One company has decided to install Siemens motion sensors on its cement filter collectors as a method of monitoring the operation of the screw conveyor. <br/><br/>A leading cement producer in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the firm employed the Milltronics MFA 4p motion sensor, a highly-sensitive single set point system which is used with remote sensing probes. <br/><br/>One unusual feature of the sensor is its adjustable zero to 60-second time delay, which allows the monitored device - in this case the screw conveyor - to accelerate to normal running speed before monitoring begins.<br/><br/>The single set point system is said to be very appropriate for cement industry applications as it can be easily retrofitted to existing equipment using Form C contacts from one or both of the relays. <br/><br/>In related news, it was reported earlier this year that Austriamicrosystems and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits are collaborating to develop new magnetic motion-sensing integrated circuits. <br/><br/>!http://feeds.directnews.co.uk/feedtrack/justcopyright.gif?feedid=1785&itemid=19383085|alt=ADNFCR-1785-ID-19383085-ADNFCR|src=http://feeds.directnews.co.uk/feedtrack/justcopyright.gif?feedid=1785&itemid=19383085!
