The RI Wireless Valve Monitoring Device (VMD) is the basic component of the RI Wireless Monitoring System. It is installed on top of the monitored valve or actuator and consists of a stem attached mechanically to the top of the valve or actuator axle.
The VMW incorporates the means and sensors to measure the angle which corresponds to the opening status of the valve (in degrees or opening percentage). The valve status is transmitted by an internal bi-directional transceiver that is based on the standard ZigBee protocol. A dedicated LF receiver in the VMD supports unique maintenance and provisioning procedures.
