DATAPAQ is offering a radio telemetry system that provides live temperature data transmission from inside industrial heating processes. Designed for use with the Datapaq Q18 line of data loggers, the system is comprised of transmitters for installation inside the data logger, primary and secondary receivers, and Datapaq Insight analysis software.
While the data logger collects temperature data inside the heating (or cooling) process, the radio telemetry system allows instant analysis and adjustment of process parameters, if necessary.
Q18 data loggers measure temperatures from -392°F to +2,498°F (-200°C to +1,370°C). These units combine fast readings, a superb ±32.9°F (0.5°C) accuracy, and a high resolution of 32.18°F (0.1°C). A large internal memory allows logging of up to 50,000 readings per channel ensuring no data is lost, ever. Six different logger sizes and channel configurations of six, 10, or 12 mean that the Q18 series allows optimal solutions for numerous situations.
The telemetry system uses the advanced radio-frequency technology for real-time transmission of product and process temperature data. Up to six data loggers can simultaneously connect to one receiver providing the ability to measure from up to 72 thermocouples. The system enables continuous temperature monitoring and analysis. Process parameters can be adjusted almost instantaneously to ensure high product quality, reduce scrap, and save energy. The number and position of the receivers can be optimized easily to ensure best data reception from within harsh industrial environments.
Automatic frequency selection, multiple data transmission, and transmitter internal-temperature compensation eliminate interference problems and ensure data integrity. The radio telemetry system operates on license-exempt frequencies and is fully tested and approved for use in Europe and the U.S.
