Using radio-frequency technology, the Datapaq Q18 Radio Telemetry System provides live, real-time temperature data transmission from inside industrial heating or cooling processes in a wide range of industries. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The Datapaq Q18 radio telemetry system uses the latest radio-frequency technology to allow data transmission from the data logger in real time. Designed for use with the Datapaq Q18 line of data loggers, the system is comprised of transmitters for installation inside the data logger, primary and secondary receivers, and Datapaq Insight analysis software. As the Datapaq system travels through the process, product and process temperature data can be viewed, analyzed, and reported instantaneously. 


Q18 data loggers measure temperatures between -200 C and +1,370 C. These versatile units combine fast readings, superb ±0.5 C accuracy, and a high resolution of 0.1 C. A large internal memory allows for the logging of up to 50,000 readings per channel ensuring no data is lost. With six logger sizes and channel configurations of 6, 10, or 12, the Q18 series enables optimum solutions for every need. 


This technology can be applied to monitoring key thermal processes in most industrial heating applications; from batch cooking and freezing in the food processing industry, to vacuum furnace surveying in the aerospace industry, to long duration, high temperature firing processes in the ceramics industry. The system enables continuous temperature monitoring and analysis. Process parameters can be adjusted almost instantaneously to ensure high product quality, reduce scrap, and save energy.
