Vegadif 85 is a universal, differential pressure transmitter for measuring liquids, gases and vapors that comes standard with an additional absolute pressure sensor on the low pressure side, providing the option to measure differential and static pressure simultaneously with one device. Having both available as digital or 4-20mA outputs provides more information for all applications. Designed with functional safety in mind, Vegadif 85′s electronics inside are intrinsically safe and flameproof. It was developed according to IEC 61508 for SIL2, and can be homogeneously redundant for SIL3 applications. It also has an option for Bluetooth communication and display capabilities. Vegadif 85′s compact design uses less oil behind the diaphragms, giving operators a faster reaction time and a measurement accuracy of 0.065% at full scale. It can be configured to meet application needs with multiple measuring ranges from 0.15 psi up to 240 psi. It can also be assembled in different configurations for easier mounting, and has optional brackets and valve manifolds. Micropilot FMR5X free-space radar and FMP5X Levelflex guided radar level transmitters have added Heartbeat onboard di...

Jony Ive needs to redesign these non-Apple products

When Apple announced on Thursday that Jony Ive was leaving the company, I immediately thought back to when David Letterman retired from his Late Show in May 2015. After walking away to spend more time with his family, Letterman launched another talk show three and a half years later called My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman. It premiered on Netflix with a vastly different format and allowed us to see Letterman and his talent in a completely different light. While I don’t think Ive will grow a giant prospector beard like Letterman did (though how awesome would that be), I am excited to see how he’ll apply his talent to a slew of new products and designs outside of the Apple-sphere. Ive and fellow designer Marc Newsom, who in 2013 designed high-end one-of-a-kind products for charity including an aluminum Leica camera, are forming their own design firm called LoveFrom. According to Ive, the company gets its name from an address Steve Jobs gave at an employee meeting. Though Apple will be a client of LoveFrom, Ive will work independently from the tech giant possibly as early as 2020. The number of iconic Apple products he designed already made him a...
