Wireless Data Logger Troubleshooting

Wireless Data Logger Troubleshooting

There are various reasons why a wireless data logger may not appear in the MadgeTech 4 software through the RFC1000 wireless network, or experience communication issues. To ensure that the data logger is within range of the RFC1000 wireless network for troubleshooting purposes, the data logger should be in the same room as the computer […] Source: MadgeTech…

New Regulations in Effect for U.S

New Regulations in Effect for U.S. Egg Producers

There are big changes underway for the egg industry following the recent passage of the Egg Products Inspection Regulations. Since 1970, the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) has been operating under the Egg Products Inspection Act (EPIA), but the new regulations will now bring egg products more in line with the safety standards applied to meat and poultry products.

New sensors could speed up construction schedules

How long it takes to construct a building depends in large part on when the concrete of each floor is strong enough to take on loads. Purdue University engineers have developed sensors that could safely speed up a construction timeline by determining concrete strength directly onsite in real time.

The History of HACCP: A Space Expedition

The History of HACCP: A Space Expedition

Food safety is incredibly important for food processors, one wrong move or lapse in protocol could lead to hundreds of people getting sick. A foodborne illness outbreak could result in financial and legal ruin for a business. That’s why since the 1960s, food processors have relied on the seven principles of Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, or HACCP for short, to develop their safety plans and keep consumers healthy.

How to Determine Power Consumption Using a Current Probe with the DI-4108

How to Determine Power Consumption Using a Current Probe with the DI-4108

In this article, I will show you how to display and record current (Amps) using a DATAQ Instruments model DI-4108-U, WinDaq data acquisition software and a 400 Amp AC/DC current probe (Electronic Specialties Model 697). I’ll use the current information to determine how much energy is used in a typical household appliance. I chose the Read More Source: DATAQ…

Implantable sensor could measure bodily functions — and then safely biodegrade

An international team of researchers has designed a highly sensitive flexible gas sensor that can be implanted in the body and, after it’s no longer needed, safely biodegrade into materials that are absorbed by the body. Source: What’s New in Measurement and Control?…
