Complete List of Condition Monitoring Techniques – MRO MagazineMRO Magazine
The future holds great promise for condition monitoring as more sensors are developed that can be mounted on equipment. Also, more equipment is being built to Internet of Things (IoT) standards.
Kelvin Bui, Marketing Associate at SMC, in the MSI Data blog said, “Industrial devices now have an unprecedented amount of sensing, processing and communications capabilities built into the product itself.”
Data analyzed for condition monitoring serves as the basis for predictive maintenance. Patterns emerge from the data showing a machine part may be deteriorating or beginning to fail. Based on the analysis, maintenance is then scheduled to prevent failure and avoid emergency downtime.
The following list of condition monitoring techniques, grouped by several category types, shows the extent technology has moved monitoring ahead. The various methods listed may or may not currently be linked within an IoT network, but most are suitable for automatic data collection and analysis.
