In industrial applications, electrical noise can be a significant concern. The 4-20 mA output standard, embraced by the CONMONSense sensors, excels in such scenarios. Its high immunity to electrical noise ensures accurate and consistent readings over long distances, even in harsh industrial environments where other signal types may falter.
Two Distinct Output Modes: Dynamic (AC) and Static (DC)
CONMONSense sensors are designed to provide both dynamic (AC) and static (DC) output modes. The dynamic mode delivers a continuous signal that oscillates around a bias voltage (in the case of voltage output) or bias current (in the case of current output). This signal, sampled at a minimum rate of 10 kHz, can be further post-processed and analyzed to extract valuable information about the health of the asset being monitored. Spectral transformation techniques such as FFT or envelope FFT can highlight the most prominent frequencies and their amplitudes in a signal. On the other hand, statistical indicators like RMS (Root Mean Square), Peak Value, and Crest Factor are employed for tracking trends and triggering alarms.
In the static mode (DC output), CONMONSense sensors provide RMS values representing ultrasound energy in the band-pass frequency. While this mode doesn’t offer the same level of detailed information as the dynamic mode, it is valuable for tracking changes and trends over an extended period, making it an excellent tool for proactive maintenance.
Selecting the Right Sensor
The choice between dynamic and static modes largely depends on your acquisition system’s specifications and capabilities. A minimum sampling rate of 10 kHz is essential to avoid aliasing phenomenon and loss of information in the dynamic mode.
