Title (EN) DETECTING AND IDENTIFYING A CHANGE IN A VIBRATORY METER
(FR) DÉTECTION ET IDENTIFICATION D'UN CHANGEMENT DANS UN APPAREIL DE MESURE VIBRATOIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A meter electronics (20) and a method for detecting and identifying a change in a vibratory meter (5) is provided. The meter electronics (20) includes an interface (201) configured to receive sensor signals (100) from a meter assembly (10) and provide information based on the sensor signals (100) and a processing system (202) communicatively coupled to the interface (201). The processing system (202) is configured to use the information to determine a first stiffness change (244) associated with a first location of a conduit (130, 130') of the vibratory meter (5), determine a second stiffness change (254) associated with a second location of the conduit (130, 130') of the vibratory meter (5), and determine a condition of the conduit (130, 130') based on the first stiffness change and the second stiffness change.
(FR) L'invention concerne une électronique d'appareil de mesure (20) et un procédé de détection et d'identification d'un changement dans un appareil de mesure vibratoire (5). L'électronique d'appareil de mesure (20) comprend une interface (201) conçue pour recevoir des signaux de capteur (100) à partir d'un ensemble appareil de mesure (10) et pour fournir des informations en fonction des signaux de capteur (100), et un système de traitement (202) couplé en communication à l'interface (201). Le système de traitement (202) est conçu pour utiliser les informations afin de déterminer un premier changement de rigidité (244) associé à un premier emplacement d'un conduit (130, 130') de l'appareil de mesure vibratoire (5), afin de déterminer un second changement de rigidité (254) associé à un second emplacement du conduit (130, 130') de l'appareil de mesure vibratoire (5), et afin de déterminer un état du conduit (130, 130') en fonction du premier changement de rigidité et du second changement de rigidité.
