Looking for excellence

Looking for excellence Monitran will be using Southern Manufacturing and Electronics 2014 to showcase its recently announced intrinsically safe sensors. Certified to ATEX and IECEx Group II, the MTN/2285IT and MTN/2285IT series of sensors are all sealed to IP67, are available with integral cables or 4-pin connectors and are ideal for measuring vibration levels and temperature in areas where explosive gases, liquids or dust may be present.

Monitran will also be showcasing its microcontroller-based monitoring system, MTN/5000. Based on a system developed for monitoring a hovercraft's lift and propulsion fans, and subsequently adapted for other applications, the MTN/5000 has matured into an off-the-shelf product. Housed in an extruded aluminium enclosure the system features a 3.5 inch TFT touch screen with a high-performance ARM Cortex-M3 processor.

It has an easy-to-navigate menu that enables users to set data sampling periods, ranges and accuracy levels plus vibration threshold (alarm) levels on a channel-by-channel basis or across all 12 channels. In addition, the system has 12 digital I/O channels that can be used for multiple alarms or a communication channel. Integration is also possible via Ethernet plus the raw signals from the sensors are made available via BNCs for bearing analysis.

Andy Anthony, Monitran's Managing Director, comments: "Our fit-for-purpose sensors and versatile monitoring systems continue to provide testimony to Monitran's ability to design, manufacture and supply marketing-leading solutions."

Monitran will also be using Southern Manufacturing and Electronics to meet with customers to discuss its turnkey engineering services.
