The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing in popularity. More and more industries are adopting IoT technology such as sensors and other connected devices to collect data, monitor processes, and optimize operations.
In the manufacturing sector, IoT is playing an increasingly important role with devices such as wireless vibration sensors being used to revolutionize the traditional practices. Companies are using these sensors to monitor production processes, detect potential issues, and streamline operations. In the factories of tomorrow, manufacturers need cheap but accurate solutions that can help track assets & optimize maintenance schedules, and wireless vibration sensors do this job pretty well.
A wireless vibration sensor is an IoT hardware that detects vibrations. When used in manufacturing plants, these sensors can detect vibration of the machines to determine how efficiently they are running, if they are experiencing issues, and to obtain other key operational data.
For example, wireless vibration sensors can be used to monitor the health of rotating machinery, allowing companies track the operational status of their machines. They can even track the machines’ operational data for predictive maintenance. These sensors measure the vibrations produced by machines, processes, or other activities, which are then converted into electrical signals that can be read by analytics software.
They can capture the vibration data from any component without the need for any human interference.
This means that maintenance and reliability professionals can shift their focus from manual and repetitive tasks like data collection, to activities that add value, thereby optimizing time and resources.
These sensors offer highly accurate readings and can be employed in remote and hard-to-reach places, thereby improving the safety of the condition monitoring engineers & technicians. The sensor can also be easily installed on a wide range of components that are moving around, independent of their size or shape. For example, the sensor can be placed on floor pumps to automate its monitoring process and send out alerts if something goes wrong with them.
Modern wireless vibration sensors consist of accelerometers that can send 4 vibration channels in real-time for X, Y and Z axes as well as an additional reference channel for phase comparison.
The wireless vibration sensor system is made up of a number of different units that are connected to each other as well as to the machinery.
These sensors have the ability to pick up on the vibration up to a higher level than those found in the incumbent systems, gateways and an analytics platform.
They then send texts or emails notifications, letting the maintenance staff know when something is not right. A wide array of monitoring software comes with the system, allowing all users to easily access information related to their overall operational efficiency.
Since the wireless vibration sensor can be set up anywhere, anytime, it transforms the entire condition monitoring process of your machines. This makes it easier for maintenance personnel to gain a better understanding of their machine’s performance as a whole and what they need to do in order to keep them in top notch condition. Maintenance teams no longer need to constantly check on their machines manually, or spend hours putting together reports for the field staff to take action. Using the wireless vibration sensor system helps to make sure that reliability technicians and managers never miss any important issue.
