AIM® Acoustic Monitoring – WirelessHART®

Armstrong Intelligent Monitoring – AIM® Model AD5000 – is a wireless monitoring technology designed to monitor acoustic patterns associated with leaking gasses and high pressure fluids. The AIM® AD5000 is the ideal solution to identify leaking isolation or safety relief valves. Identifying the source quickly can reduce the use of flare to burn off product and the costly fines that may be associated with it.

Instant notification helps to minimize material and production loss. Ultimately, the AD5000 can help cut down on environmental fines, reduce product recirculation and improve safety by instantly identifying the leak source. Using non-intrusive technology combined with WirelessHART, the AIM® AD5000 is the ideal solution for any temporary or permanent 24/7 acoustic

WirelessHART® Protocol

WirelessHART® is a highly reliable, easy to deploy wireless communications protocol for process automation applications. It adds wireless capabilities to HART technology while maintaining
compatibility with existing HART devices, commands, and tools. WirelessHART uses mesh networking technology. Each device in a mesh network can serve as a router for messages from other devices. In other words, a device doesn’t have to communicate directly to a gateway, but just forward its message to the next closest device. This extends the range of the network and provides redundant communication routes to increase reliability, particularly in the difficult radio environment found in process facilities. The Armstrong Intelligent Monitoring (AIM®) ST5700 series is the only steam traps WirelessHART® registered by FieldComm GroupTM.
