Panasonic, Seiko launch hazardous substance monitor

Nov. 9, 2004 – A Seiko Instruments Inc. unit specializing in tools for nanoscale science and technology has teamed up with a Matsushita Electric Works affiliate to develop a system to automatically measure hazardous substances in production plants, according to the Japan Corporate News Network.

Matsushita’s Panasonic AVC Networks plans a December rollout of the system, which uses a fluorescent X-ray method to measure substances at high speeds and at high levels of precision. Seiko’s SII NanoTechnology Inc. also intends to ship the systems next month, incorporating them into its Hazardous Substance Monitor SEA 1000A and 2200 series, the report said.
