Temperature and pressure are two of the most important parameters in industrial environments or the water business. They are often measured together, for example on industrial boiler systems, in which case hot water from a boiler is transferred to the circulating water of the heating system which is then pushed around the building.
Why you need live and online data
When measuring temperature and pressure in the same location, it's important to get live sensor data. You want to get an idea of how and where heat is transferred and what the impact of pressure readings is. That means you want to inspect the situation at this time, and not how it was 30 minutes ago. Live data is important if you're analyzing industrial processes.
You also want this data to be available online and in real-time. The advantage of an online data logging system is the ability to access your data on any cloud connected device, a computer, tablet or smartphone. Data loggers with a local storage like USB or an SD card are really a thing of the past. Time is money and wireless technology has become quite affordable in the past years.
Building your own setup
Getting started with your own measuring setup is not hard. Technology has come a long way since the time of PLCs and SCADA systems (i.e. the eighties).
There's a new generation of hardware and software solutions that we call the "Internet of Things". In this example we're using hardware from Honeywell, Maxim Integrated and Crodeon Technologies.
Our setup uses the DS18B20 digital temperature sensor from Maxim, built in a wired version with M12 connector. The Honeywell MIP sensor is a heavy duty, media-isolated pressure transducer in a compact, stainless steel construction. Both sensors are plug & play compatible with the Crodeon Reporter. From there, data is transferred wirelessly to the cloud where we could read it using the Crodeon Dashboard or access it using a Rest API.
Getting the hardware installed took us no more than 5 minutes. Cloud connection was established right away. Figuring out the API was about 15 minutes of work. Get in touch if you need more information about this project.
