Hey, we have a machine that needs a temperature feedback control. Unfortunately, the machine rotates at 800 rpm, which has made finding options difficult. I decided to try a thermocouple. Do you have any other ideas?
Expert’s answer: Temperature application
Hey, there. I sure do have ideas for your temperature application. In your case, you need to focus less on what type of sensor to use and more on how to use it. Oho, this sounds like another job for wireless! Face it, you have a situation where a standard (wired) solution will need a lot of grunt work from your side to get ‘er done. You really wanna mess with that? I doubt it.
Still, you probably have to keep an eye on your wallet, too. Get out your calculator app and break down not only the costs of the materials but also the costs of the set up and maintenance. I still think you’ll save more pennies or euros or whatever if you go wireless. You gotta check it out for yourself, though.
If your thermocouple gets your range and accuracy, then you can probably pair it with a wireless transmitter. The wireless will give you updates in seconds, and that should help your bottom line.
