Sensata’s new solution actively monitors rotary assets for faults using a multi-modal sensor and AI-driven analysis capabilities from Nanoprecise through the Sensata IQ platform.
Nanoprecise’s AI technology expands Sensata IQ asset monitoring platform capabilities to prevent failures and increase productivity of rotary assets
Simple to configure and install, the new wireless industrial IoT sensor allows plant managers to detect early-stage faults and extend the working life of their rotary machine assets.
Sensata Technologies has launched a new asset monitoring solution that enables predictive maintenance for rotary assets and delivers actionable insights to plant managers.
Unplanned downtime related to motors, pumps, and other rotating assets costs plants millions of dollars in production every year. But existing solutions do not provide the real-time insights plant managers need to truly monitor their assets.
The new wireless 6VW series IoT sensor delivers insights via the Sensata IQ platform and can simultaneously monitor each asset using six sensing modalities – vibration, temperature, acoustic emission, speed, humidity, and magnetic flux. The sensors are designed for easy retrofit into a wide range of existing rotary assets – such as motors, pumps, blowers, fans, or compressors – regardless of brand or manufacturer with no changes needed to the company’s hardware or control platforms. The 6VW sensor series is an easy-to-use, self-install solution with a mobile app for device configuration, making setup and installation possible in less than five minutes.
Using powerful AI-driven algorithms explicitly designed for rotary assets by Nanoprecise, a Sensata technology partner, data from the sensor is analyzed at the edge for anomalies and then pushed to the Sensata IQ cloud-based platform for further analysis and data visualization.
The Sensata IQ platform uses the data to identify potential faults, calculate the asset’s projected remaining useful life and deliver alerts to plant managers on their laptops, tablets, or smartphones. The deep predictive maintenance analysis capabilities help plant managers rely less on manual walkarounds and better understand the health of their assets.
Sensata is collaborating with technology companies such as Nanoprecise to develop comprehensive solutions for assets that are rarely monitored due to cost and complexity. Adding Nanoprecise’s technology to the Sensata IQ platform enables maintenance teams to make confident decisions and simplify maintenance programs across rotary assets with data that can be trusted and accessed anywhere, anytime.
