Innovative hydraulic flow monitoring
Webtec will showcase its new CTA series flow monitor. With its compact, rugged and resilient design, it is ideal for permanent installation in on- and off-highway vehicles, to monitor, record and transmit data about oil flow rates and temperature via a J1939 CANbus interface. This innovative device is perfect for use in predictive maintenance/IoT systems. By communicating directly to the vehicle’s control and monitoring network, it is possible to transmit performance data to the cloud or IoT system with subsequent download and analysis in real time. Further uses include the enablement of autonomous vehicle operation, closed-loop control, real-time diagnostics and safety interlocks. The units are fully EMC compliant, resistant to water spray and steam cleaning (IP69K protection rating), and unaffected by heavy vibration.
The CTA uses a turbine wheel mounted in the flow stream and a sensor that senses the passing of each turbine blade. The onboard electronics then convert the sensor pulses into a flow-rate signal ready for transmission via an SAE J1939 CANbus signal to the vehicle’s control system, which also serves as a link to a centralized monitoring and diagnostic station.
