Micro-graphic panels

The C-more Micro-Graphic panel line now includes six-inch display models. The new touch style graphic/text panels offer a 320x240 pixel graphical display that supports bitmap files. Used in a horizontal orientation, the 6-inch C-more micro supports 40 lines by 80 characters of static text; 53 lines by 60 characters are supported in vertical orientation. Two optional keypad bezels are available for either horizontal or vertical panel mounting. The C-more 6" panels are priced at $299. The free panel configuration software features a built-in project simulator.

Switchboard meters

The back-lit switchboard meters are 4 ¼" and available with either a white or red scale and accept inputs of DCV, DCA, ACV or ACA. The long-lasting LED illumination eliminates the need for frequent replacement of incandescent lamps. Various DC back-light voltages are available. This series of meters complements the broad line of switchboard and panel meters, power monitoring instruments and portable test instruments available from Yokogawa.

Sealless, non-metallic pumps

The Composite Mag Drive (CMD) is a series of sealless, non-metallic pumps specially designed for crucial liquid containment applications, including corrosive chemicals, volatile organic chemicals, and flammable liquids. Due to the CMD's engineered-fluoropolymer and ceramic-wetted material design and construction, the series of pumps can handle the entire pH range and offers advanced durability, broader compatibility, and corrosion resistance. The CMD series offers: 100% renewable performance with use of Viking's recommended spare parts kit; a magnet system with a patent-pending spline design that allows the magnet to self-align while floating on the shaft with no added fasteners; and self-lubricating, heavy-duty bearings with patent-bearing geometry that allow dry-run capabilities.

Industrial accelerometer

The 780A industrial accelerometer is narrow, low-profile, and lightweight, making it ideal for walk-around collection of vibration monitoring data. The 780A is a full performance, 100 mV/g general purpose vibration sensor with a tight +5% tolerance and a broad 3dB frequency response from 0.4 Hz to 14 kHz. It was designed with a standard 2-pin, MIL-C-5015 connector so it is compatible with the existing cabling infrastructure and fits the same connector used on the majority of industrial accelerometers.  The 780A accelerometer is ideal for route-based data collection because it is small and lightweight for easy handling.

Rotary level indicators

The Maxima+ Series of genuine fail-safe rotary level indicators offer the ability to continuously self-diagnose and, in the event of failure, give an immediate warning with an instantaneous corrective response. The Maxima+ series was designed for integration into process control systems, with reliable, super-smart circuitry that allows both materials level monitoring and automatic control of the process system. The supervisory circuit of the Maxima+ sends a signal to an external LED, which indicates the sensor's status, giving a quick visual monitoring of paddle rotation, covered condition or fault condition. A pulse status relay is also provided for remote status monitoring.

Volume chamber

The Magnum Low Pro volume chamber M-80 offers a range from near absolute 30"Hg to 80psi with a very high resolution 0.0005psi. The most common aspect to the family of Magnum Pro instruments is they have earned a reputation for being "virtually indestructible." The M-80's other major design advantage is it is the only volume chamber to use a patented power drive system to rapidly span the range.  This gives the user the ability to reach its target pressure in seconds vs. minutes.
