Industrial Automation Wireless Architecture

All of Cypress Envirosystems’ products fit into an overall seamless system to enable remote monitoring and control of existing, manual, non-communicating field devices. Our layered architecture allows both standalone functionality as well as easy integration with existing plant networks and automation systems.

Field Devices

Data Acquisition and Control Layer

  • Green Box Controller (GBC)  gathers and stores data from the wireless field devices and provide web-based control from anywhere.

Automation System Layer

  • Built-in software and database in the Green Box Controller has optional BACnet/IP, OPC  and SECS/GEM interface to integrate with existing plant automation systems from Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Siemens, TAC, Invensys, GE, Rockwell Automation, Emerson etc.

Human Machine Interface Layer

  • Includes web and text message based user interfaces for client PC’s or cell phones to query readings, graph history, and send set point commands.

1. Orifice diameter should not be confused with pipe diameter. Consult the steam trap manufacturer if orifice size is not known.
2. Calculations are theoretical estimates and actual results will vary. Payback calculation includes avoided lost steam and inspection labor. Benefits from avoided damage resulting from blocked traps are not included in model. The formula used for steam loss in this model is: L=24.24*Pa*D2. Where L=pounds/hour, Pa=Pgauge + Patm , D=orifice diameter.
3. Actual WSTM installed cost will vary based on volume and integrator.
4. Refers to the manual inspections of steam traps that are currently being done at the facility. The frequency determines the potential avoided failure time when using the WSTM.
5. The frequency and cost of inspection determine the labor savings enabled by the WSTM.
6. The failure rate per year should be based on historical data from the facility. 15-20% failure rates per year are typical. In unmaintained facilities, the failure rate can be much higher:
