I was trying to design a data logging application using something like a www.ruggedcircuits.com gator+ board with some sort of rugged zigbee module for measuring principally steam pressure (to 110 bar) and temperature (to 380 C).
Of course this is a development project with limited funding so I am trying to design a low cost R & D system rather than a big iron industrial control system as this stage.
Does anyone know where to get or have suggestions for:
- A rugged zigbee module similar to the rugged circuit gator+ board approach?
- Good bomb proof enclosures for connecting sensors that would house the board, zigbee module and power supply?
- Pressure and temperature sensors to cope with this sort of environment?
I know that there are really expensive sensors for plant installations, but they are not likely to be in budget as we will need lots of them.
Any ideas or leads would be appreciated.
