PaWS™ Passive Wireless Sensing enables valuable new measurements in hostile and challenging environments.
line
Syntonics’ PaWS™ passive wireless sensor technology enables valuable new measurements — such as strain, torque, temperature, corrosion, pressure — in hostile/challenging environments including turbines, rotating or reciprocating machinery, pipelines and reaction vessels.

Wired sensors can be difficult and expensive to install; wiring and slip rings are prone to fail in hostile environments; and some measurements aren’t possible with today’s instruments. For example:

  • PaWS™ sensors can be installed in hot, rotating or reciprocating machinery and interrogated wirelessly to measure strain, torque, temperature, pressure, and other important parameters.
  • PaWS™ sensors can be installed at pipeline joints and interrogated from a distance to detect corrosion.

PaWS™ sensors are:

  • Passive (no batteries)
  • Wireless (remote interrogation with no wires, no slip rings)
  • Ultra lightweight and conformal
  • Operable in hostile or challenging environments

Originally developed to measure blade strain in an operating jet engine, PaWS technology can measure engineering and process variables in military/aerospace, oil & gas, industrial, and process manufacturing environments.
