Solatron ISA Offers Integrated Flow Metering Solution for Subsea Applications

Solartron ISA, a world leader in wet gas flow meters for topside and subsea applications, now offers an integrated flow metering solution on its digital Seastream flow meters, eliminating the need to manually enter complex flow algorithms into a Master Control System. The built-in Seastream FloCalculator flow meter removes complexity and provides unrivalled accuracy through a direct flow measurement output. The result is both lower cost and enhanced well production.

Accurate flow rate measurements require measuring the following variables: differential pressure (DP), pressure (P), and temperature (T). The FloCalculator located within digital Seastream digital flow meters produces the DP and P variables as standard. The process temperature can be fed in from a network master manually or read directly from an external sensor. The mass flow, actual volumetric and standard volumetric flow rates are then provided along with standard process variable outputs.

Solartron ISA customizes each of its subsea meters to ensure compatibility with other project equipment such as remotely operated vehicles, subsea trees, gathering lines, available power and communication protocols. The Seastream FloCalculator also offers a high level of customization with advanced set up parameters, such as temperature correction method, actual fluid density method, polynomial coefficients and meter calibration data. All are configurable using off-the-shelf CANopen network software.

Solartron ISA is among the pioneers of wet gas and subsea flow measurement, including deepwater and ultra-deep water applications. Its flow meters have an unsurpassed field service history, even in the most demanding and hostile installation environments. Its Seastream (single phase) flow meters were specifically developed for subsea injection metering, including water injection, methanol injection and gas lift, and have played a key role in optimizing oil and gas recovery from marginal fields.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
