Plant Reliability specialist AVT Reliability® has enhanced its Machine Sentry® suite of cloud-based condition monitoring tools with the launch of its long range, low energy Bluetooth® router, Gateway.
Easy to install and simple to use, Machine Sentry® Gateway removes the need for manual data collection from MSF-1 sensors. This improves workforce safety and frees up valuable time for operatives on the plant floor.
It can connect up to 100 vibration sensors to the internet via the ethernet, Wi-Fi or 3G/4G cellular network, and extends Bluetooth® connectivity up to 50m (160 ft). An IP65 rating makes it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Frederic Thomas, Managing Director at AVT Reliability®, said: “Machine Sentry® Gateway is the most user-friendly online condition monitoring system on the market today.
“Power over ethernet means set-up is flexible and it can be easily deployed, and scaled up if required, anywhere on a plant.
“The Machine Sentry® platform allows data to be stored securely in the cloud, where it can be managed by authorised personnel on one easy-to-use interface, from any location, using a standard web browser. Vibration data collected from Machine Sentry® sensors is then analysed by ADA™ the Automated Diagnostic Assistant. ”
He added: “AVT Reliability® strives to stay one step ahead in digital condition monitoring approaches. We believe Machine Sentry® Gateway seals our reputation for bringing truly game-changing products to the UK, European and American markets. This new addition is the first of many developments AVT Reliability® have looming, all designed to improve the transition and experience of users to a truly innovative and sustainable industry 4.0 solution”.
