True AnalyticsÖ - Energy Savings, Comfort, and Operational Efficiency
New STRATO Product named Tzone
Once more, STRATO is innovating! A
new digital temperature sensor compatible with the BACzone 424
(presented in April 2012) has been put on the market: The Tzone. This
intelligent sensor can display 10 real time values in addition to the
default room temperature. With this feature, the user can easily
consult different data provided by the corresponding “VAV” controller
such as the outdoor temperature, the zone discharge temperature or the
zone heating and cooling demand. Up to 8 Tzone can be linked
together to a BACzone following the RS-485 “daisy chain” standard
communication. As well, the BACzone VAV controller parameters such as
air velocity configuration can be set directly from the Tzone.

Fraden Announces New Infrared Thermometer Invention for Smartphones
Now available for licensing to qualified companies with a significant presence in the mobile phone market, the Fraden Smartphone Sensing patented technology and IP (Intellectual Property) employs a non-contact infrared sensor built into a smartphone or tablet to instantly and accurately measure patient temperature in less than one second with absolutely no contact with the human body. A priceless feature for parents with small children, nurses, doctors, caregivers or anyone that has ever had trouble taking a temperature, the sensor accurately detects infrared signals that naturally emanate from any surface. Just aim the smartphone at the face and it automatically takes the internal body temperature. A small infrared lens is positioned near the camera lens, with no protruding parts, making the device appear identical to existing smartphones. The sensor’s wide range, from -22 ║F to +400║F, offers broad applications in taking temperatures of not only humans, but also of inanimate objects in the home environment, such as kitchen (cooking and refrigeration), bathroom (baby bath water temperature), school (science class), and industry (automotive and production machinery, chemical processes, energy management, and construction).

Danfoss Introduces the 435 Series Actuator for the AB-QM Pressure Independent Control Valves
Danfoss, a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration and motion systems, recently released its new generation of 435 Series Actuators, which will replace the prior AME 15QM series of actuator for the Danfoss AB-QM pressure independent control valve (PICV). The AME 435QM and AMV 435 are the first of a new design of actuators which offer improved operation with lower power consumption. This new family of actuators requires no additional tools when it is installed to the AB-QM valve bodies. The “click” on mounting mechanism of the actuator reduces actuator installation time. Standard features for these new actuators include two selectable operation speeds, external LED for visual confirmation of actuator operation, end travel LED signaling and easy calibration via an external reset button. The 435 series of actuators are smaller and lighter than our previous model with 24 volt AC or DC power capabilities.

PeopleBot is a differential-drive robot
for service and human-robot interaction (HRI) projects. PeopleBot is
built on the robust P3-DX base, with a chest-level extension to
facilitate interaction with people. PeopleBot offers an optional
touchscreen (pictured) connected to an onboard computer, for human
interaction. PeopleBot has infrared table sensors to detect when it
approaches a table and an optional 2dof gripper with sensors to detect
and pick up a cup or other tabletop object. PeopleBot features
the same architecture as other MobileRobots platforms, featuring
the Pioneer SDK. With an onboard computer and the laser
navigation package with ARNL software and laser rangefinder sensor,
PeopleBot can navigate autonomously and avoid obstacles with
precision. PeopleBots without a laser can navigate autonomously
and avoid obstacles less reliably, using built-in sonar. With an
onboard computer and pan/tilt/zoom camera, a PeopleBot can be used for
research topics including object and people recognition and tracking,
mapping, localization, or other robot vision tasks. (Use the included
ACTS software for a simple color tracking software solution.) The
camera may be installed on top of or underneath the top deck. When
placed underneath, the camera can view the gripper, tabletop or floor.
