Other Non-Fluid Applications
SpikeWatcher™ PA is ideal for other applications where rapidly-changing, intermittent events (spikes) are of interest. Here are some examples from different industries where potentially damaging events can occur.
Power Spikes (Voltage Spikes)
The voltage in electrical power lines can change rapidly. Sometimes these power spikes can cause damage to equipment connected to these lines. Knowing when and how the power was altered is the first step in correcting the problem.
Rental Equipment Monitoring
SpikeWatcher™ can track the usage and condition of your expensive rental equipment. Excessive vibration, temperature extremes, overloading, and other intermittent conditions can be recorded, and the operator warned. Our cellular option lets you monitor your equipment from anywhere, so that you can act before costly repairs are needed.
The hardest problems to find when diagnosing machinery are those that happen quickly, and not very often. A power loss due to lightning can cause machine controls to crash. A relay with a weak spring can break a connection. SpikeWatcher™ PA can continually watch for these conditions, 24 hours a day, telling you exactly what happened and when.
Continually watching a remote site can be a tedious task. SpikeWatcher™ PA can detect motion, changes in light levels, presence of chemicals, or nearly any physical property.
Hazardous Material Detection
Combined with the appropriate sensors, SpikeWatcher™ PA can detect the presence of hazardous materials, such as chlorine, hydrocarbons, cyanide, or hydrogen sulfide. Leaks and intentional introduction of these materials can be detected quickly, 24 hours a day, even in remote locations.
