Wireless Gauge Reader
Non-invasively retrofit analog pressure/temperature gauges for remote monitoring
Analog dial gauges which measure pressure, temperature and airflow are found in virtually every facility monitoring compressors, chillers, air handling units, coolant loops etc. In older buildings, gauges may be the only instrumentation available, and technicians are required to perform regular “rounds” with clipboard and pencil to log gauge data. It is a time consuming and error prone process.
Traditionally, replacing gauges with electronic transducers have been disruptive – requiring process shutdown, leak checks, drawings changes, and installation of cabling. A single transducer point can cost $4,000 to $6,000 installed.
Cypress Envirosystems’ patented Wireless Gauge Reader is a non-invasive device which simply clips-on to the front face of an existing gauge to capture and transmit the reading. It installs in minutes and does not require removal of the old gauges, breaking pressure seals, performing leak checks, running wires or interrupting the underlying process. It costs 70% less to install than a traditional transducer.
