Multifunctional Tester Has Digital Communication

Meriam Instrument says the MFT 4000 is a multifunctional tester that allows users to measure pressure, differential pressure and temperature, and to measure voltage or current.

The MFT 4000's pressure modules are traceable to ±0.025% of full scale according to National Institute for Standards and Technology standards. The modules are temperature compensated for accuracy across a broad temperature range.

The MFT 4000 features a 128 x 128 pixel graphic display and power is supplied by six AA batteries or an optional auxiliary power adapter.

Miniconoscan 3000 Makes 3-D Measurements


The Miniconoscan 3000 from Optimet.

Optimet says the Miniconoscan 3000 is suited for making accurate, repeatable, 3-D, noncontact, collinear, precision measurements of metal, plastic and rubber industrial molds, machined parts and tools.

The Miniconoscan 3000 uses conoscopic holography to measure up to 500 points per second dynamically, while the stages are in motion.

By changing the lens on the probe, the user can measure with exactness any length from a submicron to 200 mm. For most applications, the precision and repeatability are greater than 1/8,000th of the working range.

Measuring System Gauges Shaft-Type Products

Marposs Corp. says its Opto-Quick noncontact infrared measuring system for shaft-type products requires one master to calibrate the gage and features repeatability of 0.5 µm (diameter) and 6 µm (length).

Measurements are made using an infrared emitter and linear charge coupled device array. Filters and algorithms provide accurate measurements in harsh environments containing smoke, dirt particles and steam.

Opto-Quick provides diameter measurements over a 20 mm or 40 mm range, with lengths measured on centers or V locators from 0 to 420 mm or 0 to 740 mm in the two basic configurations.

Gas Analyzer Measures Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide

Servomex says the 1450D Food Pack Gas Analyzer offers accurate analysis of oxygen and carbon dioxide in soft packages or rigid containers. The 1450D also ensures the correct gas mixture is used and the packaging material and seal are of good quality.

The analyzer uses discrete measurement modules to provide an oxygen or carbon dioxide measurement in the range of 0 to 100%. Each measurement is displayed on a separate 3-digit LCD display with a resolution of 0.1%.

The analyzer comes with an accessory kit containing sample filters, needles, calibration nozzle, syringe, sample probe, self-adhesive sample seals and septa.

Transducer Measures Velocity and Temperature


The AVT air flow transducer from Cambridge AccuSense.

The AVT from Cambridge AccuSense is an air flow transducer that simultaneously measures air velocity and air temperature in real time.

AVT's temperature compensation algorithm allows for accurate readings from 10° C to 60° C and offers two accuracy ranges for air velocity--8% of the reading between 10° C and 60° C and 5% of the reading between 10° C and 60° C. For temperature, the accuracy is ±0.5° C between 10° C and 70° C.

AccuSense says the transducer uses thermistor technology to retain its calibration over time and is not sensitive to supply voltage because it accepts from 12 to 24 volts DC.
