Non-contact temperature measurement system for continuous monitoring

28 May 2013

Raytek has introduced the Equipment Monitoring System (EMS), a non-contact temperature measurement system that enables continuous condition monitoring of actively powered components or operating machinery, supporting predictive and preventive maintenance.

Detecting temperature rises or spikes on the surface of equipment, the multiple head solution can act as an early warning device for critical assets, including switchgear and electrical cabinets, electrical motors, pumps, furnace controls and heating elements.

It gives notice of thermal issues as they begin to occur, as well as recording data for trend analysis. Early detection of heat-related faults and failures, along with maintenance performed as needed and not when estimated, result in reduced maintenance costs, less waste from unexpected downtime and higher safety. Temperatures are displayed on the system's LCD control module and/or remotely through Windows 7-compatible DataTemp Multidrop software.

The ‘plug and play’ EMS consists of a control box with circuit breaker, power supply and controller; a connection box with a cable; and sensors with adjustable mounting brackets. It utilises technology from its existing sensors, which allows up to eight sensor heads to can be connected to an MI3 electronics box.
The IP65 rated compact system is suited to use in enclosed locations to monitos temperature ranges of between -40 and +600 °C.

Developed with personnel safety in mind, the Raytek solution allows temperatures to be read from a safe location by anyone on active systems without additional equipment or special training. Users can manually program audible alarm settings through the integrated push button panel on the control module or easily communicate remotely via the RS485 serial interface and DataTemp software.
