Distributed sensor network

Distributed sensor network on a submarine

A submarine is a sealed environment in which the crew are working and living for periods of up to 90 days. As a result, the atmosphere needs to be continually monitored and managed to limit exposure of the crew to potentially harmful substances and to ensure the atmosphere is capable of supporting life when the submarine is submerged. Analox Military Systems offer a distributed sensor network to assist with this.

A distributed sensor network comprises a centrally located PLC user interface linked to discrete gas sensors or sensor modules located around the boat. Typical gases monitored include oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2), in addition to refrigerant gases, submarine pressure and humidity.

This system is ideal for diesel boats which need to monitor life-support gases and contaminants to MPC60 minute and MPC24 hour limits but may have limited space.
