March 2021 Tornadoes

According to data from NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center, during March, there were 191 preliminary tornado reports. This is more than double the 1991-2010 average of 80 tornadoes for the month of March. More than half of the March tornadoes occurred during four days in the middle and end of the month. These days of highest tornado frequency are summarized. On March 13, there were 27 tornadoes that were clustered in the Texas Panhandle. Source: State of the Climate Report …

Some predictions of a validated physical model of Pt–Rh thermocouple drift above 1200 ° C

A simple model was recently presented which relates the electromotive force (emf) drift rate of Pt–Rh thermoelements to the vapour pressure of Pt and Rh oxides. The model assumes that the evaporation of these oxides gives rise to a continuously changing concentration of Pt and Rh, at different rates along the length of the wires, which causes a change in the Seebeck coefficient. The model was tested by comparison with high precision measurements under comparable circumstances. By considering various thermocouples of…

Distribution identification and information loss in a measurement uncertainty network

Measurement uncertainty is an increasingly important consideration in many applications demanding extreme performance levels. In the era of the internet of things and 5G connectivity we can learn more about device performance by utilising the increasing amount of data produced. These data require appropriate information infrastructure to facilitate continuous updating of device performance knowledge. This paper presents the results of a study which NPL undertook with a leading test and measurement device manufacturer to examine how measurement uncertainty propagates through the…

Top 4 Reasons Why Warehouse Mapping is Vital for Success

Top 4 Reasons Why Warehouse Mapping is Vital for Success

Temperature mapping for warehouses is one thing that shouldn’t be overlooked. In warehouses, especially larger facilities, temperature and humidity levels tend to fluctuate which can cause unstable conditions for perishable goods. Since storage requirements vary from product to product, warehouse mapping studies are necessary to prevent product and monetary loss.

The Science Behind CAN Bus and Why It’s Important to Monitor

The Science Behind CAN Bus and Why It’s Important to Monitor

A vehicle’s Controller Area Network System, or CAN, is the system that connects all of the essential Electrical Control Units, or ECUs. At its core, it is a centralized network of communications that allows the vehicle to operate and function. It does this by providing each individual system with the ability to communicate with one another. Source: MadgeTech…
