ontrol Microsystems’ Accutech wireless instruments are self-contained, battery-powered field units designed to monitor critical parameters and send the information wirelessly to a base radio which can then be integrated with the SCADA software. These cost-effective and easy to install instruments provide an alternative to traditional, hardwired sensor sites. Accutech instruments can be installed on the plant floor or in remote locations with extreme temperatures and humidity ranges. The majority of models offer IECExd Hazardous Area Rating and an industry leading three year warranty. Featuring pressure, temperature and flow instruments, the units are designed to be deployed in minutes. No wiring or power sources are required.

Accutech wireless instruments have been designed with the focus on simplifying network deployment. Each instrument is equipped with an LCD that reports radio signal strength (RSSI). Operators can setup and deploy the network in minutes without incurring the cost of extensive engineering design and network analysis. Advanced power management algorithms built into the Accutech instrument optimises battery use to ensure uninterrupted operation for up to 10 years.

Satisfying the need of plant managers and remote field operators, Accutech wireless instruments can be easily deployed to monitor existing measuring points and provide visibility to pressure, differential pressure, temperature, level and flow status across the site. Accutech’s base radios support up to 100 field instruments and can seamlessly integrate with Accutech wireless instruments are typically installed existing plant control systems through Modbus up to 750m from the base radio or at a shorter serial communications. With up to 60% reduction in distance if obstructions exist. Utilising low frequency, deployment costs, relative to a wired solution, and license-free, military-grade secure radios, Accutech approximately 20% in potential savings in annual wireless instruments offer excellent propagation operational costs, resulting from energy savings through obstruction and foliage, resulting in a solid and improved efficiency, the business case for and reliable communication link throughout the installing Accutech wireless instruments for mining operational life-cycle of the network. applications is a viable one. rd Australasian edition AustralasianMining MiningReview Review2011: 2011:3issue 2.1
