Monitoring Products at London Olympic and Paralympic Games

  • PDF

altModern Water (UK) the owner of water technologies for the production of fresh water and monitoring of water quality, is pleased to announce that two of its Microtox M500 monitoring products were successfully used during the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics in London.

Microtox is an industry product which detects toxins in water and has been used at every summer Olympics and Paralympics since 1984. Once again this year, Thames Water, the provider of all the drinking water for the 2012 Olympic Games, decided to use the Microtox M500 units to test drinking water at the Olympic Park during the Games.

The New Catalogue of Pyroelectric Detectors Now Available

  • PDF

altThe new Infratec (Germany) catalogue edition for the sensor division is now available. According to Infratec's product portfolio extension, in their catalogue you can now find data sheets and circuit examples of the new single channel detectors LME-336 and LME-352 with very low power consumption. The group of multi-colour detectors has been extended to include the miniature 2-channel detector LIM-102 in TO46 housing and the 3-channel detector LIM-253 in TO39 housing. Detectors with the tunable Fabry-Pérot-Filter have been extended to now include the long-wave option LFP-80105.

Abandoned mine water levels being monitored

  • PDF

altThe Environment Agency of England and Wales (EA) is monitoring water levels at an abandoned mine near Baldhu, Cornwall amid fears that overflow from the site could impact groundwater supplies in the area.

Site operator Veolia has alerted the EA to the issue at the Wheal Jane mine, with water levels continuing to rise in the main mineshaft. This poses the risk of water contamination from the structure into the nearby Carnon River and Fal Estuary.

New Compact Turbimeter for Reliable Turbidity Measurement

  • PDF

altPalintest Ltd (UK), specialists in water analysis technology, is delighted to announce the launch of the new Compact Turbimeter featuring QuadoptiX advanced testing technology.

Designed for the field professional to test turbidity in drinking water, wastewater and surface water, the Compact Turbimeter is built around the new QuadoptiX optical bench. This new technology effectively uses two independent turbidity measurement systems for dual validation, resulting in improved reliability and accuracy – especially for samples with mobile or settling matter.

New Tadpole GPRS Data Logger Launched

  • PDF

altWith the costs of mobile communications falling and the costs of site visits rising, now is the time to switch from data loggers to wireless telemetry for routine data collection.

Isodaq Technology (UK) has launched Tadpole, which sets new standards for ease of deployment in tight spaces and harsh environments. Tadpole is a fully-fledged GPRS RTU outstation water-proofed to IP68 standards with the main board sealed for life, but with SIM cards and batteries field exchangeable, making Tadpole ideal for rapid deployment on short-term surveys.

Next-Generation Micro PMT Devices for Point-of-Care Testing and Other Applications

  • PDF

altHamamatsu Photonics K.K. (UK) has announced that from the 1st November 2012, it will begin shipping samples of its new μPMT (Micro PMT) assembly to manufacturers of analytical and measurement instruments.

The μPMT is a next-generation, ultra-compact photomultiplier tube that is fabricated through the use of in-house semiconductor processes for MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) devices. It can be mass produced, is only 1/7th of the volume and 1/9th of the weight of the smallest conventional photomultiplier tube.

New Environmental Noise Calculation Software Version

  • PDF

altA powerful and intuitive software for environmental noise calculation has become available with Brüel & Kjær’s (UK) Predictor-LimA Type 7810, with more applications than ever thanks to the release of the ninth version.

Predictor-LimA maps environmental noise using coloured contours that can be overlaid on 3D models, photographic images, or online maps, making it easy for non-experts to understand.

The new software has improved functionality and workflow support to make environmental noise mapping much simpler. It’s suitable for modelling shooting ranges due to 3D source directivity, which is necessary for modelling supersonic sources.

New Early Flood Warning Systems

  • PDF

altFlooding, both predicted and sudden, has become an increasingly common phenomenon in recent years. Many suffering localities have been un- or under-prepared, with little reason to believe they were at risk until it was too late. A reliable and cost-effective advance warning system that continuously monitors rivers, storm drains and overflows for rising water levels can save lives and protect property, alerting authorities and communities to impending danger.

The SonicSens 2 battery-powered ultrasonic level and flow sensor, from specialist manufacturer HWM (UK), offers non-contact, accurate, remote and wireless monitoring of water levels and flow rates. The ultrasonic sensor precisely measures the distance to (and therefore level of) the water surface, and can automatically send alerts to up to 16 phone numbers when the level reaches specified thresholds. When an alarm condition activates, it can also provide accelerated dial-in functionality, allowing users to quickly access detailed, relevant and timely new information when they have to.
