Honeywell Industrial Automation has released their new MC Toolkit, a pocket configurator that
connects to a Pocket PC for communication with DE and HART transmitters.
TRACE Technology (www.tracetechnology.com) has a handy product to help manage
hydrocarbon and sulphur emissions on analyser vents in classified areas. The TRACErase uses a
catalytic reaction process to convert the emissions to water and CO2.
Staying with Analysers, Great Britain based company Palintest (www.palintest.com) have
developed high quality plastic sample tubes equal to the traditional glass units. Typical
environments where this is the case include food and pharmaceuticals.
Buhler (www.buhler-ratingen.com) has released two new series of pumps compliant with the
ATEX 95 (100a) regulations. The P 2.2 and 2.4 are supplied as modular packages that can be
suited to the task at hand.
The Endress+Hauser Energy Manager is a field mounted unit that can determine energy levels in
a circuit, display the information locally, log it, and communicate it on to another control system.
E+H have also released the TopCal S pH system for use in slurries and mining applications. The
TopCal S has a fully automated retractable clean and buffing cycle for the electrodes.
RTM Group member Arkon (www.arkon.co.uk) has a new flat electromagnetic flowmeter
suitable for use in flumes. Accuracy ranges between 2 and 4% and can be used in Zone 2 areas.
EuroNorm Standard EN60204 indicates wire colours are to conform to the following:
Black: Main electrical circuit (AC & DC)
Red: Control electrical circuit (AC)
Blue: Control electrical circuit (DC)
Orange: External energy
Light blue: Neutral
Green/Yellow: Ground
Motorola has recently developed ―Nano Emissive Displays‖ that are based on Carbon nanotubes.
These NEDs can be used to excite sub-pixels on a flat TV-like piece of glass in huge arrays.
Hopes are that NED‘s will make plasma and LCD screens obsolete.
Have you ever needed to focus sound in a specific area, (Maxwell Smart‘s Cone of Silence comes
to mind), well American Technology Corp. (www.atcsd.com) have figured out a way to use
Hypersonic Sound Technology to do just that. Huge potential for this exists in the noisy plant
environments.
Do you think you are a computer buff? If so you may want to have a look at the Computer
History Museum web site at www.computerhistory.org.
Emerson Process Management has a new free chlorine measurement system that does not require
reagents or sampling systems to measure free chlorine.
Another British company, Ashe Morris Ltd. (www.ashemorris.co.uk) has developed a novel heat
exchanger that changes heat transfer area to manage the heating or cooling load.
More British knowledge can be downloaded from the GAMBICA web site at
www.gambica.org.uk/newsite/public/html on topics of enclosures and variable speed drives.
A novel binary actuating valve that does not require energy to maintain its state has been
developed by Camcon Technology Ltd. (www.camcontec.com). The rolling swing valve uses a
short electrical pulse to alter the magnetic field retaining the armature, which causes it to rapidly
move to the other position.

Box‘ from Visual Controls Limited. The Babel Box can translate between more than 70 protocols
as listed on their web site at www.visualcontrols.co.uk/babelbox.htm.
Finnish company Outokumpu and UK based Malvern Process Systems have jointly developed a
new laser diffraction-based on-stream particle analyser for use in slurry applications, particularly
mineral slurries. The PSI 500 uses a highly sophisticated diluter unit to ensure delivery of the
appropriate sample concentration to the optical sensor. More information on these products can
be found at www.outokumpu.com
Continuing with sample conditioning, Waters Equipment Company (www.watersequipment.com)
have released a new series of single point sample conditioning modules capable of pressures to

interesting presentations on new developments in this area. Copies of the presentations can be
downloaded by registering on their web site www.iee.org and proceeding to the
www.iee.org/OnComms/PN/controlauto/coriolis.cfm page.
Automation Research Corporation (ARC) has recently updated its forecast for DCS market
growth. Part of their findings conclude that replacement of systems cannot be justified on Total
Cost of Ownership (TCO) and better ease of use as this at best provides a 25% cut in TCO which
is less than 2% of the replacement cost and since most control systems being sold today are for
replacements the market forecast was revised downward.
The European patent databases can be searched on line at www.european-patent-
office.or/espacenet/scripts/email_notific.htm. This site allows searching of the patents for all

Negative Refraction, which refracts an incident ray by the same magnitude but in the opposite
direction from the normal line as a typical material has been proven by researchers at Harvard and
Cambridge universities. It is hopeful that the results of this work will make it possible to fabricate
lenses that will allow subwavelength focusing.
