Connecting Arc Products to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
Wiring schematics and tips for connecting Arc sensors directly to programmable logic controllers.
Arc Single-Use Calibration Video
See a simple example of how ArcAir software can be used to calibrate single-use DO caps with the sensor.
Firmware Updates for Arc Products
Hamilton Arc and VisiFerm ECS sensors rely upon internal firmware for their operation. Periodic firmware updates ensure that the sensor has the latest features and fixes any pre-existing bugs that may exist.
ArcAir Software Guided Tour
ArcAir offers an overview of all the Arc sensors in your environment, through computer, tablet and your mobile phone. In this guided tour, you will learn how to use the ArcAir software to configure, calibrate and validate your sensors.
Bilinear Analog Outputs with Arc Sensors
Bilinear analog (4 to 20mA) outputs are a feature in Arc sensors but are often not well understood. This article provides a brief description of these outputs along with some examples where they can be used.
Password Management in ArcAir
A requirement of GMP Part 11 compliance is the ability to password protect ArcAir software and Arc sensors. This brief article explores common questions related to password management in these products.
ArcAir - Laboratory vs Login Startup
ArcAir software can be started up in single-user laboratory mode or with a password-protected login mode. This brief Knowledgebase article describes the advantages of each mode and provides a short video to see the differences.
Arc Sensors - Signal Averaging
Certain applications may introduce conditions that create fluctuating or "noisy" measurements. The noisy measurement can make process control challenging. One way to improve signal stability is to adjust the moving average setting using ArcAir software.
Warnings and Errors with Arc pH / ORP Sensors
The advanced diagnostics of Hamilton Arc pH / ORP sensors are indicated by warnings and errors. This article dives into the different types of warnings and errors as well as how they are defined.
