The Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) will be giving full support to the Sensors + Systems Show for Control & Instrumentation, which this year is being held on 24–25 October 2012 in the impressive new Silverstone Wing pit and paddock complex (Hall 1) at Silverstone Circuit, the home of the British F1 Race.
A worldwide association, the MIA now provides a network that reaches into every corner of the motorsport business community. The community of MIA members spans the whole spectrum of international motorsport business, from the largest companies to the smallest private firms.
The show is already receiving strong support from exhibitors, well-known publications and distinguished engineering institutions, including The Profibus Group, the Institute of Measurement & Control, magazines Industrial Technology, Industrial Plant & Equipment and the new Controls, Drives & Automation publication, DP&A, and IEN together with the website Sensorland.com.
This year’s show should provide a great opportunity to display and discuss products, services and other material to engineers from such industries as the automotive, aerospace, rail, power generation, process industries, medical, motorsport, and R&D. Both Bartec and Impress Sensors & Systems will be using the show to promote their products.
Bartec will be showing their ANTARESplus, a remote I/O System for potentially explosive areas which can be connected to any current control with various bus systems (PROFIBUS-DP, Profi Net, Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP). There are nine different I/O modules available in the form of digital and analog inputs and outputs.
From Impress Sensors & Systems will be a range of submersible gauging level transmitters which are suitable for small tanks and containers. Manufactured in the UK, the new IMTG range of transmitters is designed for continuous submersion in liquids such as water, oils and fuels. The transmitters are suited to applications in small (0–10m depth) tanks or containers, where conventional mechanical level switches and sensors are not suitable because of reliability issues and a higher degree of level ‘control’ and measurement is required.
The exhibition will again feature free workshops hosted by a number of companies. Full details will be announced at a later date and will be available on the show website.
The Sensors + Systems Show for Control & Instrumentation is free to enter and includes free parking and a catalogue. Visitor pre-registration will go live from July, but for full details of the show visit www.sensorsandsystems.co.uk.
