New IoT device for point machine monitoring

SMART MOTORS DEVELOPS AND ADDS A NEW IOT DEVICE TO ITS RANGE OF POINT MACHINE MONITORING SOLUTIONS: THE DAEN IOT DEVICE.

The solution is modular and compact, collects electrical data continuously and communicates wirelessly and securely directly with the DAVANA platform, which makes installation much easier as it does not require access to the operator’s network.

The collected data such as current, voltage, waveform, RMS current, operating times and power among others are displayed in graphs, generating alarms and warnings to prevent and predict possible failures. DAVANA offers maintenance tools that with FFT analysis, RMS comparison and other statistical analysis tools provide extra resources to identify pathologies.

The monitoring device is adaptable to different point machine models and also offers remote programming and configuration. Installation is simple and hot-swappable, without the need for service stoppage. DAEN IoT complies with safety standards and CE regulations and respects, in its application, electrical, electromagnetic, vibration and environmental safety standards.

Switches are very sensitive elements when it comes to the correct operation of the network. As they are complex elements combining electrical and mechanical systems, it is practically impossible to ensure their good performance without continuous supervision. Performing corrective maintenance in service requires shutting down the line, with the enormous consequences that this entails.

For this reason, smart motors® has designed different equipment with different levels of investment to collect data at a different level and to meet different performance or budget requirements. Specifically, the DAEN IoT is capable of predicting 45% of failures and guiding 55% of corrective tasks. This solution ease the point machine’s maintenance and consequently increases network availability by improving service.
