08/08/2013: Monitoring of Temperature and Humidity in the Workplace

Here at Lascar’s Whiteparish headquarters, we've been experiencing that rarest of things; a warm British summer. Temperatures topped 30°C on a number of days in July and towards the end of the heat wave it was clear that many of the team were happy to see the temperatures drop towards the mid to low-twenties.

Discussions about the heat primarily focused on the high-temperatures, however it wasn’t until the second and third week of the high-pressure system that the heat started to become...

18/07/2013: PanelPilot: A Design Case Study

The PanelPilot concept wasn'€™t really one of those light-bulb moments in a new product development meeting, but rather an idea that just gradually gathered more and more momentum. In a mature and competitive market like ours, you'€™re always looking for the next big thing. For us, we knew that use of the traditional panel meter, our bread and butter for thirty years, was on the decline and that the graphics market - particularly touch-screen devices - were the new interface between humans...

15/07/2013: Dual-Thermocouple Data Logging for Domestic Hot-Water System

As part of the normal service or repair call performed by heating engineers, a reading of the temperature of the cold water feed and hot water return from domestic combination boilers is performed. This is a measure of the boiler efficiency and its capability to provide a continuous flow of hot water to the household. The test is performed by attaching a thermocouple to each pipe.

Often this instantaneous test is sufficient to prove that the boiler is in good order, but it is only valid for...

01/07/2013: Temperature Monitoring of a Medical Fridge

Monitoring and recording the temperature of a vaccine or samples fridge in a pharmacy, veterinary practice or hospital has gone from being best practice a few years ago to a regulatory requirement now.

This application has been driven over the past few years by legislation requiring pharmacies and hospitals to prove that medicines or samples have been kept at between 2°C and 8°C during their time spent in an environment. Whilst a thermometer placed inside the fridge, and a daily check of...
