Recently on a new site, have seen some strange studs on a few pumps and was wondering does anyone know what they are?

Previously DLI contractor was on site but now we have got the work and fitted some of our own, this other one is a mystery though only seen them on some pumps and they look like watch batteries on the first impression. I have attached an image.

Seen these in the security industry placed on doors and other means of access to a facility. Security guard taps it with his "logger" to prove the access was checked.
Maybe your facility's management is using the concept for ops or maintenance walkaround checks?

Edit
Just wondering why you went to the expense of putting your own targets on when there was already one there from DLI?

Thanks, Nok, something like that.

As for Studs, they were there from 7-8 years ago when we had the site, DLI guy was formerly with us, took the job..then we took it back ....;-)

Recent holiday - too brief, only 8 days - in Malaysia Lankawi - and the resort security guards were swiping similar "buttons" along their daily routes.... presumably to monitor whether they actually ran those routes. IoT..... rgds

Yeah strangely they were only on the motors and pumps in water treatment plant of power station so maybe they were part of a water sampling program or something,

Mark,

It's got an internet address on it.  Did you try that?

I can't make out the printing but it has a very similar arrangement to the touch memory button used on the Guard1 plus system.

See https://www.guard1.com/Hardware/Touch-Memory-Buttons.aspx

Looks like that's what they are alright, just curious to they're use in context of power station and as I said only on water treatment area, some are on motor bell ends and others even on motor electrical junction boxes.
Thanks John and Danny.

These are temperature loggers. Engineering will walk around every so often and tap their logger against it to download the temp trends.

I know that DLI used to use bar codes to get their data collectors to the right measurement point. I wonder if these are a newer version of that?

Thanks for all the responses guys. lots of interesting possibilities. I've seen a low cost vibration analyser lately and has rfid tags hanging on machine and apparently the last set of readings is stored on them when you finish the data collection. Scan the tag take readings last instruction on asset is to scan again then move onto next machine.
