Fast-Response pH Sensor For Industrial Applications
ABB now offers the Endura TBX587 Retractable pH sensor that targets 1″ NPT process connections found in sample lines in a range of industrial applications. This convenient new system incorporates a number of innovative design features, including a temperature compensation element at the tip of the sensor to provide response times up to 6x faster then conventional gel-filled pH sensors. The Endura TBX587 is based on ABB’s highly successful solid state, Next Step Reference design that stands up to the type of chemical poisoning and build-up often found in strong chemical processes and slurries. 316 Stainless hardware is standard, with options for Hastelloy and Titanium metallic fittings.

Rugged And Simplified Machine Monitoring
The SKF Machine Condition Advisor (MCA) is a rugged, easy-to-use, hand-held device that measures vibration signals and temperature simultaneously to indicate machine health or bearing damage, and provides early warning of machine problems before a costly breakdown occurs. It simultaneously measures vibration signals from 10 to 1000 Hz and temperature from -20 to 200 C (-4 to 392 F) and displays the values in Metric or English on a bright backlit LCD. The SKF MCA is ergonomically designed and uses an environmentally friendly rechargeable Lithium ion battery. An optional external vibration sensor with a magnet provides convenience for hard-to-reach surfaces and more repeatable and accurate measurements.

Minimize Dangerous Arc-Fault Energy
Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories’ new arc-flash detection (AFD) relay provides fully automatic protection against arc-flash events. The SEL-751A Feeder Protection Relay uses fiber-optic, arc-flash light sensors to detect the light created by an arc-flash event. To prevent false tripping, the SEL-751A looks for an overcurrent that coincides with the light flash. When both conditions are met, the AFD solution sends a trip signal to the circuit breaker in as fast as 2 ms. This fast tripping significantly reducing the damage-causing energy released by the arc-flash event.
