Best Practices for Designing an HMI

When designing the software for our newest accessory, the multi channel operator interface, John, the Manager of our Engineering Department took a few best practices into consideration:

Dynamic Duo: LFL + HMI

To continue our discussion on the benefits of having an accessory in place to digitally communicate with your LFL system let's welcome a guest blogger, Debra Hall, our Director of Sales:     

Digitally Communicate with your LFL System

In today's world communication is always at the touch of a button. It's important that the same can be said for the safety system in your facility. One of the great new features of our newest accessory, the multi-channel operator interface, is the enhancement in digital communication.

Introducing... Our Newest Accessory

Multi Channel Operator Interface

We are excited to introduce the newest member of the Control Instruments family of products... our Multi Channel Operator Interface. Not only does this accessory feature the latest in digital communication but it will also help to keep your analyzer platforms up-to-date.

Some additional functions include: 

A Service Perspective on Upgrades

For the past month we’ve been talking all about upgrading an LFL System. We’ve touched upon the life expectancy of an older system, using the most up-to-date advancements in both software and hardware platforms, operating under the safest conditions possible and even addressed common problems that plague an older system in harsh industrial environments. 

Does your High Temperature Process Need an LFL Upgrade?

Due to the nature of high temperature processes, those operating above 200°C, some older model LFL Systems have a life expectancy of 10-15 years. In critical applications like these, it is essential to ensure that the LFL System is up to date and fully operational, if not, it might be time for an upgrade.

There are 2 common areas of the LFL System that are often affected by the inherent demands of running a process at high temperatures:

Can an upgrade improve your safety AND productivity?

Safety directives from various agencies have changed over the years to reflect the many scientific advances we have made as a society for our workforce, the environment, and a company’s facility. That’s why its essential to make sure that your current LFL system is operating up to code and under the safest conditions possible.

A Technically Fit Upgrade

Last week we discussed the age of an LFL system, now let’s focus our upgrade discussion on another important issue that effects the efficiency and productivity of your system. 

Speed and Safety: An Unlikely Duo

Speed and safety are an unlikely pair in everyday life but in the manufacturing industry they often go hand-in-hand. Specifically, the speed of response when measuring hazardous gases and vapors.

Workplace Safety - It's Not A Game

Safety. I know it seems like we are always talking about it. Everything we write or reference mentions it. In fact our company was founded all those years ago because of it. We care that much about it. Keeping your personnel and facility SAFE is our #1 goal. Productivity, sustainability, energy savings, it all ultimately begins & ends with your application being safe.
