IOT Sensor Use Cases
Discover all the ways you can use MaintMaster’s IoT Sensors to improve your condition-based maintenance.
OUR IOT SENSORS WILL DETECT
Out of the box, our IoT Sensors will measure four things: Air pressure, temperature, vibrations and humidity. And, of course, battery status.
All are visibly in your familiar interface of MaintMaster.
Detect deviations before breakdowns occur
Did you calculate how much a production stop costs you per minute, wouldn’t it be incredible if you could predict and prevent a few of these? No matter how good your preventive maintenance is, there will always be breakdowns that occur unexpectedly. With MaintMaster IoT Sensors, you will be able to predict some of them for optimal reliability.
Easy to set up
Our IoT sensors are designed in a way that they can be set up in a very short time. They are powered with batteries and communicate wirelessly. This makes it easy, fast and cost-effective to set up sensors in large amounts. Plug and play
Integrates with your other systems
Our sensors feed data directly into MaintMaster. This means you configure all the variables and actions directly from a familiar user interface – From MaintMaster. There is no need for consultants and programmers, if you are familiar with MaintMaster, you will be able to integrate sensor data!
Collecting data is easy, but drawing useful conclusions for a more reliable production is the tricky part. The MaintMaster CMMS software is designed to do just that. MaintMaster automatically creates work orders and other maintenance activities based on sensor data as well as all the graphs and diagrams that you need to present and monitor your activities.
The aim of our sensors is to create alerts and maintenance jobs based on certain limiting values. We have taken the time to predefine a broad set of limiting value suggestions and detections of changing trends that can be configured inside of MaintMaster. Setting up the triggers requires no programming skills. You can do it on your own.
Our Sensors are priced at a point that makes it possible for you to monitor all your equipment. You will not have to make a choice between critical and non-critical machines. Just measure everything to ensure more reliable production.
WHEN SHOULD I INSTALL IOT SENSORS?
Our IoT sensors have many applications. You can use them to measure vibrations, air pressure, temperature and humidity. That means that there are many machines that can be monitored with MaintMaster IoT sensors.
Getting the data from the sensors and creating tasks from sensor data offers can create a huge benefit to your maintenance department. The most significant value, however, is created in one of the following scenarios.
When inspection requires the production to halt
Some inspections are only possible during a production stop but in many cases, some crucial components of a machine can be monitored with sensors while the production is at full capacity.
When deviations are invisible to human senses
Some deviations can only be observed with the right equipment. Take vibrations for instance: Our vibration sensors can provide reliable data and reliable comparisons over a long period of time.
When the object is hard to access
Some objects are located in far places that are hard to reach. If the procedure to reach them requires dismantling of objects or climbing into high places our sensors can save extensive amounts of work.
When the inspection is a health or safety risk
Some objects are located in places where extensive health and safety equipment is necessary for safe access. Installing sensors instead of having your maintenance personnel inspect dangerous objects has a promising potential to increase workplace safety.
Use case: Food temperature control
Perfect food management with steady temperatures
Avoid spoilt food or expensive machine breakdown with accurate, real-time temperature monitoring of all your critical equipment. Get automatic notifications and work orders assigned to the right expert when a deviation is detected.
HOT OR COLD? PERFECT.
Maintaining temperatures is vital for many manufacturers handling sensitive foods that need unbroken cold chains from production to distribution. Take the temperature with IoT sensors before deviations indicate incoming breakdowns.
And monitor temperature and more data even in extreme temperatures. Get real-time insights and see historical trends to make temperature control easier – with automatic work order creation in your Maintenance Software.
READY TO TAKE THE TEMPERATURE?
Maintain safe food storage temperatures
Set your desired temperature range and receive instant alerts if temperatures deviate, helping you to prevent potential food spoilage and contamination before it becomes a problem.
Food temperature monitoring from everywhere
Say goodbye to manual inspections and have real-time temperature information from anywhere, at any time, ensuring the freshness and safety of your food.
Let sensors create work orders
Say goodbye to manual work order creation. When a sensor detects a temperature deviation, it automatically creates and assigns work orders to your chosen person or team.
See trending temperatures
Improve your preventive maintenance monitoring with historical equipment data and trending insights on temperatures, vibrations, relative humidity, and air pressure.
Use case: Hard-to-reach places
Monitor your dangerous and unreachable assets risk-free
Monitor equipment in hard-to-reach or hazardous places without losing valuable production time or risking your or your team’s safety.
DISCOVER SENSORS THAT LOVE A CHALLENGE.
Most premises have equipment in isolated or even dangerous places. Plug-and-play sensors allow you to monitor your equipment without risking the safety of your technicians. Rip the tape, place the sensor once and monitor all your hard-to-reach equipment.
Forget dismantling machines or looking for ladders. Get real-time insights and see historical trends to make proactive maintenance easier – with automatic work order creation when the sensors find deviations. Inspect with a click in MaintMaster CMMS.
