Alarm Callout Systems

November 15th, 2016|Categories: Alarm Callout, Environmental Monitoring, Health And Safety Monitoring, Industrial Hygiene Monitoring, Industrial Process Monitoring, Oil And Gas Monitoring, Remote Monitoring, Remote Surviellance, Renewable Energy|0 Comments

Alarm callout systems are imperative for industrial operations. An alarm callout system typically involves a sensor or device that monitors certain condition or threshold. When the device or sensor detects an anomaly, a Voice, SMS, and/or Email report is sent to a user that signal a problem that might require attention. Advanced monitoring [...]

Implementing Rolling Averages

April 22nd, 2016|Categories: Programming, Remote Monitoring|Tags: , , |0 Comments

When dealing with fluctuating data rolling averages are needed to even out the highs and the lows. For example a methane detector could bounce between 9% and 11% LEL with very little change in the actual methane in the air. An alarm set at 10% would constantly be alarming and then clearing causing operators or [...]

Resistor Wattage for Converting Analog Input 4-20mA to 1-5V

April 8th, 2016|Categories: Process Control|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

Choosing the correct wattage for Converting Analog Input 4-20mA to 1-5V is very important. With higher DC voltages you can quickly reach the upper limits of your resistors and possibly blow them up. For understanding how to convert 4-20mA to 1-5V Analog Inputs see our blog post converting analog input 4-20ma to 1-5v.   Calculating [...]

Converting Analog Input 4-20mA to 1-5V

March 15th, 2016|Categories: Devices, Environmental Monitoring, Health And Safety Monitoring, Industrial Hygiene Monitoring, Industrial Process Monitoring, Instrumentation, Oil And Gas Monitoring, Process Control, Remote Monitoring, Remote Surviellance, Renewable Energy|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

There are essentially 2 ways to read Analog inputs: reading current or reading voltage. Current is generally the most common because it can reach longer distances across the wire without losing analog input signal. Voltage, on the other-hand, will degrade over long distances producing inaccurate readings. When working with devices that only read 1-5V [...]

Roclink 800 Viewing Numeric Representation of TLPs

April 23rd, 2015|Categories: Communications, Devices, Oil And Gas Monitoring, Process Control, Remote Monitoring|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

There are two separate representations of the Roclink “registers” called TLPs (Type/Logical/Parameter). They can be viewed as either Text such as AIN A1, EU – Analog Input, A1, EU value, or they can be viewed as the more commonly used numeric format 3,0,14. The Roclink Protocol Manual will use the [...]
