Customer needed efficiency improvement of steel manufacturing by temperature monitoring for heat/cooling equipment. Previous system required periodic compensation lead changing.
Improved product quality by accuracy enhancement of measurement. Reduced compensation lead changing work.
- High temperature
- Strong electrical noise
Wireless multi channel temperature transmitters were introduced. Yokogawa plant-wide field wireless system was selected for its high reliable communication and flexibility.
YFGW410 x 2
YFGW510 x 3
YTMX580 x 20
High gain antenna (6 dBi)
Remote antenna cable (3 meters)
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.
In the iron and steel industry, it is crucial to improve the quality of not only products but also manufacturing and operation technologies, as well as to address environmental and energy-efficiency issues. Yokogawa helps customers to create the ideal plant and evolves with them for mutual growth.
YFGW410 Field Wireless Management Station has system manager/security manager/gateway function based on ISA100.11a, and combining this with Field Wireless Access Point(YFGW510) and/or Field Wireless Media Converter(YFGW610) composes the field wireless system.
YFGW510 Field Wireless Access Poin has backbone router function based on ISA, and combining this with Field Wireless Management Station (YFGW410) and/or Field Wireless Media Converter (YFGW610) composes the field wireless system.
YFGW520 Field Wireless Access Poin has backbone router function based on ISA, and combining this with Field Wireless Management Station (YFGW410) and/or Field Wireless Media Converter (YFGW610) composes the field wireless system.
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.
The flexibility of wireless solutions enables less investment in infrastructure while providing greater insights into plant operations.
