Platform to Enable Easy and Scalable Connectivity to i-ALERT AI platform for Equipment Health Monitoring
Rockville, Md., October 10, 2019 – Machfu, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology company, announced today the integration of its Internet of Things Gateway Platform with ITT Inc.’s i-ALERT Sensor and Ai Web Platform. The integration provides scalable predictive maintenance at any level. The i-ALERT Gateway provides a secure connection between the i-ALERT sensors and the i-ALERT Ai Platform. Vibration spectrum from equipment can be retrieved when there is an alarm as well as getting around the clock trends of vibration and temperature data.
“Working together, the two companies will help industrial customers expand life expectancy of machines and predict failures before they occur. This is the latest example of Machfu’s leadership in rapidly integrating with the emerging IoT ecosystem,” said John Geiger, V.P. Business Development at Machfu.
ITT Inc.’s i-ALERT sensors track tri-axial vibration, tri-axial kurtosis, temperature, and run-time hours 24/7/365. They also wirelessly synchronize data to the i-ALERT mobile app via Bluetooth V4 enabled devices. A check is performed every five minutes and alarms if the equipment is outside normal operating conditions. Visual ALERTs notify users and they wirelessly broadcast an alarm message.
“The combination of Machfu’s IIoT Gateway edge platform with ITT’s i-ALERT sensors enables automation of data collection activities. Our i-ALERT customers now have the flexibility to scale their condition monitoring program from simple trouble-shooting with their mobile phone or continuous remote monitoring with the i-ALERT gateway,” said Dan Kernan, Executive Director, Aftermarket Technology & Solutions at ITT.
