How Condition Monitoring Prevents Downtime:
The well-sourced report cites the Internet of Things as a continued driver of machine monitoring business opportunities, along with the resulting analysis of data gathered via predictive maintenance. The continued price plunge of secure, cloud-based storage is another key contributor.
Outlining the extensive market by segment, Research & Markets lists more than a hundred high-profile companies involved in predictive maintenance and condition monitoring. The study also details major trends and challenges affecting the industry.
Predictive Maintenance (PdM) solutions are increasingly being implemented in factories and plants worldwide to help reduce process downtime and to more efficiently conduct operations. These devices monitor machines and electrical equipment including engines, motors, boilers, and more, all with an eye toward ROI.
Maintaining Business-Critical Machinery:
As part of this projected growth, the report identifies the Machine industry as a significant area for OEM opportunity.
Plants and factories can help to decrease downtime hours (in the form of process delays and shutdowns) by sourcing a Machine Monitoring solution. These systems incorporate various sensor types (temperature, current, voltage etc.) to continually acquire machine data and compare it to user-set parameters such as normal operating temperatures, energy, power factor, etc.
Condition monitoring systems also update users on developing issues before they result in downtime. Communications options transfer data and alarm notifications to PCs or networks via WiFi, Ethernet, Serial, FTP, cellular modem, and more.
Meanwhile, using professional data acquisition software allows users to visualize data from many machines and locations at once, and also to analyze the data to identify faults before they can worsen.
