In the context of IoT and IIoT, condition monitoring opens up numerous application possibilities in various sectors and areas of industry. The following are examples of typical applications:
The combination of condition monitoring with IoT and IIoT enables the implementation of predictive maintenance strategies. As a result, continuously monitored machine data can be used to identify patterns and trends, which then indicate upcoming problems or maintenance needs. This enables forward-looking planning of maintenance work, e.g. to prevent failures and thus maximize the service life of systems.
IoT and IIoT enable companies to comprehensively monitor plant parameters in real time. The subsequent integration of condition monitoring leads to the identification of e.g. bottlenecks, as well as inefficient processes and also energy waste. The optimisation of these production processes leads, firstly, to an overall more efficient design in the production environment and, secondly, to a permanent reduction in costs.
Continuous monitoring of production machines and equipment significantly supports improved quality assurance. Condition monitoring allows deviations from quality standards to be detected and corrected at an early stage, so that product quality is improved and rejects are reduced.
Security & Compliance
Condition monitoring in conjunction with IoT and IIoT can be used to monitor safety parameters and conditions. As a result, companies can identify potential dangerous situations at an early stage and take appropriate measures in good time. As a result, safety in the workplace is guaranteed – and compliance with environmental and safety regulations is automatically integrated into everyday production without much effort.
Condition monitoring supports the efficient use of resources such as energy, raw materials and materials. For example, continuous condition monitoring enables companies to quickly identify bottlenecks and waste. Thus, the taking of appropriate measures is automated in a user-friendly way to not only increase resource efficiency, but also to achieve sustainability goals.
