Chromalox Electronic Chart Recorder allows precise trending and recording, letting users monitor up to 18 process sensors for recording, storing and analyzing process critical data. The ECR1 is a paperless recorder that requires little set up.
Data is recorded on a standard 16MB compact Flash card, giving it 10 times more capacity than competitive systems. The removable cards make it easy to transfer information to a computer for permanent storage and analysis. Data can also be downloaded directly to a PC via the unit's Ethernet port. Many combinations of digital inputs and outputs can be programmed for triggering events or alarms. The ECR1 is configured through a series of six slots, each accepting a card with three sensor inputs, six digital inputs or outputs. When all six slots are filled with sensor input cards, the recorder will capture 18 process variables per second. Data can be displayed with charts or bar graphs. Pittsburgh, PA www.chromalox.com

The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
