  14. 14. Outline • Who is TSI Technologies? • Technology 1) Microwire Temperature Sensing System • Technology 2) Eddy Current Thermometer TSI Technologies CONFIDENTIAL
  15. 15. What/Who is TSI Technologies? • Intellectual Property, Product Development & Engineering Design Firm • We Invent, Develop, Patent, License, Assist Licensee to Market • We Offer Licensees A Variety of Cutting Edge Patented Temperature Sensing and Control Technologies – We Will Discuss Three of Those Today – In Order of Product Maturity CONFIDENTIAL
  16. 16. What/Who is TSI Technologies? • Experience Helping Licensees Get Products to Market Rubber Processing Monitor/Control – Dynisco Fast Food Delivery – CookTek, Vesture 2 1 Room Service – Dinex, CookTek Surface Buffet CookTek CONFIDENTIAL Aerospace Composite Curing/Repair – AvPro
  17. 17. Microwire Temperature Sensing Systems • Components - Similar to RFID – Reader – Transmit Power/Receive/Data Analysis • Located Outside of Curing/Hot Environment – Antennae – Copper Coils/Substrate • Inside Curing/Hot Environment (Up to Four Per Today’s Reader) – Magnetic Temperature Sensor (MTS) • Molded Permanently into Object (One Per Antenna) – Host Computer • Computer Software Can be Moved to Reader Micro CONFIDENTIAL
  18. 18. Microwire Temperature Sensing Systems • Why Should You Care? Why Not RFID? – MTS’s Can Be Read Remotely Through Conducting Material • We Can Read MTS Temperature Through Carbon Fibers, Tire Steel Belts, etc. – MTS’s Are So Small That They Do Not Constitute a Part Flaw • 0.09” Diameter Tube, One Inch Long – MTS’s Survive High Temperatures/Pressures • Can Survive Tire Molding Process, Composite Curing Process, etc. CONFIDENTIAL
  19. 19. Microwire Temperature Sensing Systems • Features – Self-Calibrating Sensor -- During The Process • This is a Process Sensor – We Assume That The Sensor is Embedded In a Place Where Actual Temperature Is NOT Measured By Any Other Sensor – Thus No Way To Know Starting Temperature – Non-Linear Temperature Accuracy • More Accurate Near Curie Temperature (216.5C/422F) Than Far Below It ( 175C – 216.5C, +/- 2C, 150C - 175C, +/- 3C, 61C-150C, +/-4C) – Polling Rate • Approximately One Per Second CONFIDENTIAL
  20. 20. Microwire Temperature Sensing Systems • Theory Basics – We are Measuring Normalized Saturization Magnetization of Sensing Microwire • Known Dependence Upon Temperature • Calibration of Normalized Ms vs. T Curve at Two Points (Upper – Curie Temp of Sensing Wire; Lower – Curie Point of Third Autocalibration Wire DURING PROCESS) CONFIDENTIAL
  21. 21. Microwire Temperature Sensing Systems • Theory Basics LOWER TEMPERATURE HIGHER TEMPERATURE CONFIDENTIAL
  22. 22. Microwire Temperature Sensing Systems • Representative Results for Autoclave Curing Autocalibration Point CONFIDENTIAL
  23. 23. Example Microwire Sensing Process: Tire Curing • Microwire Sensor (MTS) Embedded in Tire Tread During Layup of Uncured Tire – Antenna Moves Into Position After Mold Closes to Allow Remote Measurement of MTS Temperature. Information Is Used to Stop Press When Tire Has Actually Achieved Cure State – Not Simply After a Generic Time/Temperature Profile That Capture ALL “Cakes” Antenna Collapsible Arm From Center Hub Microwire Sensor CONFIDENTIAL
  24. 24. Eddy Current Thermometer • Components - Similar to RFID – Reader – Transmit Power/Receive/Data Analysis • Remote From Object To Be Measured – Antennae – Copper Coils/Substrate • Remote From Object To Be Measured – Sensor – Highly Conductive Object (Coin, Stick, etc.) Placed Next to Object to Be Measured OR Object Itself (if Has a Conductive Layer) – Host Computer CONFIDENTIAL • Computer Software Can be Moved to Reader Micro
  25. 25. Eddy Current Thermometer • Why Should You Care? Why Not RFID? – Sensor Can Be Remotely Read Through Multiple Thick Layers of Stainless Steel or Non-Magnetic Metals • For Instance, A Clad Cooking Pan (SS/Aluminum/SS) Can Be the Sensor – Sensors are Inexpensive • Aluminum, Copper, or Like-Alloy Coins, Sticks, etc. – Can Be Plated With Stainless Steel for Non-Corrosion – OR Object Itself – Sensors Can Withstand High Temperature • Upper Limit is Melting Temperature of Metal Used, Extremely Low Temperature Limit CONFIDENTIAL
  26. 26. Eddy Current Thermometer • Features – One-Time Calibration -- Upon Installation • Single Temperature Calibration – Measured Temperature Independent of Antenna-To-Sensor Distance – High Temperature Accuracy • Linear Accuracy +/- 1C – Polling Rate • Approximately One Per Second CONFIDENTIAL
  27. 27. Eddy Current Thermometer • Theory Basics – We are Measuring Voltage Induced in Our Antenna Receive Coil Caused by Induced Eddy Currents in the Sensor • Known Dependence Upon Bulk Conductivity of Metal • Conductivity of KNOWN Metal (Sensor) Has Well-Documented Dependence Upon Temperature – Thus We Deduce Temperature CONFIDENTIAL
  28. 28. Example Eddy Current Thermometer Application • Stainless-Clad Copper Coin Welded to Position Inside Stainless Pressure Vessel – Antenna Can Be Placed Adjacent Outer Vessel Wall to Read Temperature Inside of Pressure Vessel – NO FITTING REQUIRED FOR THERMOCOUPLE THAT IS A LEAK WAITING TO HAPPEN Antenna Can Be Part of Hand Held, Battery Powered Reader CONFIDENTIAL

  34. 34.  sensing.honeywell.com Why the Growth in Industrial?  Reduced wiring complexity  Cuts commissioning time  Eliminates wire and connector integrity issues  Solves electrical isolation challenges  Fewer tripping hazards  No trenching or breaking concrete  Simplified trouble-shooting  Not tethered by the wire - flexibility (add/move/change)  Lower cost on long wire runs  Can be applied where traditional devices are not feasible Copyright © 2013 Honeywell International Inc.

  35. 35.  sensing.honeywell.com Things to Consider Reliability Security Foolproof User-friendly Rugged fit for tough applications Cost/Complexity Who Sees Highest Value • • • Look for solutions that provide device diagnostics Consider mounting locations for best signal strength Look for self healing network (retries) • • • • • Look for standards-based encryption If considering WiFi, discuss with IT first (who controls?) Understand difference between Security and Interference Easy to commission with set-up tools and diagnostics Not all wireless is the same – try them first • • • • Automatic field pairing and diagnostic information Ensure RF used is globally license-free Configurable to interface with standard controllers Low power • • • • Consider trade-offs between a packaged device, and interfaces that require additional packaging Consider EMI/EMC requirements. Require test data. Look at sealing and temp ratings of the field devices Mesh network verses Point-2-Point • Differentiator for wireless many times is the end user Copyright © 2013 Honeywell International Inc.
