GEMS SENSORS & CONTROLS
BL Series Latching Valve
The BL series latching valve allows the user to pulse the valve and have it change state. The voltage does not need to be constantly applied in order to hold it in a state. These valves are ideal for controlling larger pneumatic valves in remote applications where power is limited or when the temperature of the media cannot be impacted as it flows through the valve. The larger pneumatic valves can close and open large pipes and these latching valves control them. The term Latch refers to the valve in the open state where supply pressure goes to the external valve. The unlatched state is when the supply is cut off and the external valve is exhausted to ambient. Applications include natural gas plunger lifts, natural gas separators, gas chromatography, and irrigation systems. For more information, visit www.gemssensors.com.

Helwig Bearing Protector Shaft Grounding System
Helwig Carbon launches a new line of shaft grounding systems to protect motors from bearing failure, a major cause of motor downtime. The stock kits fit most motors and various shaft sizes. They are easy to install, maintain, and work effectively in contaminated environments. Helwig’s grounding assemblies divert static and induced electrical currents in the motor shafts away from the bearings, protecting them from pitting and potential damage.
Several methods are available to reduce or eliminate the path the induced electrical currents can travel. Among these Helwig’s Bearing Protector is the best choice. The Helwig Bearing Protector will give years of service while maintaining low shaft potential, minimizing your chance of having stray currents pass through the bearings. The Bearing Protector is a cost effective way to keep shaft voltage to a minimum.

[h3]Dual Channel Universal Transmitters[/h3]
Wastewater treatment technicians who need to measure turbidity and dissolved oxygen (DO) or pH levels in secondary clarifiers will find the dual channel T80 Universal Transmitter and Triton TR6 Turbidity Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices, Inc. (ECD) can be easily combined with the S80 Intelligent Sensors to measure DO, pH or five other common liquid parameters. The dual channel T80 Transmitter features self-configuring electronics, which provide a fast, easy plug-and-play monitoring solution for waste water treatment. The T80 Universal Transmitter eliminates the need to buy multiple transmitters to monitor turbidity, DO, pH, ORP, pION, conductivity or resistivity. The Triton TR6 Sensor measures suspended solids or turbidity in four selectable dual ranges featuring pre-set low and high ranges from 0 to 4000 NTU. Its sophisticated optical IR sensor emits a beam of 850 nm (near infrared light) into a water sample where it is scattered by particles suspended in the water. The amount of light reflected back to the sensor by the particles is correlated to the turbidity or suspended solids present.
