Fc Blog 0413 Lj StarOnline Demo Shows Difference 
Between LED & Halogen Sight Glass Lights


L.J. Star Inc., a provider of process observation equipment, has added an online demo to its website that uses actual photos to show how LED sight glass lights make it easier to observe chemical and pharmaceutical processes through a sight glass, compared to halogen lights. LED sight glass lights approximate daylight at mid-day (4800-6300 Kelvin) while halogen sight glass lights approximate dusk (2800 Kelvin) and cause eye strain. Through actual photos showing LED vs. Halogen lighting, process operators and process system engineers can see the difference between using LED sight glass lighting compared to traditional halogen light.

Fc Blog 0413 MacroOnline LVDT Position Sensor Guide
Macro Sensors offers an online Position Sensor Guide that is intended to help quickly identify the right LVDT Linear Position Sensor for an application based on desired options such as measurement range, output, body diameter, operating temperature, and other specs. Using selection criteria, the Position Sensor Guide filters through hundreds of sensor options to provide a short list of suggested LVDTs that meet specific specifications. The more sensor specification options chosen, the more closely the Position Sensor Guide can narrow down selection to the right standard LVDT Linear Position Sensor that matches customer requirements. The Position Selection Guide even considers certifications and approvals, as well as the LVDT’s ability to operate in different environments such as ambient/atmospheric pressure, high pressures, and subsea submersion.  

Fc Blog 0413 ParkerMulti-Platform App for Tube Fitting Identification

Parker Hannifin Corporation's Tube Fitting Division has launched Parker FittingFinder, a mobile, tablet and Web-based app that brings the hydraulic tube fitting and adapter identification process to users' fingertips. The app is designed to allow customers to quickly and easily identify and locate fittings by selecting the fitting's shape, end type, size, and material. Using that information, FittingFinder provides an "emailable" specs page containing product dimensions and a link to the fitting's CAD file on the Web. Parker FittingFinder is available for free on Android and Apple IOS devices from the App stores or from www.parkerfittingfinder.com, where users can also access a Web-based version of FittingFinder.
