Product Spotlight

Accutech has introduced to the industrial marketplace the only completely wire-free monitoring system. This standalone technology pinpoints service needs, "everything is OK" status, as well as any communications errors, 24/7. The Accutech Wireless Instrumentation monitoring system is a turnkey, self-powered package that provides a cost-effective solution to the challenge of monitoring process variables in remote, hard-to-access, or hazardous locations. The field transmitters include temperature, pressure, dP, analog 4-20 ma, digital inputs, and acoustic.

Developed by Accutech, a division of Adaptive Instruments, LLC, these robust products are truly wireless. And, right out of the box, they perform in harsh –- even hazardous –- industrial environments.
• For long term monitoring of variables in remote locations
• For short term data gathering on process conditions
• For new installations, to test a project's economic viability
The implementation
No wires. No permits. No licenses. Configure, start-up and test in the shop. Install in the field.

Wireless Data Network
Your field units communicate in a secure, digital protocol over a band of frequencies from 902 MHz to 928 MHz. This data communication technique has been the backbone of the military's secure communications protocols for many years. It requires no FCC site license. The multiple frequency transmissions, send-receive acknowledgements and built-in data redundancy have proven to be extremely robust.

Update Speed
Update speed is user-settable to match the needs of the application. The "Smart-Update" capability immediately initiates a message when a fault is detected. Otherwise a "Healthy Heartbeat" communication is initiated with the base radio on a regular interval to pass status and any new configuration information.

Range up to 3,000 feet with omni-directional antenna. Other options are available to increase range to over 6000 feet.

Battery Life
Generally 5 years with factory default update speed and communication parameters.
