The project will facilitate the installation of pressure sensors in Danfoss high-pressure pumps, which are used, among other things, in freshwater plants. Instead of a demanding installation with signal and power cables, the 3 sensors per high-pressure pump can now be installed without any cables. The pressure sensors are equipped with an Xtellio BLE Ultra Low Power module, based on Xtellio’s BTLE IoT Platform, which is battery-operated and wirelessly connects to a nearby gateway. Data is here collected and will be uploaded to the cloud for subsequent analysis.
The Xtellio BLE module offers a high-precision A/D converter and can transfer measurement data to a Cloud-based IT system. The quality of the data is that good, that it is possible, via post-processing, to use it for predictive maintenance of the pumps.
Wireless IoT sensors are easy to integrate for even non-technical employees and significantly reduce the installation cost compared to traditional wired sensors.
An IoT setup for the environment requires a special robustness that we of course have taken into consideration when developing both Xtellio’s IoT Xenses and Gateway Xentral.
The Xenses can measure:
- 4-20 mA inputs
- Press in bar
- Can be used on most 4-20 mA sensor types
