AcronymSENS-IT

Proposal titleDevelopment of a low-cost permanently installed microelectronic monitoring

system for process plant

AbstractLeading international industries and safety organisations have indicated a needfor the

improvement and utilisation of permanently installed monitoring systems todetect signs of

damage and its progression within plant. It is the aim of theproject to supply a central

control room with information from sensors to monitorstructural integrity and therefore

maintain containment. To detect early signs ofthis damage would reduce the potential for

unplanned downtime, repair, andenvironmental pollution. This project aims to develop

innovative and improvedtechniques in permanent sensing technology. Relevant

technology advances couldinclude new materials, new sensing techniques, microelectronics,

sensor dataprocessing, and use of global communication methods. The Small Electronics

NetworkSensor Integrity Tool (SENS-IT) is proposed to be the solution. It is proposed to

be modular in form, the sensor module, the processing/ temporary storage module,and

the communication module.
