Safe is safe, right? Factors that should be considered beyond the usual characteristics when selecting safety devices

The safety characteristics of the products (for example, the KSt value or Pmax) and the plant-specific marginal conditions (volume/design strength) may influence the selection of the proper safety device. This is common knowledge that the public is well aware of. Additionally, more and more plant engineers and operators are placing a key emphasis on a proper certification and the marking of safety devices as well as system components.

A 3D Sensor System that Mimics Human Depth Perception

Many applications in the automation, robotics and quality assurance industries require detailed 3D measurements of a particular object or area. Today, active camera systems are commonly used for such tasks, which measure the depth – and thus the 3D structure of a scene – by emitting light and capturing its reflection. Due to this active illumination, such systems have difficulties coping with bright ambient light, overlapping field of views, large distances, or the presence of reflective surfaces. Also, light-scattering environmental conditions such as fog, steam or smoke can cause disruptions.

How to use online learning as a platform to develop your career in the engineering sector

Online learning

Many programmes in the past could be studied at a distance, students would use text books and mail in assignments. While this made study possible it could be quite an isolating experience. Supported online learning not only gives you access to all the materials you need but you are able to discuss ideas with fellow professionals and have live face-to-face discussions in a virtual classroom with your tutor. All you need is access to a computer with a good internet connection and a microphone, and if you want to be seen, a camera.

Managing Ex Asset Integrity: Electrical Considerations for ATEX Inspections

Many companies do not give adequate consideration to the condition of their electrical installations in relation to potentially explosive atmospheres, especially within older plants. Whilst most are concerned with ensuring completion of their hazardous area ATEX inspections and demonstrating compliance with the DSEAR regulations, ATEX 137 directive and BS EN 60079-17 standard, they tend to ignore or forget electrical testing which should be equally considered to the ATEX inspections (BS 7671-part 6 in conjunction with BS EN 60079-14 section 4.1 General Requirements, HSE 2002, HSE: ATEX and explosive atmospheres).
