Analysis goes wireless

Parker Hannifin has added the power of Bluetooth to its MS100 Moisture Sensor and its range of portable particle analysers.

This approach removes many of the hurdles faced by other condition monitoring hardware – local proximity, as opposed to direct access is all that is needed to collate and analyse test results.

Remote data collection via Bluetooth means no EMC/RFI communication restrictions are circumvented and maintenance engineers, with multiple applications to monitor, can manage their systems remotely, getting information direct to their computer or PDA.

Parker’s MS100 Moisture Sensor provides a real-time solution to continuous water contamination condition monitoring in hydraulic and lubricating systems used throughout manufacturing industry. It operates with petroleum/synthetic hydraulic and lubricating oil and a Phosphate Ester version can be specified.

As well as offering a two-minute test time, the company’s LaserCM particle analyser can also provide data logging, instant data retrieval from the handset, 32-character alpha-numeric data entry, graphing, automatic logging of tests via user handset input, storage and data download into trend analysis software.
