(FR) SYSTÈME POUR SURVEILLER L'ÉPAISSEUR D'UN OU DE PLUSIEURS BIEN(S) À L'AIDE D'UN SYSTÈME DE MESURE ULTRASONORE, D'UN MODULE DE COMMUTATION DE MULTIPLEXEUR ET D'UNE CONNEXION À DEUX CONDUCTEURS, ET PROCÉDÉ DE MISE EN OEUVRE ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A system for monitoring a thickness of an asset includes an ultrasonic measurement system and a multiplexer switch module connected by a primary two-conductor connection. The multiplexer switch module includes one or more individual switches that are connected to one or more secondary connections that each terminate in an ultrasonic sensing element. The ultrasonic measurement system includes a controller configured to send a switching command signal to the multiplexer switch module to selectively close an individual switch of the individual switches to connect the primary two-conductor connection with a respective one of the secondary connections. The ultrasonic measurement system is configured to send an electrical pulse through the primary two-conductor connection across the closed individual switch and through the respective secondary connection to cause the associated ultrasonic transducer to generate an ultrasonic wave.

L'invention concerne un système pour surveiller l'épaisseur d'un bien, qui comprend un système de mesure ultrasonore et un module de commutation de multiplexeur connectés par une connexion primaire à deux conducteurs. Le module de commutation de multiplexeur comprend un ou plusieurs commutateur(s) individuel(s) qui est/sont connecté(s) à une ou plusieurs connexion(s) secondaire(s) aboutissant chacune dans un élément de détection ultrasonore. Le système de mesure ultrasonore comprend un dispositif de commande configuré pour envoyer un signal de commande de commutation au module de commutation de multiplexeur pour fermer sélectivement un des commutateurs individuels, afin de connecter la connexion primaire à deux conducteurs avec une connexion respective parmi les connexions secondaires. Le système de mesure ultrasonore est configuré pour envoyer une impulsion électrique par l'intermédiaire de la connexion primaire à deux conducteurs à travers le commutateur individuel fermé, et à travers la connexion secondaire respective pour amener le transducteur ultrasonore associé à générer une onde ultrasonore.
