Temperature Monitoring Using Multipoint Wireless Transmitter

Application

Temperature monitoring using multipoint wireless transmitter

Challenge

  • Wiring the hundreds of meters from the coal stack to the coal conveyor control room is very expensive.
  • The placement of thermocouples changes with differing amounts of coal, but there are limits to the range within which you can place the thermocouples.

Solutions

Employ the ISA100.11a-compliant YTMX580 Multipoint Wireless Transmitter. The YTMX580 has 8 channels of universal input, which is perfect for multipoint measurement applications, and it can withstand harsh operating temperatures of -40 to 85 °C.

  • Multipoint temperature transmitter: YTMX580
    Connect multiple thermocouples (up to 8 inputs) for measuring temperature.
  • Temperature transmitter: YTA510
    For wireless relaying.
  • Wireless gateway: YFGW710
  • Data acquisition: MW100

Benefits

  • Embedding thermocouples in the coal stack enables multipoint observations in the depths of the stack.
  • Wireless transmitters provide a high degree of freedom in the installation locations of the thermocouples, and eliminate the need for cables.
  • Wireless solution means no rewiring damaged cables.
  • Decreases wiring costs.

For industrial DAQ applications, the MW100 offers scalability and can operate either standalone or integrated as a node within a larger automated system including SCADA or DCS.

YFGW710 Field Wireless Integrated Gateway

YFGW710 Field Wireless Integrated Gateway comply to the wireless communications standard ISA100.11a for industrial automation of International Society of Automation (ISA), and relays ISA100 Device data to the system via integrated backbone router. Single unit of YFGW710 has integrated functions of backbone router, system manager, security manage, and gateway.

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.
