ifm - Leaders in automation technology.
Condition monitoring – A new way of doing things.
Machine vibration and surface temperature are typical examples of condition data that can be collected from rotating equipment, including AC induction motors, pumps, compressors, conveyors, blowers, fans, and more. Changes in temperature or vibration patterns can be indicative of arising faults, or a need for maintenance.
Wireless sensors- The key to scalability.
This gives rise to the need for wireless sensors for condition monitoring. Wireless battery-operated sensor is easy and much more cost-efficient to deploy than the wired one. Their cost can be up to 4x less expensive per measurement point and even 15x faster to deploy than a wired sensor.
Mature ready-to-go products.
“Treon impressed us with their mature ready-to-go products that fit well into our portfolio”, says Dr. Thomas May, Member of the Board at ifm group. “Wireless vibration monitoring is a strong emerging trend in the condition monitoring market. Without any wiring needed, wireless battery-operated sensors offer quick cost-efficient integration and easy access to hard-to-reach locations”.
A comprehensive plant monitoring system.
“We’re humbled to work together with ifm, one of the most respected companies in the sensor and automation industry. This speaks highly to the versatility of Treon Industrial Node and Treon Gateway platform”, says Joni Korppi, CEO of Treon. “Our products enable a perfect cost-efficient solution for the large number of in-directly critical machines in a plant that may not be monitored at all today”.
With the completely wireless sensors and intuitive ifm software for analyzing and visualizing the data, a comprehensive plant monitoring system is quickly set up without any extra work.
“Sensor installation can be done in minutes. Devices need only to be turned on and data starts flowing via the Gateway. The benefits can be huge”
