Details

The PC320 Process Controller is reliable, accurate, and suitable for measuring any type of 2 and 3 wire sensors with 4-20mA, 0-1 volt, and 0-5 volt outputs.  The process controllers come pre-programmed for use with 12 different common sensor types and appropriate selectable engineering units.  In addition you can program the PC320 process controllers to monitor any type of custom sensor in any units you define.  Custom user defined engineering units are also programmable for all of the process controller's standard sensor types.  Both 2-point and 3-point calibration methods are supported by the process controllers and an additional 3rd order polynomial equation can be applied to the sensor data to correct for non-linearities in sensor output.  The process controller's polynomial mode is useful for calculating other parameters based on a non-linear sensor reading such as calculating water flow rate from water level.

The process controller's LCD shows what type of sensor is being monitored, the data reading averaged over a user programmable time period, and the engineering units selected.  The display also shows the current On or Off state for each of the process controller's 4 relays.  Two other display modes are available on the PC320 process controllers.  One shows the maximum and minimum process controller sensor readings since last reset.  Another mode displays the current state of any of the process controller's 4 relays in real time, the sensor reading that caused the last triggering event, and the On or Off time remaining in the control cycle.  The process controller's LCD can be backlit for easy viewing at all times and offers a power saving mode for limiting current drain in battery powered applications.

Four relays are provided by the PC320 process controllers for controlling external devices including samplers, alarms, mixers, pumps, control valves, floodgates and telemetry systems.  Each of the process controller's relays are independently programmable to trigger on maximum and/or minimum threshold levels in one of five different control modes.  Relay operation is defined by setting upper and lower sensor threshold levels and turning relays on when the process controller's sensor reading exceeds a normally defined range.  Both normally open and normally closed relay contacts are provided by the process controllers.  The process controller's relay modes include a One Time trigger that will engage a relay one time only for a programmed on time period when a sensor reading falls outside of a defined normal range.  The Steady state mode will turn on a relay as long as the process controller's sensor reading is out of the normal range.  The Cyclic mode will continually turn a relay on and off for user definable on and off times while the process controller's sensor reading is outside of normal range.  Additionally, High Control and Low Control Modes are also provided the process controllers.  These modes are used by the process controllers for maintaining a sensor reading within a specific range; for example keeping the water level in a tank between two predefined levels.  A sixth process controller relay mode allows a relay to be deactivated regardless of settings.  There are also programmable Delay Times and Hysteresis available for the process controllers.  Setting a Delay Time will delay a process controller's relay from turning on for that amount of time when a sensor reading falls outside of normal range.  This is used to limit the effect of rapidly changing sensor readings and keeping the process controller's relays from reacting quickly to very small changes near a threshold setting.  The process controller's Hysteresis function allows the relay to remain on until the sensor reading falls into the normal range again, plus a defined hysteresis percentage.  This also prevents the process controller's relays from overreacting to rapidly changing events near a threshold level.  A test mode is provided for manually testing the process controller's relay operation.  A fully scalable 4-20mA output is available for recording the process controller's sensor data readings by devices like data loggers, PLC's, telemetry systems, and chart recorders.

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.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
