Prevent revenue loss from machine failure
Minimize the risk of costly downtime with Define IloT solutions
Unexpected machinery failure is expensive. It results in unplanned downtime and can cause secondary failures to other machine components, which can create Health & Safety and Environmental risks.
Machine condition monitoring combines advanced hardware, intelligent software, and trusted service and support – providing a broad, connected view of your operations. Together, they enable you to mitigate risk, boost safety, and reduce maintenance costs, while improving equipment reliability, uptime, and efficiency.
- Hardware monitoring systems and sensors protect your equipment and collect rich condition monitoring and diagnostic data for analysis.
- Condition monitoring and diagnostics software connects real-time and historical data from production equipment to help you anticipate failure before it occurs.
- With scalable deployment and ongoing support, you can ensure that you’re maximizing the value of your condition monitoring program.
A more sophisticated way to monitor the health of your equipment
Vibration Monitoring Case Study
An ABAC screw compressor in a manufacturing plant supplies compressed air to equipment on the factory floor. Continous air flow is essential to production, and without it production will cease, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in lost revenue from downtime.
Using Define’s IIoT connected products solutions, sensors are placed in the compressor to measure the vibration on the thrust bearings and the bearing temperature. The sensors are wired to a Cloud Edge Connector and data is transmitted to the Cloud.
From this data a profile of a healthy compressor can be established. With Define’s IIoT dashboard, technical staff can easily see the condition of the compressor at any time, studying the data for trends, history and alarm status.
As time passes, any changes in the vibration signature or temperature in the compressor serve as an early warning flag, way ahead of equipment failure. Additionally, when connected to ERP software, replacement parts can be automatically ordered and delivered before the issue becomes critical, ensuring continous production.
