The Sushi Sensor is a compact wireless device from Yokogawa that will be available in the European market from March 2019. The sensor is an OpreX brand and measures the vibration and surface temperature of plant equipment such as compressors, pumps, motors, fans, and conveyors. It enables the online monitoring of equipment operating conditions, which is ideal to detect signs of equipment abnormalities at an early stage and to prevent unexpected equipment failures.
Improved maintenance efficiency
Featuring integrated sensing and communication functions, the Sushi Sensor uses the LoRaWan, a low-power wide-area (LPWA) wireless data communication protocol based on an open standard. This wireless communication technology is optimized for long-distance communications and low-power consumption which is attractive for IIoT applications. The data collected can be monitored from on-premise or cloud server.
These features allow cheaper and easier maintenance by eliminating the costs of wired devices as an external power supply, and enable to access difficult locations thanks to the sensor’s environmental resistance. With a dedicated app, it is also possible to monitor sensor setting and sensor condition.
