The Importance of Bluetooth for Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance in IIoT

Condition monitoring and Predictive Maintenance (PdM) form the foundation of what we now know as Industrial IoT (IIoT) or Industry 4.0. It’s common to assume that both terms mean the same thing, but the reality is, they are very different. Condition monitoring involves monitoring a specific parameter (vibration, temperature, pressure, etc.), to identify any significant…

PdM Vibration Data Delivering High-Resolution using Enterprise Bluetooth IoT

     The following case study describes how SpaceSense 5.3kHz wireless predictive maintenance (PdM) solution gathers high-resolution PdM vibration data from Bluetooth low power sensors while retaining long battery life; and employs Cassia Networks enterprise Bluetooth IoT connectivity to deliver predictive maintenance (PdM) with a high return-on-investment (ROI). Figure 1 – PdM BoP Solution As a…

Bluetooth IoT – A Rising Tide

Enterprise Bluetooth IoT is a rising tide and an important development in the evolution of the Bluetooth® protocol. Traditional Bluetooth constraints – short-range, one-to-one connectivity, and lack of remote management – often relegated the protocol’s use to personal area network (PAN) applications. As a result, the overwhelming advantages of the Bluetooth protocol – very low-cost,…

PdM IoT: Ignored machines take the lead

Overview: Conversations on the IoT Tech Expo 2018 conference floor by Brad Canham Sometimes conferences provide developers with the technical meat they’re looking for. At other times conferences provide the core movements in a marketplace  the strategists – VCs, product managers, marketing people – are looking for. At the Nov. 28-29, 2018 IoT Tech Expo…

Long-range Bluetooth delivers easy-to-manage data for IoT condition monitoring

CASE STUDY – Long-range Bluetooth IoT delivers easy-to-manage data for IoT condition monitoring SITUATION: Machine health monitoring is “low hanging fruit” in Industry 4.0, providing a competitive edge in the form of reduced downtime, optimized maintenance processes, and increased profitability. Moreover, existing industrial IoT condition monitoring systems prefer the cost and value-added advantages of Bluetooth’s low-power…
