Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces the release of new pressure and temperature sensors for the Sushi Sensor wireless industrial IoT (IIoT) solution in Europe, North America, and specific Southeast Asian markets, with the release in other markets set to follow at a later date. These additions to the Sushi Sensor lineup, part of the OpreX™ Asset Management and Integrity family, were first released in Japan in July 2019.
The new sensors facilitate the online collection of pressure and temperature data from equipment such as tanks and furnaces, and supplement the vibration and surface temperature monitoring capabilities of the integrated XS770A wireless vibration sensor launched in 2018. The expanded sensor lineup allows for equipment condition monitoring based on a wider variety of plant data. This in turn enables the reduction of equipment inspection man-hours and the detection of signs of equipment abnormalities at an early stage (more info).
