The entire GraceSense™ Predictive Maintenance System encompasses a wide array of asset health monitoring smart devices utilizing IIoT and allows users to view real-time analytics through an intuitive web-based app. GraceSense™ was first introduced with the Hot Spot Monitor (HSM); a non-conductive temperature monitoring device that identifies potential hot spots in critical equipment and alerts users to abnormalities before they lead to unplanned shutdowns.
To compliment the HSM, GraceSense™ has incorporated field-proven IIoT smart devices capable of monitoring asset health and alerting personnel to potential abnormalities through the web-based Maintenance Hub that provides real-time dashboards, analytics, alert capabilities, and configuration. Among these predictive smart devices are the Vibration & Temperature Node and Panel-Mount CloudGate/Node.
Once deployed in a facility, advanced edge processing and rugged Zigbee compatible communication allows the Vibration & Temperature Node(s) to monitor vibration and temperature and insightfully predict health on rotating equipment. The Panel-Mount CloudGate/Node is easy to configure with a wide selection of inputs, transducers, radios, and power options. Configured as a CloudGate with LTE or WiFi, it can provide support to thousands of nodes, making architecture massively scalable.
All of these Predictive Maintenance solutions are designed specifically to protect and enable asset managers to remotely monitor equipment, increase productivity, and minimize downtime. The result is cost effective, high-end wireless sensing becoming a reality for all industrial applications.
Scheduling the right maintenance at the right time directly impacts productivity, too late and costly breakdowns occur. The integrity of internal bolted connections can be compromised when electrical equipment is subjected to vibrations, wide load fluctuations and high harmonics.
