How SteamEye WorksSteamEye uses a radio frequency (RF) wireless transmitter mounted at each steam trap to detect their operating state. That operating state is then transmitted wirelessly to a central receiver that can then alert system operators of trap failure. SteamEye technology is on 24/7 — constantly reporting the status of your steam traps for optimum energy system management and savings. It can be installed on high pressure traps in service without shutting off the steam, and its remote, wireless operation addresses the labor costs and safety issues associated with manual monitoring.
Range of the RF SignalIn outdoor installations where the transmitter is within the line of sight of the receiver, the typical range is 1,200 feet. In facilities where the signal must travel through walls or floors, the range varies. Typically, the signal range is approximately 300 feet. If the receiver is out of the range of a transmitter, repeaters can be placed between the transmitter and receiver to “repeat” the signal from transmitter to receiver. Eliminate Steam Trap Monitoring Problems Armstrong’s SteamEye, together with their Sage energy management application, help eliminate traditional trap monitoring and management problems and dramatically improve your system efficiency.
