Intended for industrial applications, this portable data logger measures and stores up to 32,510 Carbon Monoxide (CO) readings. The user establishes the logging rate and start time and can download the stored data by plugging the module into a PC's USB port. The unit uses Nemoto's NAP-505 electrochemical carbon monoxide gas sensor. The sensor consists of three porous noble metal electrodes separated by an acidic aqueous electrolyte and housed in a Polyphenylene Oxide (PPO) plastic package. The unit has a 0 to 1,000 ppm measurement range with a resolution of 0.5 ppm CO. For more information on Nemoto's NAP-505 Electrochemical Carbon Monoxide Gas Sensor.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
