Condition monitoring of machines and plants, offers many industries considerable opportunities for production and quality assurance. More and more sensors are collecting critical operating data that can be used to keep machines and systems healthy for longer. The prerequisite, however, is that the sensor data quickly and reliably reach the point where a critical evaluation can be made and appropriate measures can be initiated.
In order to enable customers to implement this quickly, Schildknecht AG is pursuing the IoT-ready-to-use approach: a ready-to-use system for condition monitoring, such as power consumption, consisting of sensors, gateways and edge interface or cloud dashboard. The Energy Monitoring System is the further development of the Condition Monitoring System with Multisensor and is suitable for new and existing installations. It enables the monitoring of the power demand of machines, production areas, offices and also transformer stations.
The IoT ready-to-use systems such as the Energy Monitoring System are available with 3 different interface options. The cloud with a dashboard, integration into the PLC via a fieldbus interface or local IT integration with a dashboard.
