Organizations into heavy engineering, manufacturing and logistics requires sophisticated machineries and heavy cargo handling equipment to handle humanly impossible tasks. These machineries are all super expensive and are considered as capital-intensive assets. Optimum performance of these machineries determines the quality of 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 machineries and spares goes 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 results in production delays. This may have 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 maintenance. The real-time data that IOT devices bring on the condition, performance and location of assets, can help to reduce the responding time. A proactive maintenance will ensure maximum up time 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
Retrofit asset tracking system
The solution can be deployed on machineries and equipment without any alterations.
The ready-to-use IOT application is easy to configure and can be deployed within days.
Continuous Asset Monitoring
The tags/sensors used are highly autonomous enabling continuous data log. RFID based tags/sensors comes with up to 10 years of battery life.
Real- time Asset Monitoring
The remote asset tracking solution logs the data at 15-30 seconds time intervals enabling real-time asset monitoring.
The wireless tags/sensors can be configured for communication gateways using Zigbee, LoRa and Active RFID.
“Wireless (RFID tag) temperature sensing of a 33 KV high voltage transformer. Thrilled to see the performance and the immense opportunity it opens for condition monitoring of critical assets like transformers and electrical panels. Thank you.” — Balasubramaniam Somasundaram, Plant Engineering & Maintenance, ZF Windpower
