Courtesy: RotorkRotork's RI Wireless is designed for wireless valve monitoring and diagnostics in the process industry. It transmits real-time position indication to the control room and enables predictive maintenance for actuated valves for increased safety and increased productivity and is designed for new and existing plants. The system comprises of a small, battery powered valve monitoring device (VMD) that is installed on existing or new valve actuators. The VMD collects dynamics-of-state data from the actuator or valve and transmits it as a 64-point packet, providing the information required for preventative maintenance.

A network of valve device routers (VDR) transfer the monitoring data from the VMDs on a wireless mesh network to the tunneling VDR (TVDR), which is the VDR that transfers the data to the RI wireless gateway. Several TVDRs can be connected to the RI wireless gateway via transmission control protocol (TCP) or Internet protocol (IP) networks.

The RI wireless management system (WMS) is a software management tool that provides operational and maintenance data in common industrial standard connections. The system is programmed and commissioned using a hand-held operator device (OD) instrument that provides one-to-one wireless communication with the VMDs. In addition to supporting installation and configuration, the primary functions of the OD are turning devices on and off and receiving real-time feedback regarding the status of individual VMDs.
