High-performance IoT Sensor Recognized for Engineering Excellence
SALT LAKE CITY – Nov. 12, 2019 – Monnit Corporation’s Advanced Vibration Meter (AVM) won the bronze medal in Design World’s LEAP Awards for the “Switches & Sensors” category.
“The LEAP Awards recognize engineering excellence and celebrate innovations that increase industrial safety and efficiency,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “This prestigious recognition validates the ingenuity and effort that our engineers and US production staff contributed to making the AVM best-of-breed.”
Bronze Award: Switches & Sensors
Versatility was crucial in helping the Advanced Vibration Meter (AVM) claim the bronze in the LEAP Awards’ Switches & Sensors category. As the Check Engine Light™ for machinery, the AVM boasts a configurable frequency measurement range that spans from 0.4 Hz–4,800 Hz (24 RPM–288,000 RPM). The US-made AVM uses an accelerometer to report on vibration acceleration, velocity, displacement, or acceleration peak, frequency (Hz/RPM), and crest factor on all three axes. AVM also reports duty cycle and temperature.
Beyond remotely monitoring high-RPM machinery, the AVM has a broad application range. Logistics firms use it to measure a ship’s impact when it strikes a dock, and civil engineers use it to monitor seismic impact on buildings or the subtle sway of bridges. Data provided by the sensor enables businesses to take preemptive action to service assets while gaining a deeper insight into operational and end-of-life analysis.
A Standard Bearer
A flagship of Monnit’s ALTA Platform, the AVM’s range, capabilities and battery life helped distinguished it from competing devices. The ALTA platform has 3–4 times the range of standard sensors, extending non-line-of-sight reach to 1,200+ feet through walls (approximately 12–14 walls). Using the Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) method, all ALTA sensors offer greater interference immunity from other wireless devices. Superior power management provides ALTA sensors with up to 12+ years of battery life.
About the LEAP Awards
In its second year, the LEAP Awards recognizes superior components and services across the mechanical and electrical engineering design space. An independent panel of engineering professionals selects gold, silver, and bronze medalists in 13 categories ranging from additive manufacturing to test & measurement. Products are evaluated on a broad range of criteria, including product purpose, application scope, problems solved, the design process, and customer Beta testing.
The LEAP Awards are supported by Design World, Fluid Power World, and EE World—all of which are leading publications in the design engineering space.
