A Real Time Wireless Multi –Parameter monitoring System with ZigBee and LabVIEW
Pages : 1667-1671
Wireless communication technologies become popular in real-time industrial environments. The availability of products and solutions based on the IEEE 802.11 standards make such kind of communication technology more cost effective in distributed control systems and process parameter measurement systems. This paper describes fundamental work of real time multi parameter monitoring system with ZigBee, micro controller and Graphical Programming language (LabVIEW). Data acquisition system of two parameter temperature and distance reported in this paper. After acquiring the analog data from the sensor with suitable signal conditional and amplification is fed to micro controller then it is connected to the ZigBee- transmitter module, which transmits the data and at the other end the ZigBee receiver. There is arrangement of LCD for local data measurement and data received in computer via RS232 and ZigBee hence its provide redundancy which is one of the important parameter in a real time industrial data measurement. The methodology describe in the proposed work will be very useful for designing wireless data acquisition system in the industrial application likes to measure liquid level and temperature at gas station, For measurement of process parameters in batch process and to measure various biomedical signals for patient monitoring system.
