Wireless Vibration Sensor
The Machinery Health field is concerned with detecting changes in a machine’s temperature and vibration and using that information to predict problems well in advance of actual failure. Knowing that a critical piece of equipment is approaching failure is much preferable to having it fail unexpectedly.
Emerson Industrial Automation’s Machinery Health Management division developed a prototype for a wireless vibration sensor that brings industrial machine health monitoring to the cloud. The standalone compact sensor attaches to industrial equipment—a setup known as parasitic sensing—and transmits vibration data to sophisticated algorithms that alert plant personnel to impending trouble.
Emerson asked Porticos to perform an independent engineering design review. Given our extensive history as a trusted partner, we welcomed the opportunity to lend our expertise into product development.
