June 22, 2020 - Yokogawa Corporation of America announced the release in North America of its Sushi Sensor, an OpreX Asset Management and Integrity wireless solution, with AI analytics via GA10 software for IIoT plant asset management (PAM) applications. The solution addresses a need for efficient and effective online collection of equipment data across industrial facilities via wireless sensors for early equipment anomaly detection. The Sushi Sensor combined with AI GA10 software detects early signs of abnormal operating characteristics and transforms a reactive maintenance process to one which is proactive, intelligent, and condition based. With a free smartphone app for set-up and configuration, users can rapidly place hundreds of Sushi Sensor devices into service across a facility.
The Sushi Sensor, with LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) communication technology and analytics from GA10 software, enables the digital transformation of rotating equipment asset management. Approved by testing and standards agency, FM Approvals, for operation in hazardous areas, the Sushi Sensor is a wireless device providing online vibration and surface temperature measurement in machines and process equipment. Via LoRaWAN, a low power, wide area network, the Sushi Sensor communicates digitized measurements to Yokogawa’s AI analytics environment.
