Optimizing the manufacturing industry with the new Vibration Monitoring LoRaWAN® IoT Solution for Predictive Maintenance

Actility, world leader in LPWAN connectivity solutions,  NKE Watteco, leader in radio transmitters manufacturing and WMW, online data colleting platform, have teamed up to help manufacturers anticipate defects in industrial equipment through their new Vibration Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance IoT Solution, now available on ThingPark Market IoT Solutions.This solution aimed to manufacturers, enables industrial end customers to increase performance safety and decrease machine shutdowns and work accidents by combining WMW’s application together with NKE Watteco’s sensors and Actility’s ThingPark-powered LoRaWAN infrastructure. The solution improves reliability, performance and safety of industrial machinery while anticipating outages and mitigating anomalies more efficiently.Simple to install, this wireless device collects and analyzes real time data regarding current health of the assets. The collected data is compared with normal behavioral threshold values to detect or predict malfunctions. The solution also gives global insights by allowing management from one single application dashboard.The Vibration Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance Solution is a machine agnostic solution, meaning that it can monitor any type of vibrating machines and allows smooth retrofit of legacy machinery. The solution is also low power as it leverages LoRaWAN technology, optimizes assets energy consumption and reduces the solution’s TCO. The Vibration Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance is also AI-based by offering a powerful artificial intelligence IoT sensor, retrofitted with the industrial assets to constantly monitor their conditions.



Three joint forces The solution is created from an WMW application, the Bob Assistant by NKE Watteco and Actility’s ThingPark Enterprise.Firstly, the solution includes WMW’s application which acts as an end-to-end central control unit for managing the plant operations. Data is continuously ingested and analyzed to provide relevant reports and alerts, making sure to drive your maintenance operations based on data.The solution also integrates the NKE Watteco’s Bob Assistant. This is a powerful artificial Intelligence IoT sensor, retrofitted with the industrial assets to constantly monitor their conditions. It is a simple to install wireless device which collects and analyzes real time data (vibration, temperature) to assess current health of the assets. The collected data is compared with normal behavioral threshold values to detect or predict malfunctions thanks to the Bob assistance AI engine.Thirdly, the solution counts on Actility’s ThingPark Enterprise to provide its LoRaWAN connectivity infrastructure. ThingPark Enterprise is the leading LoRaWAN private networking solution that streamlines the digitalization of business processes by connecting assets with efficiency. Through the deployment of ThingPark Enterprise, companies benefit from a dependable, secure and scalable private LoRaWAN connectivity infrastructure which enables a wide variety of IoT use cases such as indoor/outdoor asset tracking, while ensuring the power-efficiency needed to ensure solutions ROI. ThingPark Enterprise streamlines IoT network operations, providing enterprises with a proficient UX to easily build a multi-gateway LoRaWAN network and feed data to IoT applications.
