Coal Bunker Temperature Monitoring

Application

Coal Bunker Temperature Monitoring

  • Temperature monitoring is required to prevent wind-fueled fire hazards.
  • The measuring points are up to 600 meters away from the control room.

Challenge

  • The temperature sensor measuring points change each time, because the shape of the coal mountain at the bunker varies with the amount of stock at any given time.

Solutions

  • Wireless system for flexible temperature measurement
    Survey system, gateway x1; transmitter (YTA) x3; repeater (YTA) x1
  • Verified communication of up to 600 meters without a repeater
  • Packet error rates of less than 2%

Benefits

  • Longer range communication
  • Less hardware
  • Robust communication with lower packet error rates

YTA510 Wireless Temperature Transmitter

The high performance temperature transmitter YTA510 accepts Thermocouple, RTD, ohms or DC mill volt inputs. The transmitters transmit not only process variables but also the setting parameters using wireless signal. The transmitters run on internal batteries, and the installation cost can be decreased since hard-wiring is not required. The communication is based on ISA100.11a protocol specifications. 

YTMX580 Multi-Input Temperature Transmitter

YTMX580 can accept inputs from up to 8 points of measurement such as thermocouples (8 types: K, E, J, etc.) or RTD signals (3 types: Pt100, etc.), converting the corresponding measurement input values to a wireless signal. It can also accept DC voltage, resistance, and 4 to 20 mA DC signal input.
