Virtual reality platform Comos Walkinside now available for web browsers and mobile devices

Siemens and PureWeb announced the integration of the PureWeb Platform with Siemens' Comos Walkinside Viewer. Comos Walkinside is a virtual reality platform with powerful 3D visualization designed to allow plant engineers and operating personnel to move virtually inside and outside of a plant for operating, training and simulation purposes. The PureWeb Platform provides comprehensive tools for remotely accessing, delivering and interacting with 2D/3D models in real time. This enables Comos Walkinside viewers to realistically depict highly complex plant models in several dimensions using any web browser or mobile device.

Cost-effective, compact level transmitter with intelligent processing for improved accuracy

• Increased asset utilization and decreased operational waste
• Hart 7 communications
• Wide range of applications in environmental, chemical, and food and beverage industries
• Improved accuracy and repeatability

Siemens presents Sitrans Probe LU240, its newest ultrasonic level measurement Hart transmitter, a hardworking and rugged device that provides reliable level, volume, and ?ow measurements. Engineered for the challenges of the environmental industry, this transmitter is also suited for the chemical and food and beverage applications. Field-proven Process Intelligence echo processing separates true material level echoes from false, providing reliable readings while still allowing rapid response to actual changes in the material level. The device's reduced blanking distance decreases waste in applications while boosting asset utilization by providing continuously accurate readings even with high levels of material.
