Custom Sensors are “Standard” for Deeter

 

The Deeter Group, market leaders in the design, development and manufacture of electronic sensors and control systems, produces a very wide range of level sensor solutions for liquids; from simple water level switches and units designed as pure water level sensors to the very popular 20 series compact float switch and the advanced LVCS continuous liquid level sensor.

 

Between 70 to 80% of all sensors manufactured by Deeter in their UK factory are now custom designs. This is not as daunting as it might seem as with its long experience and a back catalogue of many hundreds of designs a new custom design can usually be put together from a combination of pre-designed parts and control circuits.

 

Peter Whiteaker, Managing Director of Deeter Group comments; ”More than 15 years experience of manufacturing sensors has clearly demonstrated that no matter how many standard products we design, customers will frequently want something different “. Our ability to draw on our vast experience allows us to design and deliver custom sensors very quickly with low engineering and tooling costs and in quantities that meet our customers’ needs.”

 

This depth of experience means that in most cases a totally new custom design can be created in 2-3 weeks with the only design costs the customer has to bear being that of the assembly drawing – costing in the region of £30.00 – and with no large minimum order conditions.  All mechanical parts, circuit design and PCB design is done in-house helping to ensure the quality and reliability The Deeter Group is known for.

 

 

Deeter custom sensors offer a wide range of float designs for different liquids with different specific gravities and probe materials including corrosion free food grade 316L stainless steel, PVC and polypropylene for water and acid monitoring systems. Sensing may be via reed relays or hall-effect diodes and sensor length, control head and output cable may all be customer specified.

 

To accompany their custom continuous sensors Deeter has a bespoke digital display unit designed for simple panel mounting which can accommodate an appropriate LED bar-graph display and legend.

 

Examples of custom sensor systems from Deeter include simple water level sensors, float level switches, fuel level sensor or level indicators for almost any fluid.  Installations include; agricultural vehicles, tractors and lawnmowers; rainwater harvesting; header tanks; bilge, water and fuel tanks on boats; road paving machines; nuclear submarines; breweries; aircraft fuel tanks and many more.

 

The Deeter Group product range includes level sensors, complete wireless sensing systems, industrial weighing equipment, reed and proximity switches, security switches, termination assemblies, litz and magnetic wire and solar power systems.

Deeter Group Introduces a Complete Wireless Sensor System for Industrial Measuring and Control

 

Wireless Base Station with 4-to-20mA Current Loop output

Rugged Battery Powered Wireless Level Sensor

2.4 GHz Frequency band High Power Radio Transceiver

Simple and reliable operation

UK Designed and manufactured

 

The Deeter Group, market leaders in the design, development and manufacture of electronic sensors and control systems, announces the launch of its ground breaking Wireless Sensor System for industrial measurement and control.

 

At the centre of the Deeter Wireless Sensor System is the simple-to-use Base Station designed to receive data from remote wireless devices such as the Deeter Liquid Vertical Sensor (LVCS-RF) or Wireless Sender. The base station converts remote sensor input signals into industry standard process outputs and acts as the coordinator for an IEEE 802.15.4 wireless sensor network. It operates on one of 16 radio frequency channels available in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The high power transceiver can achieve a range of greater than 1km, subject to local environmental factors. The internationally recognised IEEE 802.15.4 protocol allows several wireless sensor networks to share the same wireless spectrum without interference.

 

The Base Station provides four open-collector transistor outputs which may be used to drive external relays for pumps and alarms or Deeter’s Dual Level Controller. Continuous analogue sensor data such as liquid level is output using a 4-to-20mA current-loop driver which enables interfacing with industrial process controllers or the Deeter Group’s range of Current Loop Indicators. A serial communications channel provides full-duplex RS232 and half-duplex RS485 transceivers allowing software to be developed for linking to PCs, data-loggers, PLCs or other proprietary equipment.

 

Deeter is launching the wireless Base Station with the Liquid Vertical Continuous Sensor – Radio Frequency (LVCS-RF) wireless sensor. The LVCS-RF is designed to measure a continuous liquid level and transmit this information by radio to a Deeter Wireless Base Station at regular intervals.

 

The sensor circuit is fitted inside a Food Industry Standard 316L stainless steel stem attached to the head, with a 55mm magnetic stainless steel ball-float. Standard sensing lengths are 250mm, 500mm, 750mm and 1m. Custom lengths are available on request. The LVCS-RF is powered by a single 3.6V Lithium Thionyl Chloride battery with a life typically of 12 months, has a transmission range up to 1Km in ideal line-of-sight conditions, subject to local environmental factors, and an operating temperature range of -20 to +70ºC.

