Title
(EN) STEAM/HOT WATER DEVICE MONITORING
(FR) SURVEILLANCE DE DISPOSITIF À VAPEUR/À EAU CHAUDE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for testing steam traps or other similar devices in a hot water or steam system are described. A tester includes a wand that is handheld that can communicate with a handheld electronic device which in turn can communicate with a central monitor for storing and compiling readings as historical profile data. The wand includes a probe to physically contact the device to acoustically sense the performance of the device. The probe includes a probe tip and a stack of acoustic elements, an electrode, a stack mass, and a head to covert the acoustic signal into an electrical signal. The handheld device includes circuitry to process the information, interact with the user, and transmit information to and from the handheld electronic device and/or the central monitor.

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés permettant de tester des pièges à vapeur ou d'autres dispositifs similaires dans un système à eau chaude ou à vapeur. Un testeur comprend une baguette portative permettant de communiquer avec un dispositif électronique portatif qui peut lui-même communiquer avec un moniteur central afin de mémoriser et de compiler des relevés en tant que données de profil historique. La baguette comprend une sonde permettant d'entrer physiquement en contact avec le dispositif afin de détecter acoustiquement les performances du dispositif. La sonde comprend une pointe de sonde et une pile d'éléments acoustiques, une électrode, une masse d'empilement et une tête permettant de convertir le signal acoustique en un signal électrique. Le dispositif portatif comprend des circuits permettant de traiter les informations, d'interagir avec l'utilisateur et de transmettre des informations en direction et en provenance du dispositif électronique portatif et/ou du moniteur central.
