  • Patent number: 10015899
    Abstract: A process variable transmitter for use in an industrial process includes a housing having a cavity formed therein. The housing has a barrier which divides the cavity into first and second cavities. Preferably, measurement circuitry in the first cavity is configured to measure a process variable of the industrial process. A terminal block assembly is positioned in the second cavity. The terminal block assembly forms a seal with the housing thereby forming a third cavity between the barrier and a circuit board of the terminal block assembly.

  • Publication number: 20170093533
    Abstract: A two-wire process variable transmitter for use in an industrial process includes a process variable sensor configured to sense a process variable of a process fluid of the industrial process. Output circuitry provides an output on a two-wire process control loop which is related to the sensed process variable. Terminal voltage measurement circuitry measures a voltage at terminals of the process variable transmitter. The terminal voltage is a voltage measured across an electrical connection of the two-wire process variable transmitter to the two-wire process control loop. A microprocessor performs loop diagnostics on the two-wire process control loop based upon a loop current and the measured terminal voltage. The microprocessor determines coefficients of a polynomial equation which relates loop current and terminal voltage during normal operation of the two-wire process variable transmitter and performs subsequent diagnostics based upon the coefficients of the polynomial.

  • Patent number: 9446448
    Abstract: Recoaters for powder-layer three-dimensional printers which are capable of producing enhanced powder layer uniformity and powder-layer three-dimensional printers having such recoaters are described. The recoater comprises a bridge, two supports, one at either end of the bridge, a powder reservoir, and a substantially rectangular plate which extends between the two supports and contains an opening through which the powder reservoir either extends into or through or through which build powder can be fed into the powder reservoir. The plate has a length to minimum width ratio of no more than about 7.0 and a length to maximum width ratio of no more than about 5.0, the plate being adapted to brace the bridge into a perpendicular relationship with the first and second supports when the recoater is being controllably moved and the powder reservoir is dispensing powder to form a powder layer.
