If you look at the image above, you can see that the algorithm issued a “RUL alert” as soon as the indicator went below a certain threshold
, which is identified in red on the z-axis of the graph. When the indicator is under said threshold for a specific amount of time (the orange bar at the bottom of the graph), IIoT.Edge automatically issued a “maintenance alert”,
(identified by the yellow diamond underneath the graph bar). Upon maintenance completion, we can see that the indicator went back to its original state.IIoT.Edge offers multiple options when it comes to alerts
– message or dashboard alerts being the most popular. It can even use an API call to any maintenance system to automatically schedule a maintenance activity.
In other words, you can use this technology to predict when maintenance should be performed to avoid breakdowns and maximize the availability of your machines while never having to rely on an operator
(which can be really hard to find these days with all the labor issues our industry is facing).
