Measuring Water Pressure in pipes over long distances using Ethernet I/O
An Australian Waterboard was having difficulty finding the right product to measure the line pressure along water pipes to determine whether there had been a burst or a blockage along it. Metromatics were able to offer the Acromag Ethernet I/O with counters and timers which enables the Remote I/O to convert the analogue inputs to Modbus TCP/IP on ethernet which communicates back to the PLC System for Data logging, trending and histograms and highlight if there is an issue in the pipe.
Measure tension and compression in Dragline Mining
A mining customer needed to determine the tension and compression being placed on a dragline excavator used in Surface Mining in Northern Queensland. With an excavator out of business due to cracking in the welds; it can cost the mine significant amounts of money. Metromatics were able to supply a Dual Head Futek Load Cell which was placed in the suspension cables and was able to accurately determine if there was a change in the current tension load which enabled the service staff to make a repair before it was out of action.
Reverse engineering of specialised digital keyboards for Airport Control Tower
Airport Control Towers have numerous staff whose function is to successfully guide airlines to the airport tarmac in an efficient and safe method. They work around the clock and use specialised equipment to do their job. Their current keyboards were beginning to fail. However, these keyboards were specially designed and had certain functions that an ordinary keyboard could not cope with. The option was to either re-train all the staff on new keyboard functions (which would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars) or to install industrial keyboards reverse engineered to meet the same functions. Metromatics were able to supply the Cortron Model 121 Keyboards that were industrial, backlit, spill proof and developed to be the same as they had previously.
