Abstract
ELECTRONIC DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATES, INC., EDA, ESTABLISHED IN 1982, WITH 25 YEARS OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE, NOTEWORTHY CONSULTANTS AND A FULLY EQUIPPED FACILITY, HAS FORMULATED A UNIQUE APPROACH FOR A RELIABLE COOLING TOWER ICE DETECTION SYSTEM. THE EDA APPROACH SHALL UTILIZE A VERY SIMPLE YET INNOVATIVE AND RELIABLE METHOD OF ICE DETECTION TAILORED FOR DETERMINING THE PRESENCE OF ICE FORMATION ON A WATER COOLING TOWER. THE EDA DETECTOR CAN BE PACKAGED IN A SMALL CONTAINER AND IS UNAFFECTED BY A WET ENVIRONMENT. COMBINING THE EDA ICE DETECTOR WITH A LIGHTNING RESISTANT DATA TRANSMISSION LINK AND A MULTICHANNEL DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM RESULTS IN A COMPLETE ICE DETECTION AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. THE EDA ICE DETECTOR IS NOW POSSIBLE THROUGH RECENT ADVANCES IN COMPONENT TECHNOLOGY. EDA PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THIS CONCEPT BY DESIGNING AND BUILDING AN OPTIMIZED DETECTOR AND DATA LINK BREADBOARD THEN TESTING AND DEMONSTRATING THEIR PERFORMANCE.
