When it comes to Building Automation and Management Systems, companies invest in the latest and greatest technologies to optimize their process efficiency. Many hours and thousands of dollars are spent to ensure minimum power consumption and reduced heating and cooling costs. However, the conversation of protecting these capital investments are a less frequent topic of discussion. Additionally, protecting the structural integrity of the facilities can be an afterthought. Any sign of moisture and leakage can be the beginning of a serious component failure. For this type of monitoring, Dwyer Instruments, Inc. offers the Model WD Water Leak Detector for protection against potential water or liquid damage.

Level detection applications are one of the most interesting things we do at Dwyer as there are so many types of switch technologies. Even just for powder and bulk level detection, there are many ways to sense the level. Dwyer offers several different technologies for powder and bulk solids point level detection. These include: diaphragm, paddle, tilt, capacitive, and vibration. So if you’re wondering how to determine which technology is best for your application, here is a simple guide to help you select the proper technology.

In this age of virtual meetings and online connections, to “Google” something has become synonymous with quickly looking up information. For some, bookshelves are more for decor than they are functional, and trends are leading to becoming more environmentally-friendly and saving paper. Print media is not necessarily “dead,” but it is becoming much less prevalent as we journey forward in this digital age.
When speaking on digital resources, we have to take this chance to talk about some of the benefits that our digital catalog can offer. Available on both desktop (via our website) and mobile (via the app), the digital catalog allows you instantaneous access to application guides, selection guides, and product specifications.

The monitoring of water levels in boreholes in a particular region is important for a water extraction company, as it allows the water extraction to be controlled across the area to keep the water table at a consistent level throughout. However, the widespread and remote nature of these boreholes means that the communication of these water levels can be difficult and costly. Continue reading “Remote Monitoring of Borehole Water Levels”
Stability is defined as a change (or lack of change) in accuracy over a period of time.
Drift is commonly used as a specification to illustrate the stability, or change in accuracy over a period of time, commonly shown as X%/year where X = a number; i.e. 0.25%/year. In this scenario, a device with a ±1% accuracy, would be expected to have an accuracy of ±1.25% (1%+0.25%) after a period of one year. Depending on the design, brand, and range of the sensing instrument, the stability can vary widely. Continue reading “What is Stability and Why is it Important?”
