Application Examples

Wireless best fit when…


Manually collected data
: Wireless can eliminate the need to
send technicians into the field to read gauges


"Must have" measurements
: Environmental or safety
regulations may require additional measurements. Wireless
allows the easy placement of instruments where needed.


Need for diagnostics
: Many plants have hundreds of field
devices. Wireless allows access to diagnostic information in
certain of these areas


Temporary Monitoring
: process may only need a short ( 1
-
3
months ) monitoring. Wireless allows easy, fast, and
inexpensive install for these requirements



Want to have
" measurements: Wireless permits adding
instruments in locations that could not previously be justified.


Long distances involved
: Wireless can eliminate the need for
long cable runs and trenching to connect tank farms and similar
assets spread over a wide area.

20



Wireless best fit when…


Many pumps and motors
: Plants often have hundreds of
pumps and motors. And while continuous condition monitoring is
noble in concept, wiring vibration sensors to all of them would
be prohibitive. Wireless allows an easy connection.


Extreme environments
: Hot, dangerous and/or hazardous
environments make it difficult to install instruments and run wire.
Wireless minimizes the problem.


Crowded environments
: Wireless eliminates the need to snake
new wires through crowded enclosures and conduit.


New wiring is too expensive
: Installed costs of $50 to $100
per foot can make adding new wired measurement points cost
-
prohibitive.


Need for feedback
: Manual valves that have no position
feedback can cause safety problems. Wirelessly monitoring can
cost as little as 10%of a wired solution.


No other way
: Wireless works for mobile assets, remote sites
and rotating equipment where using wired instruments is
impossible or impractical.

Things to take away


Cost
-
effectiveness

-

When directly compared to wired installations, wireless is a
very cost effective alternative.

Wireless modules allow seamless integration into all
applications enabling installation costs to be kept to a minimum.


Reliability

-

Radio protocols include multiple addressing levels, error checking,
handshaking and automatic re
-
try mechanisms that guard against transmission failure.
Should a communications failure occur, wireless solutions can provide multiple levels of
alarm.


Security

-

Most technology employed is state
-
of
-
art. As a result, each product has
four levels of protection.


Data is embedded in wireless transmissions using a unique modulation technique.


The data format has a unique structure with added security features, including
network and address validation.


Data is encrypted using a high
-
security encryption algorithm.


Wireless protocol operates on an exception
-
reporting basis, transmitting when there
is a change. This greatly increases the difficulty in collecting wireless samples for
decoding.


Ease of installation

-

Our modules have built
-
in diagnostics and remote
configuration abilities that are designed to save time and hassles.

Our free 24 hour
technical support provides further assistance should you require it.
