Pressure Sensor & Monitoring
A small example of pressure and its resulting action is whistling of cooker in our kitchens. Whenever there is excess pressure inside the cooker, it blows the whistle to release inside excess pressure to save it from bursting. Second example of pressure is water flow pressure in our bath room taps. Low pressure means less water in the tank and high pressure means sufficient pressure in the tank. So pressure is a parameter that has good as well as bad affects and it has to be maintain within certain specified limits for smooth working of equipments and machines.
Pressure of a water pipe line can be checked by installing pressure sensors or transducers on the line. This pressure sensor measures the force/pressure being exerted on its diaphragm and converts that pressure/force into signals. These signals are now sent to recording devices, called pressure data loggers. A pressure sensor can be used to measure the pressure of water or liquid flow in a pipe line, pressure inside a vessel, level of liquid inside a tank. Pressure sensors are also used for measurement of loads weights. In hydraulic machines the pressure sensor are used to measure and control the pressure of oil in the system. Similarly pneumatic machines use pressure sensors to measure the pressure of air in the system.
The pressure measured using the pressure sensor can be displayed locally on the pressure sensor or in a control room by laying wires from pressure sensor to control room. Softbitonline has developed gsm/gprs wireless data loggers & RTUs for displaying data in remote central control room. You can connected pressure sensor with the wireless RTU and it will transmit the pressure signals through inbuilt modem to central server. Buy now...
