Mechanical Sensor for Detection of 1 or 2 Positions

Microprecision is introducing a family of mechanical sensors for very accurate position detection. The new MP600 series of mechanical position sensors is designed to detect two positions within a single, compact electromechanical component. Two independent commutations can sense two previously defined positions to within a few microns of accuracy. The two positions can be set specifically for each application, between 0.3mm and 1.5mm. The fixed NC and NO contacts activate with no measurable hysteresis. Repeatability is less than 5 µm and, depending on cable selection, the operating temperature can go from -40°C up to 130°C. The cable can be supplied with a connector termination, typically M8 or M12.

Detecting and managing High Temperature Hydrogen Attack

Productive and profitable industrial plants rely on safe, reliable equipment to sustain expected production levels and quality standards. High temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA) can cause serious damage such as decarburization and micro-cracking in steels exposed to hydrogen at elevated temperatures and high pressure. Such damage can negatively affect tensile strength and toughness and ultimately cause failure without warning, as was the case in the disastrous 2010 Tesoro Anacortes refinery incident, where the shell of a heat exchanger ruptured catastrophically, killing seven workers.
