May 4, 2020 – The development of smart manufacturing relies on sensors, which acquire data, which automate the manufacturing process and thereby enable predictive maintenance. To meet the future needs of the industrial automation market in North America, Europe, Japan, and Southeast Asia, Advantech has collaborated with global semiconductor solutions provider Semtech to launch a LoRaWAN smart vibration sensor. WISE-2410 monitors surface temperatures of machines and autonomously calculates their vibration characteristics.
WISE-2410 is equipped with the ARM Cortex-M4 processor, which is used to transform original vibration data into spectral information via fourier transformation functions to calculate vibration values. Users can estimate the operational status of any motor-powered mechanical equipment such as pumps, air compressors, and fans by cross-comparison of RMS speeds and eigenvalues against ISO 10816-3 standards. Advantech also provides their WISE Studio utility whereby users can set operation parameters through a GUI, whether it’s reading reports, getting temperature values, vibration info, setting alarms etc., all can be done using the WISE Studio utility.
WISE-2410 LoRaWAN Smart Vibration Sensor can be used to monitor fixed or mobile devices and collect data 24/7. Operators can quickly view and understand the utilization rates of all devices to maximize their capacity. What’s more, through RMS, Peak, Kurtosis, and other vibration characteristic values, operating trends can be analyzed and equipment can be proactively tracked to discover the health and status of production lines and machines, preventing unwarned downtimes and learning root causes of problems in order to plan better preventive maintenance.
WISE-2410 supports plug and play. The product can withstand temperature ranges from -20 °C to 85 °C and has an IP-66 rating for dust and water ingress resistance. Even in harsh environments, collecting, calculating, and transmitting data is still unhindered. In terms of the power supply design, WISE-2410 uses a low-power consumption IC solution and is driven by two 3.6V AA lithium batteries. Under regular operating conditions (returning a packet of data every 15 minutes), the battery life can be as long as two years.
