Sensor Networks, Inc. Improves Coverage and Signal Performance with New Ultrasonic Transducer ArraySensor Networks, Inc., Boalsburg, PA, USA
February 15, 2016 - Boalsburg, PA – Sensor Networks, Inc. (SNI) announced today the launch of its new matPIMS™ ultrasonic transducer array. This 16-element flexible ultrasonic transducer array remotely measures and monitors remaining wall thickness in plant components such as piping, pressure vessels,and heat exchanger shells. The mat sensors can be arranged in a linear or area-array fashion which allows for improved coverage in safety-critical components such as pipe elbows.
matPIMS is unique in that all of the ultrasonic and digital communications hardware and software are co-located at the sensor array, which improves signal performance. It is ideally suited for direct burial, under insulation or for any other above ground TML / CML applications in carbon or stainless steel materials. matPIMS is used in connection with SNI’s smartPIMS Modbus system and optionally with webPIMS cloud-based data analysis and viewing software.
“We are excited to launch our new matPIMS solution here at NACE,” states Dr. James Barshinger, President and CTO of SNI. “We are dedicated to delivering solutions that are flexible, scalable, and easily configured to suit a variety of applications. Our new matPIMS is no exception, and gives our customers the better coverage and improved signal performance they require.”
Sensor Networks will be debuting the matPIMS solution at NACE Corrosion 2016, March 6-10 in Vancouver, BC. To learn more about Sensor Networks solutions, visit booth #806.
