The Ashcroft® multi-function instrument features the Type 2274 digital gauge with highly visible, local pressure indication; one or two SPDT switches; a 4-20 mA output signal; min/max feature; and a weatherproof case to IP65. The unit is mounted on an Ashcroft® Type 80 flow-through isolation ring that incorporates a built-in needle valve to dampen pulsation and allows the process to be locked out for safe removal of the instrument for recalibration. The assembly takes up less space, has fewer leak paths and is less costly than buying individual instruments with these features.
Bird repeller BroadBand
PRO targets pest birds with an unrelenting combination of four different sound types: 1) distress cries to indicate danger to pigeons, starlings, gulls and more, 2) predator cries, like falcons and hawks, to add realism, 3) general harassments for an all-bird defense, and 4) ultrasonic waves to guard day and night. The system is the first to combine all four technologies on one machine. Sound waves move from speaker to speaker for a constant, menacing defense. This sound attack forces birds to leave for good, yet it’s harmless to the birds and the environment. “Surround sound” directional speakers are separate from the control box to offer greatest all-around flexibility.
Love Controls, a Division of Dwyer Instruments, has introduced the new Series TID Temperature/Process Indicator. The affordable series allows the user to monitor temperature or a process value. Temperature ranges are available from -58 to 302oF using one of the company’s PTC or NTC thermistors. Process values can be displayed from -999 to 999 counts using a 4-20 mA signal from one of its various transmitters. The process indicator has an adjustable span and zero on the 4-20 mA models. The Series TID is available in red, green or blue display.

Camera inspection system
The new BackEyeTM auxiliary camera from Envirosight lets a Rovver operator see behind the crawler in order to steer around obstacles and prevent cable tangles during reverse travel. The accessory also includes three forward-facing narrow-beam LED lamps to improve forward viewing. It is available as a retrofit for existing 125/225 crawlers, and as an option for new 125/225 crawlers.
Industrial Scientific has launched the MX6 iBridTM, the first gas monitor to feature a full-color LCD display screen. The monitor is designed to detect from one to six gases including oxygen, combustible gases and up to four toxic gases. The color display improves safety with clear readings in low-light, bright-light or anywhere in between. The display also supports on-board graphing and a menu-driven PEG (Portable Embedded GUI) operating system that allows the user to step through instrument functions with an intuitive menu and the instrument’s five-way navigation button.

Radar level transmitter
Siemens Energy & Automation has released the SITRANS LR 250 Radar Level transmitter with new “Process Intelligence” advanced signal processing. This plug-and-play, compact, 25 GHz 2-wire device can be used to measure a variety of liquid and slurry level applications. Designed for measurements up to 66 feet, the new transmitter is well suited for use in corrosive atmospheres. The compact radar horn antenna (from 1½" to 4" in diameter) allows for installation in smaller openings, and the narrow, high frequency beam ensures minimal interference from vessel walls. A high frequency, narrow transmission pulse means the complete vessel capacity can be measured.
