AIM® Steam Trap Monitoring – WirelessHART®

Armstrong Intelligent Monitoring – AIM® 5700 – is a wireless monitoring technology that efficiently monitors and evaluates steam trap operation. The AIM® 5700 identifies the conditions of a steam trap to determine significant problems that could put your operation at risk. The AIM® 5700 can accurately detect potential issues such as plugged and blow-thru steam traps, which can result in a range of issues from failed equipment to loss of product to safety concerns. Immediate failure notification from the AIM® 5700 helps identify the root cause while you minimize production losses and reduce energy consumption. Using non-intrusive technology combined with WirelessHART®, the AIM® 5700 is the ideal solution for any temporary or permanent 24/7 steam trap monitoring.

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.
