Title
(EN) MULTI-POSITION FLUID RESONATOR SENSORS AND METHODS
(FR) DETECTEURS DE FLUIDE MULTI-POSITION ET PROCÉDÉS
Abstract
(EN) Fluid monitoring methods, sensors and systems are disclosed. Preferred embodiments comprise two or more mechanical resonators, preferably two or more flexural resonators configured for sensing, monitoring or evaluating one or more fluids at multiple positions within one or more fluidic systems. In the methods, sensors and systems of the invention, signals generated in response to stimulation of the mechanical resonators are communicated by multiplexing over a common communication path, and then deconvoluted with respect to the position of the resonators.
(FR) Cette invention concerne des procédés, détecteurs et systèmes de surveillance de niveaux de fluide. Dans des modes de réalisation préférés, on trouve deux résonateurs mécaniques, de préférence deux résonateurs à flexure ou plus conçus pour détecter, surveiller ou évaluer un ou plusieurs fluides dans des postions multiples à l'intérieur d'un ou de plusieurs systèmes fluidiques. Selon ces procédés, les détecteurs et systèmes de l'invention sont mis en communication par multiplexage via un chemin de communication commun, puis soumis à une déconvolution par rapport à la position des résonateurs.
