What's New January 2023


OleumTech introduced two new hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas detection transmitters. The new H2S Transmitters provide continuous monitoring of air quality and generate alarms when H2S levels exceed user-configured setpoints.

The transmitters, whether wireless or hardwired, offer a measurement range of 0 to 100 ppm with a resolution of 0.1 ppm. The transmitter is equipped with a field replaceable sensor module enclosed in a 316 stainless steel housing with a steel mesh filter. The hardwired RS485 Modbus version is equipped with two solid state relay outputs as a standard, while the relay outputs are optional on the wireless version. Users can perform bump tests and acknowledge alarms using a single external button. www.oleumtech.com 


Fecon introduced the 135VRT, which has an improved loader arm design with enhanced attachment visibility. The 135VRT easily mulches material to 8 inches in diameter.

This new model features 4,150 ROC with integrated counterweight or hydraulic winch kit for improved balance with Fecon Bull Hog Mulchers. A 52-gallon fuel tank allows nearly double the run time between fill-ups. Full-coverage fuel tank guarding safeguards against damage while working, and improved sealing prevents debris ingestion. Each 135VRT comes with a VM602SS Bull Hog Forestry Mulcher equipped with bite limiting rotor for a finer output, while maintaining rotor RPMs. www.Fecon.com   


Sensirion offered its miniature CO2 sensor series, the SCD4x. The device is built on the photo-acoustic sensing principle and the patented PASens and CMOSens Technology enables the small sensor size to combine with high performance.

The integrated humidity and temperature sensor enable on-chip signal compensation and additional RH and T outputs. Also, the large supply voltage range (2.4 V-5.5 V), and adjustable power consumption make the SCD4x increases savings. The kit contains a four-pin jumper wire cable that enables fast prototyping, through integration into existing platforms like Arduino and Raspberry Pi. www.sensirion.com/scd4x 


Polygon offers composite tubes and bearings that meet the high-pressure conditions and toughest design challenges in the oil and gas industry. Applications for the high-performance composites include exploration sensor housings, valves, platform cranes and sheaves, actuators, blow-out preventers, pumps, top drives, drill components and draw works. The composites and component resins can withstand the high temperatures that oil and gas technologies are frequently subjected. The composite bearings and tubing are highly machinable and ensure the easiest possible drill-outs, ensuring efficiency in production and in the field. www.polygoncomposites.com  

Mission Secure 

Mission Secure released its Sentinel 5.0 platform, enabling Zero Trust security architectures for critical infrastructure. The platform provides context-aware cybersecurity policy monitoring and enforcement for operational technology systems.

Sentinel 5.0, Mission Secure launches a platform that allows operators to define and enforce granular policies based on a wide range of inputs, including network traffic, attempted remote access, asset firmware versions and vulnerabilities, and the actual digital or analog signal generated by physical devices. While the Sentinel 5.0 platform includes standard capabilities, the platform’s core component is a policy engine that enables highly sophisticated, OT-specific workflows. www.missionsecure.com 


Endress+Hauser  offers the Prosonic Flow P 500 measuring system, a device that requires only minimal straight inlet runs and can be installed directly onto the exterior of the pipe, so there is no need to interrupt operations.

In contrast to mechanical meters with high maintenance requirements, ultrasonic flowmeters have no moving parts. It can be mounted on a wide variety of pipeline types, including  steel or cast-iron and plastic. A special, maintenance-free contact foil (coupling pad) provides optimum sound transmission between the sensor surface and the pipe. Depending on the line size, fluid, and pipe material, the sensors are delivered with different ultrasonic frequencies (0.3, 0.5, 1, 2, or 5 MHz) to provide maximum signal quality, and thus a high level of accuracy and repeatability. www.endress.com 


Dinkle International added to its 0229 Series portfolio of connectors used to provide pluggable connectivity between wires for inline splicing, and from wires to printed circuit boards (PCBs).

The compact units are designed for installation in constrained spaces and are available in mating plug designs with various pin counts of up to 40 poles. The connectors work with wire sizes from 28 AWG to 14 AWG solid or stranded conductor. In addition, Dinkle’s spring cage is easily operated, using press-to-release tabs, so users can install and remove any solid or stranded wires as needed without tools. Contact surfaces are wide, ensuring reliable operation at up to 300 V and 12 A (UL). The connectors are compliant with UL 1059 and IEC 61984. www.dinkle.com/en
