INTEK Inc., developer and manufacturer of RheoVac line flow instruments for liquid and gas flow monitoring, now offers the RheoVac Sentry Monitoring System for real-time, multi-point monitoring of condenser air in-leakage within steam turbine power plants. The real time data provided by the RheoVac Sentry system allows plant personnel to easily determine if air in-leakage, degraded exhauster equipment, or fouled condenser tubing is the cause of excess back pressure.

The new vent-captor from weber Sensors Inc. (www.captor.com), measures flow of air or gaseous media, utilizing a calorimetric principle pioneered by weber. The vent-captor has no moving parts, can measure low flow rates (0-1 meter/second) as well as high (0-30 meters/second), can operate as a single or dual set point alarm or control or provide a linearized, 4-20 MA analog output for metering. Unique features include field adjustable span and set point with LED indication of flow and optional stainless steel housing.

The new ethernet hub 4900 series is an 8 port optical hub also with internal power supplies. All hubs are available with 850nm and 1310nm multi-mode and 1350nm single-mode optics. The 4900 series devices can be powered directly by 24 to 48Vdc or 90 to 250Vac/dc. All power supplies are SWC to ANSI/IEEE and IEC, and all products are compatible with IEEE 10Base-T and 10Base-FL standards. The 4900 hub works with DYMEC’s family of hardened ethernet links.

Tester

The open neutral tester from Sure Proof Testing (www.suretest001.com) has a built-in feature to allow service technicians to apply a load to the service panel with the flip of a switch. It can apply a load to each hot leg by changing the switch direction. Used to locate poor connections and broken conductors, the open neutral tester is fine for both single phase (120/240) and three phase (120/208). It can even test four-wire subfeeds for modulars and mobile homes.

Control systems

The human machine interface (HMI) protection, monitoring, and control systems for distribution substations are now available. The HMI complements protection and control devices by enabling users to monitor and manipulate them from an HMI-equipped PC (to be located wherever it is needed). Communications to a remote HMI or supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system and dial-in/dial-out capabilities are also supported. Customized systems are available to meet specific customer requirements.

The new Phaser programmable power transducer has metering-class accuracy, disturbance and analyzer speed, and measures each phase voltage and current over ten thousand times each second. Digital signal processing simultaneously distills this data into every major electrical variable-from per-phase THD to 3-phase reactive power-in under three cycles. This transducer has a standard 9-pin serial port and DC volt output options.
