The topic of our June Section Meeting will be an introduction into Augmented Reality (AR) technologies available for industrial manufacturing applications.
With the arrival of 5G technology, the manufacturing and production industries face their biggest transformation yet. Safer, flexible and more efficient systems will be possible thanks to the ultra-low-latency and reliability of 5G connectivity. This presentation will describe the benefits of 5G for Industrial IoT and the impact on smart manufacturing and smart production.
Evolution of LED Lighting for Smart Facilities About our topic The Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding across all markets and industries. Companies have an almost unlimited amount of possibilities with these new capabilities. Connected lighting is one solution that can help a company take advantage of these […]
Our September 2019 Section Meeting will look at digital transformation of process control systems.
This presentation will discuss sample-handling systems primarily for continuous analyzers; however Gas Chromatographs also use this system. These continuous analyzers are used in applications such as, stack monitors to measure Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide and NOx. They are also used in other industrial applications as process control, ambient air monitors and environmental monitors.
Michelli Weighing & Measurement Thank you to Michelli Weighing & Measurement for an incredible event! Michelli welcomed the ISA New Orleans Section for its May meeting. The event included a catered lunch, presentation about Michelli’s history and services, and a tour of their state-of-the-art calibration lab. About Michelli […]
Axial and centrifugal compressor control is exceptionally challenging due to the extraordinary speed and severity of problems and the extreme
consequences in terms of plant safety and performance. The fastest and most dangerous phenomenon is surge. An axial or centrifugal compressor in surge can reverse flow in 0.03 seconds going from a large positive flow to a large negative flow. Often, the negative flow is not measurable by flow meters leaving the actual situation to your imagination.
Continuous availability and the need for always-on applications have always been critical requirements in the industrial control environment. Virtualization can help you realize increased up-time and quicker disaster recovery from hardware failures, therefore keeping your process running.
ISA – TR101.02 is in its 9th revision as a working draft and is soon to be released pending a successful vote. This presentation will give you a “behind the scenes” peek at the current draft. ISA standards define the “what” and Technical Reports provide guidance on the “how”.
