Organizations into heavy engineering, manufacturing, and logistics require sophisticated machinery and heavy cargo handling equipment to handle humanly impossible tasks. These machinery are all super expensive and are considered as capital-intensive assets. Optimum performance of these high value equipment determines the quality of the product produced and services delivered. So, it is crucial to have these assets regularly monitored and well maintained.
Most of the time accidents, abuse, and theft of machinery and spares go unrecorded. Even though few cases get noticed, the damages caused are under assessed resulting in improper maintenance, shortage of spare and untimely insurance claims. It causes unexpected break downs which result in production delays. This may have a huge effect on the revenue and on the reputation of the company. As the expectations of customers are higher, failures are becoming intolerable and high priority is given for timely and quality delivery.
IOT enabled remote diagnostics system can provide the amount of visibility required for proper asset tracking. The real-time data that IOT devices bring on the condition, performance and location of assets, can help to reduce the responding time. Proactive maintenance will ensure maximum uptime of critical assets. The insights can also be used to evaluate the vendors and to negotiate the Annual Maintenance Contracts (AMC).
Ripples IOT Asset Tracking System enables remote and continuous monitoring of high value assets. The solution employs smart devices for data acquisition and IOT platforms for presenting the data. The benefits of the solution are
Asset tracking sensors & indoor positioning
The solution can be deployed on machinery and equipment without any alterations.
