Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring Industrial machines can now benefit from low cost vibration monitoring to provide an early warning that a machine needs attention. A sensing element, known as an accelerometer or displacement sensor is mounted on the machine and provides a response in a particular axis that can be measured. Early vibration monitoring sensors were single axis units, however the latest units are now 3-axis (x, y and z) and are … 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

Well Depth Measurement and Management

Well depth measurement and depth measurement in a tank can be a tough task if the liquid you are measuring is volatile or foaming.  Traditional methods of depth measurement using a drop down electrical tape that indicates when the surface is reached is suitable for a few applications but doesn’t work with containers that have gaseous or foaming liquids, and if a pressure sensor is used the project costs can … Read more
