Project Description:Process Measurement Device


The project focused on the design and build of an in-line prototype device to be used by industrial facilities to monitor the quality of cooling and lubricating fluids. Several properties of the fluid are measured such as temperature and contamination levels. The resulting data is collected, analyzed, and stored. The device incorporates a human interface using a liquid crystal display with push button inputs. Data is accessible through an Ethernet port, a USB connection or a secure digital card.

Student Research...

Sault Ste Marie, Michigan

Lisa researched the use of Pointe aux Chenes beaches in St. Ignace, Mich., as an important stopover site by migratory birds. Her study determined that 34 migratory species used it as a stopover site; 50% were shorebirds and about 24% were ducks. She also found that the loggerhead shrike, an endangered species, use the beaches as a stopover site as well. Her results will help preserve Pointe aux Chenes for the millions of migratory birds.
