  • IIoT Sensors and Industry Use Cases

    The term “Internet of Things”, or IoT, has been making waves in the industrial, commercial, manufacturing and consumer markets over the past years since the concept was formerly introduced in 2012 by the The Global Standards Initiative on Internet of Things (IoT-GSI). Coined as a term for computing devices that can perceive the world without relying on humans for data input, the ...

  • High frequency monitoring needed to protect UK rivers - Case Study

    The science behind nutrient pollution in rivers is still poorly understood despite the fact that nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the UK’s rivers are mostly unacceptable, although an element of uncertainty exists about what an acceptable level actually is. Key to improving our understanding of the sources and impacts of nutrient pollution is high-resolution monitoring across a broad ...

  • Fundamentals of Multi-Sensor Separation Systems

    This paper gives an overview of the research at the Delft University of Technology in the field of automatic quality control and sorting systems, which are applied for solid bulk materials in the recycling industry. From theory it is known that a simultaneous detection of several features with sensors of different detection principles improves the quality of the classification dramatically. ...

  • Dynamic control of nutrient-removal from industrial wastewater in a sequencing batch reactor, using common and low-cost online sensors

    On-line control of the biological treatment process is an innovative tool to cope with variable concentrations of chemical oxygen demand and nutrients in industrial wastewater. In the present study we implemented a simple dynamic control strategy for nutrient-removal in a sequencing batch reactor (SBR) treating variable tank truck cleaning wastewater. The control system was based on derived ...

  • The recipe for the successful sales of environmental sensors

    “One accurate measurement is worth a thousand expert opinions”. This quote from Grace Hopper, the famous American computer scientist, provides a good insight of my passion for the measurement industry. There’s no wonder why I decided to meet the challenge of working at Lufft again: The company, which I already worked for from 2008 until 2012, gave me a real taste for this ...

  • Sensors & Automation to Simplify Bioprocess Operations

    Utilising sensors & automation to simplify bioprocess operations means that more work can be done in less time. By automating the routine tasks carried out in the lab, valuable time can be devoted to more important tasks. Here are two practical examples of automating routine tasks in upstream and downstream bioprocessing with relatively simple instrumentation. Automated ...

  • Determining the Right Cable Length and Output for a Sensor

    If you’re monitoring a bridge or automating a machine, a high precision sensor is a great solution, but it’s no good if the output signal can’t reach the data logger. Depending on what you need to measure and what environment you’re in, determining how long your cable must run can be crucial. High precision sensors offer three common output types: analog, digital and ...
