Monitoring Rotating Equipment
Taking measurements on rotating equipment, such as a kiln or rotary table, usually requires a complex and expensive system of cabling. Even taking precautions and using specialized equipment doesn’t eliminate cable tangles and breaks.
The SureCross Wireless Network eliminates complexities associated with data acquisition from rotating and moving machinery such as a rotating kiln. Crucial temperature data is acquired using a thermocouple and transmitted from the FlexPowered SureCross Nodes to a remote Gateway in the plant’s control center.
Excessive heat triggers an alarm. Data is always concentrated in the same location for processing or analysis, and physical risks to personnel are eliminated.
Create point-to-multi point networks that distribute I/O over large areas. Input and output types include discrete (dry contact, PNP/NPN), analog (0 to 10 V dc, 0 to 20 mA), temperature (thermocouple and RTD), and pulse counter.
