Heinzmann Launched NOx Data Logger
By Jack Burke03 September 2020
Heinzmann launched a data logger for the monitoring of exhaust gas emissions, together with CPK Automotive, both members of the Heinzmann Group.
The device, called NOx Control Box, monitors emissions according to the requirements of the German Federal ordinance 44th BImSchV for medium-sized combustion plants and internal combustion engines.
According to Heinzmann though, it also offers additional functionalities that other data loggers available on the market do not feature, as for example the monitoring of the efficiency of oxidation catalysts. Additional measurements and data which are not required by the German ordinance, are saved in a separate archive.
The data logger can be used with any type of internal combustion engine and retrofitted with minimum effort in existing installations. The signal from an existing NOx sensor after the SCR system can also be used thus avoiding the need for an additional sensor.
Open in- and out- channels allow the connection of the NOx data logger to the existing machine’s control box; a CAN or analog communication with control systems is available as an option.
Collected data can be visualized and evaluated through Heinzmann’s versatile Terminal NOx software.
Heinzmann and CPK Automotive market the NOx Control Box together (Heinzmann under the brand name NOx Secure). CPK Automotive is concentrated on service companies, utilities and final customers, while Heinzmann serves engine manufacturers and cogeneration plants.
