FR-Tracker™ 1.0 Floating Roof Monitoring System
FR-Tracker 1.0 is Syscor's first commerically available floating roof monitoring system. Existing systems are fully supported by Syscor, however, FR-Tracker 2.0 is now supplied for new floating roof monitoring system installations. The main design changes from FR-Tracker 1.0 to 2.0 were driven by customer input, experience gained in the field, and industry adoption of the WirelessHART protocol. With more than 30 million HART devices in the field, switching from a proprietary communication protocol to WirelessHART allows FR-Tracker 2.0 to integrate seamlessly into existing infrastructure. Modularizing the system components allows more flexibility in solution applications.
FR-Tracker 1.0 is a standalone monitoring package that contains Multi-Sensors, Repeaters, and a Base Station designed to monitor and record key parameters of AST floating roofs.
- The Base Station acts as the system controller that monitors and stores data from FR-Tracker system field devices. The Base Station’s web interface enables an operator to view real-time data and alarms plus review historical data and events for multiple tanks.
- The intrinsically safe Repeater provides a communications link between the Multi-Sensors on the tank's floating roof and the Base Station. Multiple Repeaters may be used to form a network to cover several tanks and connect to a single Base Station.
- The intrinsically safe Multi-Sensor integrates proven sensor technologies that do not require maintenance or recalibration. Several Multi-Sensor units are mounted on the floating roof with a magnetic or adhesive bracket. A lithium battery pack powers the device for approximately 10 years.
