Offering up to 120Hz native frame rate of active stereo projection for advanced 3D performance with reduced overall operational costs, the Christie HoloStation delivers, high-resolution, high-performance 3D visualisation with low maintenance and low cost of ownership.

Amongst the range of products leading international process automation specialist Endress+Hauser will have on display at AOG 2016 will be the company’s SpectraSensors TDL technology.

The SpectraSensors analysers utilise a laser absorption spectroscopy technique to detect and measure the concentration of analyte molecules (H2O, H2S, CO2, NH3, and C2H2) in process gas streams.

Recent advances in semiconductor lasers have made the development of tunable diode laser analysers for process gas monitoring applications technologically and economically viable, the company said.
