Machfu, an industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology company, announced Thursday 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.
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.
Machfu simplifies the complex landscape of IIoT by connecting data at the edge to IoT databases in the cloud for business analytics. Machfu grew out of a simple idea: that developing and maintaining applications in the industrial IoT world should be as easy as it is in the desktop world or the smartphone world. Machfu products bring edge to enterprise connectivity to existing industrial infrastructure that can be deployed and scaled quickly.
“The combination of Machfu’s Gateway edge platform with ITT’s i-ALERT sensors enables automation of data collection activities,” said Dan Kernan, Executive Director, Aftermarket Technology & Solutions at ITT. “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.”
“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.
