July 2016

The Elliot Scientific July 2016 Newsletter: In this issue we announce Elliot Scientific's new ISO9001:2015 certification and Lake Shore's latest brochure covering their product ranges, explain how Andeen-Hagerling measure more than most using nano Siemens and why Tristan Technologies can sense femto Teslas, then describe how to manage remote temperature measurements with the popular Neoptix OmniFlex 2 system.

Elliot Scientific achieves latest ISO 9001:2015 certification

New 2015 standard explained in video

Every year Elliot Scientific is assessed for ISO 9001 compliance. The company's methods and procedures are measured against a set of international quality management standards designed to ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services.

Last September, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) ratified an update to the criteria of the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system and issued the new 2015 standard (video explanation here).

At the end of May, external auditors judged Elliot Scientific's existing quality management framework complied with ISO 9001:2015 without any need for change... a fitting testament to the company's ethos of understanding the need for continual improvement in services and traceability, and demonstrating our commitment to ensuring that our standards are always the highest in our industry.

A versatile gauge against which others can be measured - Capacitance

Andeen-Hagerling have manufactured capacitance and capacitance/loss bridge test equipment for use in the lab and field for over thirty years. Their products can measure pressure, cryogenic temperatures, or fluid levels, and are also used in material characterisation and displacement/strain testing. The company offers a range of instrumentation that includes:

Capacitance and Loss Meters: The Andeen-Hagerling AH 2550A series measures capacitance and loss in medium and high impedance ranges.

Capacitance Standards: The Andeen-Hagerling AH 1100 capacitance standard frame contains up to four AH 11A fused-silica capacitance standards, and provides reference capacitors of unexcelled stability.

Multi-frequency Capacitance/Loss Bridges: The AH 2700 series offers unparalleled stability, resolution, linearity and accuracy in a multi-frequency capacitance/loss bridge.

For in-depth information about these products and their applications, contact us now.

Best seller from Neoptix: OmniFlex 2

The OmniFlex™ 2 System, a multi-channel temperature monitor field upgradeable to as many as 104 channels, has proved to be a best seller here for Neoptix in the past few months since it was added to their fibre optic temperature measurement range.

The OmniFlex 2 System allows use of several types of plug-in OmniModules in the same chassis. These modules can easily be mixed and matched to meet the needs of specific test projects. Current OmniModules are:

  • 4-channel direct measurement module operating at 10 Hz/channel
  • 4-channel multiplexed module operating at 250 ms/channel
  • 8-channel multiplexed module operating at 250 ms/channel
  • 16-channel 0-10 V analogue output module

The basic OmniFlex 2 chassis is a standard 3U in height that can accomodate up to 6 OmniModules, while a 6U version can be fitted with a total of 13. Additional chassis can be cascaded by linking them via a router.

The unit can be controlled by its onboard colour touchscreen, or remotely using a web browser via Ethernet. The latter method is more comprehensive, as it enables remote module configuration, data-logging capabilities, full electrical isolation, and optional WiFi connectivity.
