Wireless Condition Monitoring to Be a Key Opportunity for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi


The monitoring of vast and varied industrial assets across the factory floor, warehouses, or logistics operations is becoming increasingly vital in ensuring and increasing a facility’s efficiency, reliability, safety, and productivity. Traditionally, this process has been completed manually, with maintenance staff collecting data via portable data collectors/Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) for subsequent analysis. However, in an increasingly competitive landscape, factory owners must turn to new technologies to accelerate this development and continue to increase performance, and the focus is increasingly shifting toward monitoring assets that have previously never been monitored in order to drive new efficiencies. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi sensors that monitor a number of variables, including temperature, vibration, pressure, flow, and sound, in addition to others, can be deployed where wired connectivity solutions are too costly, time consuming, complicated, or hazardous to be deployed. They can allow for a whole new range and scale of previ…
