Battery-free wireless sensor system monitors busbars and busways

Posted by & filed under Wireless Control Systems, Wireless Sensors, Wireless Systems.

Degraded or loose joins of high current busway elements and likewise connections of current consumers to busbars are subject to improper assembly and they degrade over time. Any loose or corroded joint or connection causes increasing resistive heat before eventually a fatal burnout occurs when the load peaks. Manual inspection often interferes with continuous production,… Read more »
