Requirements

ISA 100 WirelessCustomer needed efficiency improvement of steel manufacturing by temperature monitoring for heat/cooling equipment. Previous system required periodic compensation lead changing.

Temperature Monitoring for Water Jacket

Benefits

Improved product quality by accuracy enhancement of measurement. Reduced compensation lead changing work.

Challenge

Severe environment.

  • High temperature
  • Strong electrical noise

Solution

Wireless multi channel temperature transmitters were introduced. Yokogawa plant-wide field wireless system was selected for its high reliable communication and flexibility.

Equipment List

YFGW410 x 2
YFGW510 x 3
YTMX580 x 20
High gain antenna (6 dBi)
Remote antenna cable (3 meters)

Conclusion

YTMX580 Multi-Input Temperature Transmitter
YTMX580 Multi-Input
Temperature Transmitter

Product quality was improved by accuracy enhancement of temperature measurement.

Wireless temperature measurement equipment is less affected by electric noise compared to wired equipment using long compensation lead.

Maintenance time and cost for compensation lead changing work was drastically reduced.

YTMX580 eight channel temperature transmitter enabled cost effective system configuration.
