  • KELLER LoRa Level Sensor in the Grensmaas

    The Grensmaas project gives more space to the Maas to limit tidal waves, and thus floods, after severe rainfall. The Grensmaas is the unnavigable part of the Meuse, about 47 kilometres long and since 1839 the border between Belgium and the Netherlands. In summer, the river is sometimes fordable, but during heavy rainfall it can swell to an enormous mass of water that caused floods in the past. A capricious rain river.
    The transportation and production of the byproduct from the excavation, a mixture of the sand and gravel, is hugely dependent on the water level in the Meuse. As the water level fluctuates greatly, which affects the operation of the locks, accurate water level and temperature monitor was required. Mounting a Keller 26X level sensor onto a mooring post with it's ability to communicate all this information to the operations offices with the cloud via a LoRa network.
    The KELLER ADT1 LoRa telemetry modem and Series 26X digital level sensor ensure the continuity of this project.

  • New Optris CT 4ML High speed pyrometer for fast moving objects

    In this video, Maik, from Optris, demonstrates the capabilities of our new high-speed pyrometer, Optris CT 4ML.

    The CT 4ML has been especially designed for measuring temperatures of fast-moving objects. The ultra-fast exposure time of just 90 µs makes it the ideal pyrometer for fast high-volume production and packaging processes (eg. PET preform temperature monitoring) and high-speed traffic safety applications, like hot axle box detection on railways.

  • When Temperature matters.

    Viral epidemics like SARS, MERS, swine flu, or the current coronavirus / COVID-19 created a worldwide demand for infrared cameras able to screen for a fever condition in humans. Optris off rs an excellent solution for this.
    As employees return to work now after virus-related shelter-in-place regulations are lifted, it is critical for companies to ensure the health of this returning workforce is not compromised by workers who may contract a virus outside the facility.
    The Fever screening system can be used in different variants and application areas - so individual scans of single persons or crowd-based screening of larger groups of people can be implemented.
