Life Cycle Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

Are you monitoring your machinery for predictive maintenance? Do you know how often your machinery is running and if it is running within its correct specifications? Deviations from specified parameters in vibration or temperature, if left unchecked, can cause expensive repairs and downtime.

Machines such as motors, pumps, compressors and boilers, when run frequently, have the potential for worn out parts which can cause failures to occur. The main value of life cycle monitoring and predictive maintenance is to allow convenient scheduling of corrective maintenance, and to prevent unexpected equipment failures. The key is “the right information at the right time”. By monitoring equipment parameters, you can understand how your equipment is running, and plan for maintenance accordingly, avoiding unplanned downtime.

Using Monnit WIT Wireless Sensors for conditional monitoring allows maintenance to be scheduled, or other actions to be taken to avoid the consequences of failure, before the failure occurs. We recommend using Monnit’s affordable wireless temperature sensors, activity sensors, accelerometers and pressure sensors to monitor the different parameters of your machinery. There are no wires to worry about, and the setup process is amazingly simple.
