The NiteOwl® Advantage Alert System is a multi-purpose electronic watchman for asphalt plants. The NiteOwl® System is designed to automatically call up to four phone numbers repeatedly until someone is alerted if the temperature of liquid asphalt or hot oil exceeds the pre-set high or low limits or when conditions are abnormal.
While liquid asphalt and hot oil monitoring is the most useful feature of the system, the NiteOwl® can also be programmed to call when confronted with a variety of upset conditions. For instance, if the power or a motor starter fails, if an intruder or smoke is detected, the system will alert the pre-set numbers. A prime benefit of the system is the remote accessibility of the NiteOwl® which allows an immediate update of plant conditions available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any location, using any telephone equipment. The system’s integrated microphone permits a caller to “listen in” for 10 seconds with each call to detect and monitor sounds or voices in the plant.
The system includes a rugged and reliable backup battery that automatically recharges and provides 20 hours of continuous operation should A.C. power fail. Other standard equipment includes a temperature probe in a stainless steel drywell placed directly into the hot oil circulating line to continuously monitor temperature levels. A surface mounted temperature sensor is also available.
The well designed, easy-to-use keyboard permits the plant operator to set various control ranges, including time, dial-out phone numbers, number of rings before an incoming call is answered, high and low-temperature alarm limits and identification numbers, among other programmable features. The basic system installation is as simple and fast as installing a home telephone answering machine. Contact us today for more information!
