Low power consumption enables battery powered sensors

The use of battery powered sensors is growing within the manufacturing and technology industry as they can avoid the regulatory and high costs associated with hardwired devices. Through careful power management these sensors can run for many years run on a single battery or charge. When integrated with wireless communications networks this is a great way for large plant companies to build big data infrastructures. Advantages to using wireless battery … Read more

Why Use Remote Monitoring and Control Solutions?

Remote sensor systems are designed to monitor and control a variety of large facilities, such as power plants, factories, airports and more. These systems can with some degree automate activities that go on in these facilities. They receive data from sensors and user-inputs to help with efficiency and automation, either directly controlling a process or providing meaningful information to the operator. Plexus Controls offer a range of battery operated sensors, … Read more

BATTERY OPERATED WIRELESS SENSOR POWER

BATTERY OPERATED SENSOR POWER Developing battery operated wireless interfaces to manage and read a sensor seems straightforward but to optimize the design can be tricky. The problem is that if we are designing a true wireless sensor system then the remote termination unit (RTU) will provide sensor power from the RTU batteries, and managing the sensor power to ensure a long life from the batteries depends on a number of … Read more
