Io T Sensors Simplify Maintenance Decisions
Two cloud-managed sensor solutions, Meraki MT and Industrial AssetVision, help businesses simplify asset and facility monitoring across theirorganizations, from indoor IT closets to outdoor OT spaces at scale.
Remote monitoring using Io T sensors offers a list of benefits to helpimprove efficiencies including employee safety by preventing unnecessary site visits and equipment checks, reducing network outages anddowntime, and reducing costs for premature equipment failure.
Meraki MT sensors monitor indoor environments and IT infrastructure. Three models of cloud-managed devices—MT10, MT12, and MT20—provide real-time data on indoor temperature, humidity, water leaks,and property/room access.
Industrial Asset Vision sensors monitor OT assets and facilities inoutdoor and industrial indoor spaces. Bundled in a cloud-based management dashboard that fosters actionable visibility from the sensorsto the network, the IP65 and IP67 rated sensors are pre-integrated withCisco LoRa WAN Io T Gateway and provide insight for equipment and facility temperature, humidity, vibration monitoring, and lighting levels.
Smart Solution ModernizesFactory Operations
Factory Digitization, a solution builton the ServiceNow Now Platform, enablesmanufacturers to improve production efficiencies with mobile workflows that allow operators to manage tasks and consume knowledgeon the shop floor.
The platform, which easily integrates withany existing factory technology systems,supports five key manufacturing processeswithin its mobile task management interface:Autonomous Maintenance; Planned/Preven-tative Maintenance; Safety, Health & Environment (SHE) policy adherence; KnowledgeManagement; and Continuous Improvement.
It combines the company’s consultancy services for manufacturing business process optimization with the capabilities of 4Industry—adigital manufacturing operating system aimedat increasing Operational Equipment Effectiveness—and the ServiceNow Now Platform, providing organizations with the tools they needto take advantage of all that Industry 4.0 hasto offer.
Condition Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance
NORD’s Condition Monitoring solution helps maintain machines and plants proactively as a preventativemeasure to reduce downtimes and increase overall efficiency. It provides real or near-real-time drive and statusdata which is recorded periodically or continuously to optimize operational safety. This data is stored on a localindustrial PC where you can have the drive information transferred and summarized on a remote dashboard.
• Detection and avoidance of impermissible operating states at an early stage• Status-oriented maintenance instead of time-based maintenance• Scheduled machinery and plant downtimes based on real drive and process data• Reduction of service and material costs• Longer service life of components and machinery• Predictable and cost-optimized repairs
Enabling robot users to create a preventive maintenance schedule for individual or robot fleets, ABB’sCondition-Based Maintainance (CBM) tool optimizes productivity and minimizes downtime. CBM usesreal-time data on robot operations to help identify any potential issues that could affect performance,including duty, speed, acceleration, and gearbox wear. These variables are compared against other robotsin ABB’s worldwide robot database to calculate the likelihood and timeframe of a potential fault or failure.
The tool can advise whether remedial action is required, involving either repair or replacement ofaffected parts. By identifying which parts are likely to fail and when, spare parts can be purchased andprepared without having to hold them in stock, helping users to plan their budgets and ensure thatresources are available to carry out the work when required.
