Condition Monitoring Smart factories improve automation and efficiency compared to traditional factories. LoraWAN is one type of LPWAN wireless technology. Efficiency is increased both through process decisions being made without human intervention. Efficiency is also increased by using sensor data to monitor the condition of machinery, such as three-phase induction motors. Monitoring of induction motors, …
Preventive maintenance programmes are the key to reliable, long-life operation of electric motors.
Whilst AC Induction Motors are particularly reliable in service, almost all electrical equipment requires periodic planned inspection and maintenance
Things to Consider When Retrofitting the Internet of Things to Existing Industrial Equipment
The Internet of Things or IoT for short is already known to the public through innovative products, such as body-worn fitness monitors, that record and upload data to the internet.
In the industrial sectors, such as manufacturing, new systems are being developed to replace existing infrastructure, to improve efficiency.
However, what about perfectly good existing equipment that you, as a business, do not want to replace. The answer is to retrofit equipment, to make it ‘Smart’.
It is convenient to break down the IOT process in terms of:-
Therefore retrofitting the Internet of Things….tb continued
This is the first of our videos on retrofitting the Internet of Things to existing industries, such as factories, agriculture and cities.
Applying the Internet of Things (IOT) to Induction Motor Monitoring
Induction motors are found in all sorts of industries and applications, both on land and offshore.
