Measuring Water Pressure in Pipes Over Long Distances With Ethernet I/O

An Australian Waterboard was having difficulty finding the right product to measure the line pressure along water pipes.  They had to determine whether there had been a burst or a blockage along the pipe. Metromatics provided them with the Acromag Ethernet I/O with counters and timers.  This product enabled the Remote I/O to convert the analogue inputs to Modbus TCP/IP on ethernet.  This communicated back to the PLC System for Data logging, trending and histograms and also highlighted pipe issues.

Measure tension and compression in Dragline Mining

A Surface Mining customer in Northern Queensland needed to determine the tension and compression on a dragline excavator.  With an excavator out of business due to cracking in the welds; it can cost the mine significant amounts of money. To address this problem, Metromatics supplied a Dual Head Futek Load Cell.  We also placed the load cell in the suspension cables where it was able to accurately determine if there was a change in the current tension load.  The service staff were also able to repair it 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, efficiently and saftely guide airlines to the airport tarmac. They also work around the clock and use specialised equipment to do their job. Metromatics was able to help out when the keyboards of a local airport control tower were beginning to fail. Specialised keyboards with specific functions were required as ordinary keyboards could not cope.

There were two options.  The first option was to re-train all the staff on new keyboard functions (at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars).  The second option, was to install reverse engineered industrial keyboards with the same functions.  To avoid retraining, Metromatics supplied the Cortron Model 121 Keyboards.  These keyboards were industrial, backlit and also spill proof.  They also had the same functions as the previous keyboards, thus saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars.
