IPS-Digital-KMS: Compact Measuring Spot

The compact measuring spot KMS is the basic hardware within an IPS-Digital network and is placed directly at the starting point of the monitoring section at the location of the control computer. The KMS cnosists of a measuring spot assembled at the end of the pipeline and of a standard PC with software SSW, which should be installed within a distance of max. 20m.

Depending from requirement compact measuring spots will be used with 2- or 4-channel technology, KMS-2 or KMS-4, which cannot be interlaced with each other. All recorded data will be digitized and transmitted to the control software SSW respectively to the control computer.

IPS-Digital-Cu-KMS 2 / 4

One Cu-KMS will supervise and detect changes of impedance on maximum 2.500 m sensor wire per channel. For that the impulse-running-periodmeasurement will be used. Additional constant- and alternating voltage as well as the ohmic resistance will be determined.
