We recently were enquired with stringent data acquisition and logging requirement, e.g:
- A self-contained unit that will enable the measurement and recording of process data.
- Environmentally protected to appropriate standard
- Weight 30 kg (if possible)
- Ability to run off mains power for up to 8 hours
- Some volt free contacts for future upgrade.
- Data Acquisition rate. Minimum 1HZ continuous logging for up to 8 hrs.
- Data exportable to excel.
- Capture Flight bar data via bar code technology or RFID
- Instrumentation for pH, conductivity and temperature data.
- Dual voltage 110/230 Volts
After deep brainstorming at various levels of design contemplating all aspects of engineering, e.g user-friendliness, portability, costs- we opted to propose solution based on National Instruments Wireless Sensor Network platform. Our featured software solution IoTest is versatile and sensor data could be communicated in various industrial communication protocols eg wi-fi, bluetooth, analogue, ethernet, OPC amongst few.
