HUDSON, NEW HAMPSHIRE - SenGenuity, the Sensors division of Vectron International, today announced its TempTrackr Wireless Temperature Measurement Solution.

This unique measurement system allows for parallel interrogation of several independent passive temperature sensors. Through use of independent frequency bands the sensors maintain unique identification within the system architecture.

Additionally, because the sensors are SAW based, they require no power source. This solution is ideal for applications where providing power and communication to the sensor is restricted (e.g. rotating equipment, high temp/pressure/power environments, restricted access locations, etc.).

With unparalleled mobility, portability, robustness and performance for real-time in-process temperature sensing applications, the TempTrackr provides a quick and easy-to-use solution that facilitates providing system integrators and OEMs a platform for customized solutions.

SenGenuity’s TempTrackr Multi-Sensor kit includes four passive wireless temperature sensors that are capable of reading temperatures between 0 and 120 degrees C from a maximum interrogation distance of 70 inches. The wireless sensors are powered by bursts of RF emitted by a wireless interrogator which excite SAW resonators within each sensor. A feedback signal conditioned by the temperature is then created by the resonator and fed back electromagnetically to the wireless interrogator using the same antenna set.

“Our TempTrackr wireless temperature measurement solution now provides end-customers and system integrators with real-time wireless solutions with batteryless temperature sensors that can be individually identified,” said Kerem Durdag, director of sales and marketing. “System designers and integrators requested that we provide them with a cost-effective leading edge solution to determine traceable, location-specific temperature in a very portable and easy-to-install wireless sensing system. They utilize this information to enable content-rich process control decisions.”

The TempTrackr can be used with any of SenGenuity’s TFSS433D wireless temperature sensors which use robust and reliable semiconductor technology and are installed in challenging applications. The TempTrackr Multi-Sensor kit includes four passively operated TFSS433D sensors with four dipole antennas for each of the sensors. The system electronics and software is factory configured to recognize and monitor the four sensors individually. Also included is a wireless interrogator with its own dipole antenna, accompanied with a USB connector to facilitate connectivity to any computer for data visualization and acquisition.

The TempTrackr provides a streamlined wireless SAW sensor interrogation solution that requires minimal real estate allowing flexibility for system engineers to add significant value-add to their designs. Additionally, customers can leverage the TempTrackr to work with SenGenuity on customized solutions for their particular needs and requirements.
