Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TIDM-RF430-TEMPSENSE, MSP-EXP430FR4133, TRF7970A
I am working with the TIDM-RF430-TEMPSENSE temperature sensing patch, MSP-EXP430FR4133, and TRF7970A booster kit to try and create a proof of concept for a school project. My group is trying to create a remote temperature monitor for an industrial coupling. The first step is proving that an NFC/RFID solution is feasible for this application. We have setup the for the temperature patch, MSP-EXP430FR4133, and TRF7970A working an monitoring temperature. The next step is trying to get a proof of concept with the rotation of the coupling. I guess the first question I have is if this technology is even possible for this kind of application? Secondly, some professors have talked to me about using a circular antenna around the shaft so that the patch is always within the RF field. Would this be feasible for NFC technology? The coupling spins relatively fast, around 1800 RPM on average, so that is the largest difficulty we are currently facing right now. Are there any other solutions that you recommend for our problem? I have added a picture of one of the coupling sizes that we are working on.
