Condition monitoring (CM) ensures high availability of machines by monitoring operation-critical parameters. It is a key component of Industry 4.0, where continuous acquisition of machine data is an essential requirement for ensuring uninterrupted operation of OT and IT. An example is the DATAEAGLE CM solution designed by Schildknecht AG together with PRTG from Paessler AG. This end-to-end solution consists of three components.
The compact Bluetooth sensors are designed for various applications, such as multi-sensors that acquire up to 8 metrics (e.g. temperature, acceleration, etc.). The industry-proven IoT Edge Gateway DATAEAGLE 2730 has several interfaces, including an integrated eSIM card for global connectivity or a fieldbus interface for local machine or edge connectivity. Last, the PRTG Network Monitor has dashboard and monitoring functionality to visualize sensor and machine data on an IT level.
