his year Paul Daniel gave presentations on sensor placement at PDA and Interphex. Here is a recorded version of that webinar: "Modern Rules for an Old Practice."

Plus, below is a new white paper that gives in-depth information on placing your sensors in validation/mapping applications. In this paper, Paul Daniel describes five key considerations for determining sensor placement in your mapping studies with illustrations and examples.

While every combination of environment and product specifications is unique, these rules are applicable to almost every situation. Paul has created an heuristic to guide sensor placement in validation studies:


Rule 1: Map the extremes.
Rule 2: Map in three dimensions.
Rule 3: For large spaces, map storage only.
Rule 4: Identify and address variables.
Rule 5: If it’s worth mapping, it’s worth monitoring.
