MICROCOMPUTERIZED SYSTEM TO ASSESS THE PERFORMANCE OF INFANT INCUBATORS

Mário Anderson de Oliveira, Maurício Campelo Tavares, Raimes Moraes

Abstract

This work presents a system based on a microcomputer to assess the performance of infant incubators in a semi-automatic manner. It carries out the tests described by the section 8 of the NBR IEC 601- 2-19 (1999). The developed electronic circuit acquires data from the sensors using a microcontroller. A set of sensors are used: five for temperature, one for humidity and one for air flow. The sampled data is sent to the PC via Bluetooth. The software running on the PC manages the data sampling, as well as guides the user through the test procedure by means of messages and sound alerts at the end of each stage. The sampled data is shown on the screen and also stored in a database that can be remotely accessed. The results are presented on a graph where the measurements (temperature, humidity and air flow) performed during the whole test can be seen. The procedure to calibrate the sensors and an infant incubator assessment carried out with the developed system is presented.
