Cruise passengers stay cool with HVAC control systems

Cruise passengers stay cool with HVAC control systems
Modern cruise ships are promoted as the epitome of comfort and luxury; hence, allowing passengers to adjust cabin temperatures to their liking is an essential part of the experience. With such a large number of rooms the HVAC control systems need to balance easy, responsive individual adjustment for hundreds of cabins with the main ship’s systems - in order to ensure an efficient, reliable and accurate service is maintained.

Fuel cells - controlling the energy of the future

Fuel cells - controlling the energy of the future
Fuel cells have been hailed as the energy source of the future; they can provide a non-polluting supply of power by re-combining hydrogen and oxygen to create electricity and water. The chemistry sounds very simple, however creating a reliable, efficient and safe energy source requires considerable expertise, especially in the control of the fluids and gases that are involved in this exciting technology. Tony Brennan, Field Segment Manager, at Bürkert, looks at the process in more detail, what is needed to develop the technology and make it more widely available.

Climate control maintenance is the key to efficiency

Climate control maintenance is the key to efficiency
£480,000 is a lot of money. But that is what I was told it costs one of the UK’s largest automotive manufacturers per hour when they experience downtime on their paint plant. Your overheads may not be as substantial as the above example, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the old adage you hear in every corner of business and production is true. By Karl Lycett, Rittal’s Product Manager for Climate Control

Motion control looks like it's here to stay

Motion control looks like it's here to stay
Industrial control is a highly developed field that advances year on year as the underlying technology advances. But will it and all its specialist sub-sets continue to thrive? Gerard Bush, a motion specialist with INMOCO, here gives us his opinion on the matter. All technologies develop over time, with most eventually reaching an upper limit where they are as advanced as they can be. This is clearly evident in older technologies where the peak has been reached.
