Water chillers are nothing new, with nearly an estimated 100,000 units operating in North America alone. Chillers are the cooling machines of choice to condition industrial, commercial, and institutional facilities. They are used to lower the temperatures of all kinds of equipment and processes such as: robotic machinery; semiconductors; injection and blow molding machines; welding equipment; die-casting and machine tooling; paper and cement processing; power supplies; power generation stations; compressed air and gas cooling systems; medical imaging machines; chemical, drug, food and beverage production; even simply to cool potable water to desirable levels. Whether for office comfort, keeping data server centers from overheating, or specialized industrial processes, water temperature control plays a vital role in many of the behind-the-scenes activities that affect our everyday lives.

The Proximity Mark Series is a line of position indicators with a selection of various output options. The Mark Series has three different model styles, which allow it to be used in almost any application.
Standard models in the Mark Series are weatherproof and explosion-proof, with visible position indicators. We also offer a submersible model for additional versatility. Continue reading “Product Highlight: Mark Series Position Indicators/Switches/Transmitters”
The DIN Rail Temperature/Process Controller, Series SCD, offers multiple PID loops in a compact size. Each SCD-1000 master controller can be combined with up to seven SCD-2000 slave controllers without any wires. Each controller has one universal input, one relay output, and one user selected output.
The Series SCD can be used with a Mini-Node™ Signal Converter for applications such as: oven, boiler, or chiller control; packaging equipment; environmental chambers; medical equipment; or food service equipment. The Mini-Node™ converter, Model MN-1, is a low cost device that converts half duplex RS-485 serial communications signals into a signal that can be read by any computer with a USB port.
Wiring up the MN-1 to an SCD controller can be accomplished in just a few steps, and the set up software is simple to use. Continue reading “How to Set Up and Record with a SCD and Mini-Node™ Signal Converter”
The Model TBU-00 Temperature Transmitter is a high precision temperature transmitter. Its small size and weight allow it to easily mount in most temperature sensor instrument enclosures. The TBU-00 is ideal for process applications where a 4 to 20 mA signal is required, such as: food processing equipment, boiler equipment, and refrigeration equipment.
