A novel surface temperature measurement system for industrial applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

There is a requirement for accurate surface temperature measurement in many industries, which has given rise to a range of sensors designed to provide such data. The integrity of surface temperature data can be adversely affected by ambient contamination, surface roughness and contact area profile, which can induce a significant uncertainty in the measurement, depending on the sensor type, design and method of application. For precision manufacturing industries, thermal gradients cause deformity in machinery, resulting in component geometric error. In this paper, a novel sensor is proposed for surface temperature measurement in industrial environments. A unique architecture and multi-network system has been developed providing: Remote in-situ wireless temperature measurement, logic implementation, and low cost design with accuracy comparable to high-end thermistors minimisation of uncertainty in measurement. This paper provides information regarding the problem statement and the system development.
