 Abstract
An electric heat tracing system manages the temperature of pipes used in a plant. We propose a Zigbee-based wireless system so called the TESCON(: TEmperature Sensing and CONtrol) to monitor and control the electric heat tracing system in an integrated way. Simulations have been done to analyze the performance of the TESCON system. The performance of the TESCON system is validated by obtaining similar results via testbed operation. We also suggest an extension method of the TESCON system based on the hierarchical tree topology by adopting techniques such as network partition, channel reuse and frame aggregation.
