New Version of AccuTru's Self-Validating (SEVA) Temperature Measurement System Under Development

KINGWOOD, TEXAS USA - March 15, 2008  AccuTru Sensor Technologies announced to day, a new version of its Self-Validating (SEVA) temperature measuremnt system is now under development with an expected release in the second quarter fo 2009.   The patented self-validating temperature measurement system is the only system that provides operators or DCS systems with a continuous stream of digital data that validates the accuracy of the temperature measurement output that the sensor provides.
 
The syst em relies on a matrix of measurement elements that provide multiple mutually exclusive measurements using various methodologies.  The microprocessor controlled system senses changes in the sensor and will adjust  the signal output to compensate for drift that may occur in the sensor's elements. 
 
Dr. Daniel A. Barberree, Accu Tru's President stated that the new 3.0 version will have multiple enhancements.  For the first time, the system will be enclosed in a standard explosion proof housing.  Further, the new version allows the customer to select from several different types of output, including HART.  Barberree stated that with the new design, the pricing structure will now be competitive with upper tier transmitters currently on the market but offers significant competitive advantages over standard temperature transmitters.

AccuTru’s Self-Validating/Diagnostic Sensor Out Performs Type R & B Thermocouples in Year Long Comparison Test

KINGWOOD, TEXAS USA – February 20, 2003 - A major US based manufacturing company conducted a year long test of the performance of AccuTru’s Self-Validating/Diagnostic sensor (SVS/3211) versus Type R & B thermocouples, in a high temperature combustion/melter environment. Data was collected and analyzed in 2-hour intervals, 2-week intervals and at 12-months of service.
 
The results showed that “... over a longer time interval the AccuTru is showing true differences from the mean more distinctly.” In addition, the data shows “During the periods examined the AccuTru reading shifted up, while the Type R and Type B thermocouples shifted down. Optic temperatures taken at the time indicate an increase in temperature ... the AccuTru sensor was the only one to record this change. The operating parameters of the furnace had been changed so that the furnace was “operating at a higher temperature.”
 
The conclusions of the test data shows “The AccuTru (SVS 3211) is superior to both the R and B type thermocouples.” A detailed summary of the results is available on request by contacting us at team1@accutru.com
