These new controllers offer the highest accuracy available on the market and ensure consistently precise measurements. The compact, single point ultrasonic controllers continuously monitor and control level in liquids, solids, or slurry applications for a wide range of industries.
The controllers are available in three models: the Sitrans LUT420 Level Controller, Sitrans LUT430 Level, Pump, and Flow Controller, and Sitrans LUT440 High Accuracy Open Channel Monitor (which also provides a full suite of advanced level, volume, and pump controls). The series is suitable for an array of applications, including those in water/wastewater treatment facilities, manufacturing processes, and industrial storage.
With these new controllers, operators can be confident of level or flow measurements thanks to Sitrans LUT400's patented filters and algorithms. The high accuracy of these new controllers results in cost-effective operations: inventory monitoring is always precise, processes are better controlled, and expensive spill cleanups can be avoided. With energy cost reduction strategies growing in importance, the Sitrans LUT400 controllers assist water/wastewater facilities in reducing their overall energy expenses with a real-time clock and energy saving algorithms for reducing pump operations during peak energy periods.
The Sitrans LUT400 series controllers feature an intuitive user interface. The controllers can be programmed in less than one minute using the graphical Quick Start Wizards. The backlit display is easy to read in all lighting conditions. Sonic Intelligence, Siemens echo processing technology for ultrasonic level instruments, continuously evaluates and adjusts for noise level and changing process conditions. All three models are compatible with the full line of Echomax ultrasonic transducers from Siemens. The Sitrans LUT400's datalogging capabilities allow users to store and review datalogs or transfer them to a computer. In addition to local programming, the controllers also support remote configuration and diagnostics with Siemens Simatic PDM (Process Device Manager), Emerson AMS, FC375/475, or FDTs (such as PACTware) using Siemens DTM.

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.
The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
Transistors based on carbon nanostructures: what sounds like a futuristic dream could be reality in just a few years' time. An international research team working with Empa has now succeeded in producing nanotransistors from graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, as reported in the current issue of the trade journal "Nature Communications."
Graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, so-called graphene nanoribbons, have special electrical properties that make them promising candidates for the...
