Understanding the Difference Between Orange Research Piston and Diaphragm Sensors

Orange Research

Orange Research is well known for their rugged and reliable differential pressure gauges, flow meters, switches and transmitters. They provide differential pressure measurement instruments that commonly use two different sensors to indicate the pressure difference across two ports, piston and diaphragm sensors.

Piston DP instruments are commonly used for liquid applications that will tolerate a slight amount of media bypass.

Diaphragm DP units, commonly used in air, gas and liquid applications, isolate the high and low pressure ports, eliminating and eliminate media bypass.

Understanding the specifics of your application will determine which design is better suited and consultation with an applications expert is strongly recommended.

IIoT Data Acquisition System for the Water and Wastewater Industries

Teledyne ISCO accQlink
IIoT (Industrial Internet-Of-Things), a network of connected devices, enables systems to collect, track, disseminate, and analyze valuable new insights. An amalgamation of various technologies such as big data, machine learning, automation, and sensor data, industrial IoT (IIoT) enables a connected enterprise by combing the information and operational department of the industry.

The Teledyne ISCO accQlink is an IIoT system for the Water and Wastewater Industries. It provides a modular and flexible remote data acquisition solution.

The accQlink can accept inputs from sensors that have RS232, RS485, SDI-12, Analog, and/or Contact output. The accQlink is a robust device that autonomously operates in the field using battery, solar, or permanent power sources. It collects data from different types of sensors, transmits securely, and stores the cloud server and/or customer server. Data can also be integrated into SCADA system, modeling software, business intelligence platform, ISCO Flowlink Pro, or other software.

With ISCO cloud server, the Data can be viewed and managed from anywhere using internet with graphical data management Web User Interface. SMS/Email alerts can be generated based on preprogrammed thresholds to take corrective actions and avoid any breakdown.

While transmitting the data from the accQlink, the built in Global SIM card picks the strongest available cell signal, from the multiple available cell networks, ensuring maximum uptime. The yearly service includes cell phone charges, data hosting, and web user interface. The accQlink also offers communication options such as LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network), Bluetooth, and Satellite.
