 is a sealable linear sensor that uses hybrid track technology. According to the company, the design offers benefits for system designers requiring analog position feedback, while providing an affordable solution for large volume OEM customers. The unit is designed to be interchangeable with the company's HLP190 linear potentiometer, but can be specified with a compact shaft option, which reportedly offers a dramatically reduced mounting dimension.

R-series flowmeters are designed to offer the benefits of Coriolis flow measurement technology for general-purpose applications. The units measure mass and volume or liquids, gases, and slurries, have no moving parts, and reportedly don't require recalibration or regular maintenance. They are also said to measure within 0.5% of flow rate for liquids. Four sizes are available: 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2 inch.