 

Deeter Electronics also offer a Multi-Channel Wireless Sensor System for more complex installations. This highly cost effective wireless monitoring solution will meet the needs of a large number of smaller industrial monitoring applications. The Multi-Channel system can display the state of up to eight analogue sensors and up to thirty two switched inputs.

 

Up to eight sensor nodes, which can be multi-input Deeter Wireless Senders or Deeter Wireless LVCS-RF Liquid Vertical Continuous Sensors, can send information to a Deeter multi-channel base station. Sensor outputs are displayed, for monitoring, on a personal computer connected via an RS485 to USB adaptor using Deeter Data Viewer Software.

 

To increase transmission range and overcome potential interference problems Deeter Electronics provide a Wireless Router and an external antenna kit. Up to four wireless routers may be incorporated into a monitoring system to provide a self-healing wireless mesh network offering maximum signal reliability.

 

The Deeter Group product range includes level sensors, industrial weighing equipment, reed and proximity switches, security switches, termination assemblies, litz and magnetic wire and solar power systems.

Press Release

Deeter Electronics “Sender” Extends Industrial Wireless Sensor System to incorporate Industry Standard Inputs

 

2.4 GHz Frequency band High Power Radio Transceiver

Simple and reliable operation

 

June 2010 – The Deeter Group; a market leading international company in the design, development and manufacture of electronic sensors and control systems, announces introduction of its Wireless Sender which increases the possible applications of the recently launched Deeter Wireless Sensor System for industrial measurement and control.

 

The new Wireless Sender is an extension to a Deeter Wireless Sensing System and communicates with a Deeter Base Station which acts as a coordinator for an IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network. The Deeter Sender has a number of sensing inputs and will transmit sensor data at regular intervals to the Base Station for conversion to process system outputs and alarms.

 

The Deeter Sender has the following sensor inputs; four discrete inputs from external switches, such as Deeter level sensors, float switches, or other voltage free contacts, one analogue resistive input, such as a Deeter Resistive LVCS (Liquid Vertical Continuous Sensor) or an industry standard 4 – 20mA current loop analogue input.

 

Wireless communication between the Deeter Sender and Base Station uses the internationally recognised IEEE 802.15.4 protocol in the 2.4GHz ISM radio band providing a range of up to 1km under ideal conditions.

 

The Sender is housed in an ABS enclosure with an external antenna and cable glands for power and signal inputs. An optional 3m extension lead and bracket are available for mounting the antenna in a position more favourable to wireless communication should the need arise. The unit can be powered by an internal 3.6V Lithium Thionyl Chloride battery or externally by a 5VDC mains powered wall adaptor. The internal battery acts as a no-break back-up should the external supply be interrupted.

 

If a 4-20mA current loop sensor input is being monitored, a small amount of power is derived from this source to help extend battery life. Battery life for a battery only powered Deeter Sender is greater than one year (based on a transmission interval of 10 seconds) transmission rates of 1 – 60 seconds are user configurable.

 

 

Information from a Deeter Sender will be received and processed by the simple-to-use Base Station designed to receive data from remote wireless devices such as the Deeter Liquid Vertical Sensor (LVCS-RF). The base station converts remote sensor input signals into industry standard process outputs. It operates on one of 16 radio frequency channels available in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The internationally recognised IEEE 802.15.4 protocol allows several wireless sensor networks to share the same wireless spectrum without interference.

 

The Base Station provides four open-collector transistor outputs which may be used to drive external relays for pumps and alarms or Deeter’s Dual Level Controller. Continuous analogue sensor data, such as liquid level, is output using a 4-to-20mA current-loop driver which enables interfacing with industrial process controllers or the Deeter Group’s range of Current Loop Indicators. A serial communications channel provides full-duplex RS232 and half-duplex RS485 transceivers allowing software to be developed for linking to PCs, data-loggers, PLCs or other proprietary equipment.

 

 

Peter Whiteaker, Managing Director of Deeter Electronics, comments; ”The introduction of our new Wireless Sender increases the flexibility of our wireless sensor system by allowing widely used conventional sensor inputs to be simply connected to our robust and easy to use wireless communication system. This not only allows existing sensors to communicate via a wireless network but also means our customers are not locked-in to using a single source for their measurement and control needs. The simplicity of installation, removal of cabling costs and increased reliability of control signals makes a Deeter Wireless Sensor System a very viable alternative to conventional control and instrumentation systems.”

 

The Deeter Group product range includes level sensors, industrial weighing equipment, reed and proximity switches, security switches, termination assemblies, litz and magnetic wire and solar power systems.
