  • Smart meters: Truly a cure for energy blindness?

    And now for a dose of reality.   No doubt smart meters are a good thing, but even their most ardent fans must admit that a degree of hoopla surrounds these little digital boxes. We hear that if consumers can just see how much power they use in real time, and what it costs, our energy woes will be no more.   Smart meters will even cure the blind. The energy blind that ...

  • New ISFET pH meter PCE-ISFET

    The new PCE-ISFET pH meter from PCE Instruments has been designed for food applications. The glass free electrode makes it particularly safe to use in food production as no glass splinters can get into the food if the electrode breaks. Unlike glass pH electrodes, ISFET pH sensors are highly resilient and do not require wet storage. They give reliable results under tough conditions. The PCE-ISFET ...
