Challenges

  • No online monitoring of temperature or pressure measurements
  • Lack of precision measurements, currently only using local gauges
  • Reading errors induced by human error, leading to lower product quality

 

Solution

For rotating equipment;
Eliminating the wire by ISA100 wireless transmitter is the perfect solution.
Battery operated transmitters are installed directly on the rotating dryer and the wireless gate-way is located approx.50m away on a support. Even though the dryer is rotating, reliable communication is established between the transmitters and the gateway.
ISA100 wireless system ensures accurate remote measurements throughout the entire process.

Reliable –Continuous signal availability
Accurate –Dependable sensors for measurement
Simple –Seamless integration with existing host system

The ISA100 wireless system

Conclusion

Eliminating cables, complex connectors and slide rings on rotating equipment have greatly simplified the whole installation and process. The ISA100 wireless transmitter and the gateway have fulfilled this mission and have delivered real productive gains for the user. Ongoing maintenance costs have been significantly reduced by the wireless architecture.
