Industrial exhibition

Gencoa will display products at the accompanying exhibition being held on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th September.

Situated alongside local agents Beamtec on stand 41, the exhibit will include a live demo of Optix and Speedflo, with a demonstration to show feedback control of oxygen partial pressure using the Optix sensor and Speedflo feedback controller. There will also be a demonstration of alcohol detection using Optix to identify drinks based on alcoholic content.
