The AD8/AD9 series of non-invasive ultrasonic fluid monitoring sensors are ideal for critical applications to detect air or gas bubbles as well as â€˜end of sampleâ€™ flowing through small tubing. Based on a special pulsed ultrasonic technology which permits highly accurate and repeatable detection with excellent electrical noise immunity, the non-invasive design, with no contact between the sensor and the fluid, eliminates all media compatibility and sterility issues. Detection can be carried out in a large variety of soft or rigid tubing with diameters from 1.6 to 25.4mm. These sensors are very compact and feature an integral programmable micro-controller to allow for custom sensor functionality or specific algorithms. This enables the AD8/AD9 standard sensor to be optimised to meet application specific requirements. Typical applications can be found in many patient-connected medical devices, chromatographs, analytical instruments and dispensing or liquid filling machines.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
