Wireless Alarm Trigger Hands On Class

Tony Cocchiarella, OleumTech

Glenn Longley, OleumTech

Room: 351 E

The objective of this class is to demonstrate how an alarm can be triggered wirelessly based on a set value without the use of a controller.  Each student will be provided with a wireless analog transmitter with a dial connected to adjust voltage.  Each transmitter will be configured to report to a gateway.  The scaling will be adjusted within the transmitter to show a value of 1 when the voltage reaches a certain point.  This value will then be reported to the gateway which can then source a digital output and trigger a light. The students will be equipped with the knowledge to be able to trigger a discrete output based on a scaled value without the use of a PLC/RTU/HMI.

Track: System Architecture for Industrial Control Systems

Room: 351 D

We focus on the areas that we know and are comfortable with.  Engineers look at the system design, tower crews look at stacking the tower and attorneys look at the legal side. However, for the best system to meet your customer’s needs, a close partnership between the RF engineering team and the regulatory expert must to be established.  Join us today to learn how to design the best system possible for your customer while using the regulations to your advantage.  We will discuss how engineering and regulations can work synergistically, waivers, special considerations, how to navigate tricky regulatory roadblocks and of course, making the regulations work for your project!
