Instrument Selection and Design

Instrument Selection And Design

Industrial automation requires a combination of monitoring and control functions, and the monitoring piece of that combination is based on instrumentation. In the control system environment, such instrumentation typically addresses temperature, pressure, flow, level, and analysis. Good control system design needs comprehensive understanding of the available instrumentation characteristics and how to design that instrumentation into a complete system. Goals are aimed at improving productivity, optimization, stability, reliability, safety, and continuity.
We have extensive experience in this area, and we aren't passive about staying abreast of new technologies and products.
Instrumentation used will vary with the industry, as will the types of equipment and processes being monitored, but following is a general list of instrumentation types that we employ in our control system design:
  •    Flowmeters: Orifice, Venturi, Magnetic Flometers, Coriolis, Ultrasonic, Vortex, Doppler Flowmeters
  •    Pressure And Differential Pressure Transmitters
  •    Ultrasonic And Radar Level Transmitters/Transducers
  •    Pressure Gauges
  •    Switches: Flow, Level, Pressure, Temperature
  •    Thermocouples, RTDs
  •    Particle Counters
  •    Thermal Flow Temperature Switches/Transmitters
  •    When selecting instrumentation products, we take into account client preferences and specifications, cost/performance considerations, and durability for sensors exposed to products/materials being measured and analyzed. We strive to give our clients the best performance and value for their control systems. If you have specific questions about instrument selection or brand usage, you are welcome to contact us.
