Portable mold data system adds quick disconnects.

A new portable data-acquisition system and a new quick-connect/disconnect feature for cavity sensors are available from Priamus System Technologies, LLC, Brunswick, Ohio. Its new Priamus Monitor system, housed in a protective case, comes with eight to 16 channels that the user can configure to measure cavity pressure, cavity temperature, and machine or voltage signals. The system also includes the eDAQ process-monitoring software, which provides a number of real-time control functions that can be used to control valves or initiate switchover to holding pressure. New high-speed Ethernet capability transmits data to a PC or laptop for display using a standard Ethernet cable.

Priamus also introduced new line of quick-connect/ disconnect cavity-pressure and temperature sensors (pictured) that are installed in the cavity insert of a mold. Typically, the sensors are installed in the mold platen itself. In the new design, the mold inserts can be mounted and dismounted with a simple plug connection while the sensors remain in the mold insert. The sensors stay safely packed in the mold insert, even after dismounting. Also, this allows mold inserts with different sensor positions to be used without changing positions of the quick connects.
