Machine condition monitoring: saving time and money

Avoid unnecessary downtime

Condition monitoring systems are necessary to collect operational data from critical components. This allows you to become aware of potential problems as they arise before they cause harm to your machinery. By implementing a monitoring system you can:

  • Remain informed about the conditions of your machines
  • Identify potential issues before it's too late
  • Avoid unnecessary downtime
  • Achieve lights out manufacturing

A variety of components are necessary to develop a successful machine condition monitoring application.

Increased vibration is typically an early warning sign of machine failure. Vibration sensors from ifm efector are ideal for detecting potential pneumatic or hydraulic system failure by recognizing increased acceleration in vibration. The data received can then be converted into an analog signal to be monitored or into an alarm. Temperature is also an early indicator of potential issues. Temperature sensors are necessary when monitoring machines that run continuously at a constant temperature rate. Minor fluctuations in temperature could reveal an approaching failure.

In order to properly monitor the results gathered from the sensor systems, a reliable plc is a must. The SIMATIC S7 1200 line from Siemens offer an efficient and very precise solution with the PROFINET IO-Controller for complex control tasks. The LOGO! Logic modules, which are ideal for smaller automation tasks, provide constant access to various areas of your application. The integral web server applications allow wireless monitoring and control via your smartphone, tablet or PC. The integrated Ethernet interface allows you to connect to the SIMATIC HMI basic panels. HMI operating panels provide a visual representation of current conditions, outputs and overall machine health. They are available in a variety of sizes and for numerous environments. Integrated software functions, such as alarm logging, make them ideal for monitoring the condition of your machines. Your application is not complete without a reliable passive I/O block for multiple inputs. For example, the M12 wiring blocks available from Murrelektronik are equipped with both power and status indicators allowing for easy monitoring of your machine's condition.
