Predictive Maintenance in Manufacturing

Predictive Maintenance in Manufacturing First we want to define what we mean by “Predictive Maintenance”. In the manufacturing industry Predictive Maintenance is used to detect faults in production machines before they can cause catastrophic failure and bring down or bottleneck your entire line. Predictive Maintenance accomplishes this by constantly monitoring sensors connected to your machinery and reporting this to a database or a cloud based system. Predictive Maintenance has proven to have a high ROI based on increased up time, the ability to plan downtime, and the increased efficiency of maintenance operations. It is a key component in the Industry

How To Measure Machine uptime using IoT Sensor

How to Leverage IoT Sensors to Monitor Machine Uptime & Productivity Measuring Machine Uptime To measure productivity on the factory floor, one needs to first understand how to measure machine uptime. Machine uptime can be calculated by taking the total number of minutes that the machine is operational and producing the goods. This calculation can be done using an IoT sensor. By placing an IoT sensor on the machine, one can track when the machine is operational and idle. This information can then be used to calculate the machine uptime. The data collected by the IoT sensor can also be

How To Bring 4-20mA Loop Powered Sensors to the IoT World

4-20mA Sensors and IoT 4-20mA is one of the oldest and most used wired communication protocols out there. These types of sensors are easy to use, easy to set up, reliable, and noise immune. Almost every manufacturing facility will have numerous sensors that output a 4-20mA signal. Generally, these sensors connect to a PLC and from there users have to jump through a few hoops in order to take it to the cloud. There are two ways users can push data to the cloud: Install new sensors which can connect to the cloud directly Retrofit old sensors with IoT technology Types
