Vibration Analysis for Predictive Maintenance and Condition Monitoring

The vibration analysis and condition monitoring solution from Radio Bridge provides advanced predictive maintenance capabilities for rotating machines and other equipment. Continuous 24/7 monitoring of your assets will detect early signs of wear and warn you before a failure occurs, saving you downtime and expensive repairs.

APPLICABLE TO:

  • Motors
  • Gearboxes
  • Pumps
  • Fans
  • Compressors
  • Other equipment

TYPES OF FAILURES DETECTED

  • Bearing faults
  • Misalignment
  • Lubrication problems
  • Imbalances
  • Gear mesh defects
  • And more

HOW IT WORKS

Vibration monitoring starts at the source — your vibration sensors. These Internet of Things (IoT) devices begin the process by collecting data and sending it to Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) gateways located on-site with the sensors. These gateways relay the data to the Radio Bridge Console located in the cloud, and you receive an immediate notification if a maintenance issue has been detected.

ADVANCED DATA ANALYSIS

The Radio Bridge Console provides advanced data analysis capabilities for the vibration sensors and allows for additional predictive condition monitoring. With our IoT monitoring solutions, you can analyze vibration speed and g-force data over time, set up threshold alerts, and more.

Features:

  • 10Hz to 10kHz bandwidth
  • Low frequency analysis (<1kHz) according to ISO standards
  • High-speed ultrasonic analysis (1KHz – 10kHz) using proprietary technology
  • Battery powered with 2+ years of battery life depending on usage
  • LoRaWAN wireless technology
  • Easy to install stud mounting

Our Vibration Monitoring and Analysis Solutions

IoT devices such as vibration sensors are becoming increasingly prominent, providing a way for companies to detect system malfunctions in industrial environments before they become major problems. With IoT vibration monitoring solutions, you can tackle potential system issues at the source with detailed analyses and predictive maintenance advice, helping you save time and money on the job site.

At Radio Bridge, we design and manufacture state-of-the-art LoRaWAN devices that set the standard for long range and battery life. With solutions using our wireless vibration monitoring tools, you can ensure your systems are functional and secure at all times.

What Is IoT Vibration Monitoring?

All machines and mechanical systems have a specific vibration signature. These vibrations operate within a sustainable threshold of amplitude, frequency and intensity when functioning properly. However, irregular vibrations that occur outside of this acceptable range may indicate a device malfunction that could lead to a mechanical breakdown. Vibration sensors allow users to detect and prevent these breakdowns from occurring.

IoT vibration monitors screen and analyze device vibration and give insights into system health. Like all wireless sensors, vibration sensors gather sensory data from their surroundings and check for signs of irregular stimuli. These IoT devices specifically recognize abnormal vibration signatures that indicate potential equipment failure.

Advantages of LoRaWAN Technology for Vibration Monitoring

LoRaWAN specifications offer many functional benefits for wireless monitoring solutions. LoRaWAN is a network specification used on top of the underlying LoRa (Long Range) technology. LoRa is a standard best used for wireless devices that require a broad range and longer battery life. This modulation scheme is known for transmitting across noisy environments and long distances.

A local LoRaWAN gateway will relay messages to a network server in the cloud that handles the encryption and authentication of the messages. The messages are then passed from the LoRaWAN network server to the end application, in this case the Radio Bridge Console.

Some of the many advantages of utilizing LoRaWAN technology for vibration analysis include:

  • Wide coverage range
  • Lower connectivity cost
  • Prolonged battery life
  • Easy deployment
  • No licensing costs
