Rotating / Reciprocating Parts

At I.C.E. Electronics we offer unique access to data from rotating and reciprocating parts through our innovative inductive wireless system and/or high fidelity wireless analogue technologies. We have a number of proven solutions that can be tailored to taking measurements from your part.

With the growth of condition based monitoring, and the demand for more online measurement, there is an increasing requirement to wirelessly transmit measured (or processed) data from the point of measurement.

At I.C.E. Electronics we offer unique access to data from rotating and reciprocating parts through our innovative inductive wireless and high fidelity wireless analogue technologies.

These technologies have been designed to easily integrate with our measurement interfaces, giving them unprecedented access to measurements from the rotating parts of machines across a range of applications.

A few applications where these systems we have deployed include:

ONLINE SHAFT MONITORING

The inductive wireless system is perfectly suited for long term, uninterrupted measurement from rotating shafts.

The system has successfully been deployed onto drive shafts, CAM shafts, steering columns and motorcycle sprockets.

In these cases a load cell(s) is interfaced directly with the remote transmitter. The transmitter is powered wirelessly and transmits data over a closely coupled wireless link.

The transmitter’s small size means it is easily embedded on the shaft. The receiver unit communicates with the transmitter via a coaxial cable and set of antennas. This means the system can be successfully fitted into hard to reach areas, allowing the receiver to be situated away from the shaft area.

The inductive wireless system can be tailored to many sensing technologies. I.C.E. Electronics has deployed the system into applications to measure load, strain, temperature and pressure.

TURBINE BLADE DEFECTION

We have developed a unique wireless telemetry system capable of offering precise, high bandwidth wireless capability without the cost of high-power consumption.

The remote transmitters are highly integrated and offer interfaces for strain gauges, thermocouples or PRT devices.

Supervision and control is performed in the digital domain, the sensor signals are transmitted via their own dedicated radio link. The system can be monitored remotely and controlled via a RS-485 or USB link. Multiple systems can be connected together to provide a suite of measurements.

I.C.E. Electronic’s high fidelity wireless analogue technology has been successfully deployed to measure turbine blade deflection during test and from moving parts within an engine.

SPEED AND VIBRATION

Tooth wheel and target based detection is a fundamental measurement for almost every rotating machine. This measurement is made with a wide variety of sensors from Variable Reluctance (VR) to lasers.

In test environments these signals may need to travel long distances, be shared between multiple pieces of equipment and cross isolated ground planes. On a machine, reliability, space and operating environment become factors.

Data may be used as a simple speed indicator, or used for complex vibration analysis. In both cases the end use may be a critical control signal or for condition based monitoring.

At I.C.E. Electronics we have created systems for both ends of the spectrum and have built up a selection of standard speed conditioning products.
