New Sensor Research Findings from University of Kent Discussed

July 1, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- A new study on Sensor Research is now available. According to news reporting originating from Kent, United Kingdom, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "A capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection ((CD)-D-4) sensor suitable for conductivity detection of electrolyte solution in industrial fields is developed. Series resonance principle is adopted to remove the influence of coupling capacitances and hence to implement the conductivity detection in large pipelines."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the University of Kent, "A special shield configuration is designed to eliminate the influence of the stray capacitance, to overcome the negative influence of the interference in industrial fields and to be suitable for the metal connection in industrial fields. Conductivity detection experiments were carried out on four different sized pipes with inner diameters of 1.8 mm, 3.3 mm, 5.0 mm and 7.6 mm, respectively. The experiment results show that the (CD)-D-4 sensor for industrial application is successful and the accuracy of conductivity detection is satisfactory."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Discussions concerning the advantages and disadvantages of the (CD)-D-4 sensor are presented."
