Details

The Extech Temperature PID Controller uses Fuzzy Logid PID and soft-start features to protect heaters from cold starts. The PID plus Fuzzy Logic tackles the most demanding applications, eliminating over-shoot, unwanted process fluctuations, and drift. The soft-start feature is ideally suited for processes such as in the Thermo-Plastics industry, where careful and exact slow heating of products is required. 

 

The dual 4-digit LED displays for processes and setpoint values. Programming and navigation are made easy with the user-friendly menus and tactile keypad. The manual mode allows users to override automatic control and drive the controller output higher or lower. The one-touch auto tuning is available for quick set-up and stable, precise control. Two latching alarm relays standard with 8 alarm modes plus advanced timer modes. 

 

The single stage ramp and soak program with ramp-to-setpoint limit can be combined with the soft start feature for critical process demands. The controller accepts thermocouple and RTD inputs. The temperature display is °F or °C selectable, the thermocouple input has 9 selectable types, and the RTD input has 2 selectable types from the display menu without the need for hardware modification.

Researchers Find Link Between Forest Fires And Health

Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley are figuring out when it comes to forest fires, sometimes you’ve just got to let it burn. Gabrielle Boisramé, a hydrologist with the university, and a team of fellow researchers wanted to figure out if the standard practice of fire suppression would have any impact on the flow of water through the forest. To do so, they used the Illilouette Creek basin of Yosemite National Park as the setting for a natural experiment. In that specific plot, when lightning strikes on dry, hot days and starts a fire, land managers let it burn out on its own, rather than suppress the blaze. Park employees adopted this practice in the area in the 1970s and have stuck with it since then.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.
