Condition Monitoring, IoT and IIoT

The term condition monitoring describes the continuous monitoring of the condition of machines, plants and systems in order to detect potential problems or deterioration at an early stage, for example. IoT (Internet of Things) and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) are two concepts in which devices, sensors and machines are connected to each other and constantly exchange data.

On the basis of intelligent and automated processes, condition monitoring in conjunction with the concepts of IoT and IIoT allows new and diverse possibilities in the production environment. By networking sensors, machines and analysis tools, for example, companies can collect and use real-time data. In this way, the condition and performance of equipment is continuously monitored and improved. In short: nothing stands in the way of the optimization of industrial plants and processes and the associated advantages in the production process.

The Benefits of Condition Monitoring, IoT, and IIoT

The possibilities in the field of condition monitoring are greatly expanded by the use of IoT and IIoT. By integrating e.g. sensors and other IoT devices in industrial plants, extensive data can be collected in real time and then transmitted to central systems. The use of condition monitoring is thus carried out in real time and current conditions and the performance of systems are continuously monitored accordingly.

When condition monitoring, IoT and IIoT are used together, the following advantages arise, for example:

Real-time monitoring

IoT and IIoT enable real-time monitoring of machines and assets. Sensors continuously record data such as vibration, temperature, pressure or power values and continuously transmit them to a central system. Potential problems or deviations are immediately identified and appropriate measures are taken to ultimately prevent failures or malfunctions before they occur.

Remote monitoring and remote access

An integration of IoT and IIoT makes it possible to retrieve condition monitoring data from anywhere. Remote monitoring of systems as well as real-time access to the status and performance of machines even allow intervention at any time, regardless of location.

Data Analysis and Prediction

The use of IoT and IIoT in the context of condition monitoring generates extensive data. These can be used for advanced data analysis and prediction models. By applying machine learning and AI algorithms, companies can also identify patterns and trends to predict potential problems and develop predictive maintenance strategies.

Automated processes and decisions

IoT and IIoT enable effective automation of operations. The collected data serves as the basis for the subsequent decisions in the production process. By integrating condition monitoring into IoT platforms, it is not only possible to define threshold values, but also to trigger automatic alarms or have certain actions carried out in the event of exceedances. This automated response to anomalies or deviations in the machine’s condition allows for the immediate initiation of troubleshooting or maintenance actions.

Typical applications of condition monitoring, IoT and IIoT

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:

Predictive Maintenance

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.

Efficiency optimisation

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.

Quality assurance

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.

Resource optimisation

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.
