SensoNODE Blue Transmits Humidity and Temperature Data To Mobile Device Via Wireless Connection


Monitor inline and ambient conditions with sensors that are attached to a quick coupling for easy installation and removal

SensoNODE Blue is Parker’s series of Bluetooth-powered sensors that accurately track changes in pressure, temperature, and humidity levels of job-critical assets and processes. By attaching the sensor to the quick coupling fitting, users can measure inline and ambient humidity, pressure or temperature and instantly collect data from the sensors within range by installing SCOUT Mobile software on his or her mobile device. SCOUT software offers an advanced diagnostics and condition monitoring by computing the data into predictive analytics that plant managers and equipment managers can use to:

  • Identify issues before they escalate
  • Reduce downtime
  • Decrease maintenance costs
  • Avoid dangerous situations
  • Improve labor efficiency
  • Record better information for better decision-making

Humidity Sensor

SensoNODE Blue humidity sensors measure 0% to 100% relative humidity and are ideal for both ambient and inert compressed gas monitoring applications. Humidity sensors monitor in-line and ambient humidity levels, allowing users to track gradual trends of increased facility humidity and better diagnose in-line humidity issues. Other applications include:

  • Injection molding, where increased humidity in storage containers and the process lines can add moisture to the resin and changes the resin’s properties, which prevent it from molding properly.
  • Metal forming and fabrication, where moisture can cause corrosion and rust, increased dew point in compressed air lines and increased wear of moving parts.
  • Power Generation, where excessive moisture threatens the turbine’s gearbox with corrosion, reduced efficiency and breakdown.

Pressure Sensor

SensoNODE Blue pressure sensors are designed for accurate monitoring to alert users to any pressure drop and allow workers to diagnose issues early, which minimizes downtime, waste and rework. The sensors are compatible with a wide range of applications in a number of markets, including:

  • Injection molding, where insufficient pressure can lead to partially filled molds, batch inconsistencies and trapped air or moisture.
  • Metal forming and fabrication, where incorrect pressure levels for hydraulically or pneumatically driven tools and assets can lead to overload or failure, overworked assets, and decreased operational efficiency.
  • Mobile equipment, where incorrect pressure levels for hydraulic lines can lead to overload or failure, overworked assets and decreased operational efficiency.
  • Power Generation, where increased plant fuel consumption and/or reduced output can be telltale signs of compromised integrity of rotary components or turbine structural damage. Sensors can identify turbine issues by monitoring pressures changes in systems such as hydraulic lift pumps, power units, and cylinders, diverter damper controls and nitrogen generators.
  • Welding and Industrial Gas, where sudden drops in pressure can lead to multiple issue with efficiency and cost including costly production interruptions, asset operation faults and tank depletion.

Temperature Sensor

SensoNODE temperature sensors monitor ambient temperatures, diagnose in-line temperature issues and track real-time data on the end user’s mobile device. The sensors

  • Injection molding, where temperature inconsistencies can lead to part deformity, stress cracks and increased scrap, insufficient pressure can lead to partially filled molds, batch inconsistencies and trapped air or moisture.
  • Metal forming and fabrication, where inconsistencies in asset temperatures can have damaging effects that reduce precision and contribute to long-term damage.
  • Mobile equipment, where inconsistencies in machinery temperatures can have damaging effects, including overheating, breakdown and long-term damage.
  • Power Generation, where turbines overheat and operate inefficiently so sensors can identify when turbine filters and/or oil needs replacement based on temperature changes in hydraulic lift pumps, diverter damper controls and hydraulic power units.
  • Welding and Industrial Gas, where temperatures outside optimal operating conditions can leads to inefficient operation, asset damage and even potentially dangerous situations.
