Think of an item of your production equipment.
Now think of it as your baby (perhaps you already do). Of course you want to give your baby the best care and protection you can.
But on the other hand, you don’t want to be dragged out of bed every five minutes just because your baby turns over or burps. So what you need for your plant is a more intelligent baby monitor, that helps you tell the difference between a cry for help and a sleepy snuffle.
What you need is an ERIKS condition monitoring sensor system.
An ERIKS sensor system is a highly cost-effective alternative to a full-blown vibration sensing set-up (which is more like a full-time nanny). Instead of keeping a 24-hour eye on your equipment and alerting you to the slightest variation from the norm, it intelligently interprets the data coming from the machine, and decides – for each individual deviation from pre-set parameters – whether or not you need to be alerted.
