Permanent installations: 830 WSN

The ITR 830 WSN is a wireless, battery powered solution for tracking real time temperature and vibration on industrial equipment and providing early warnings for potential failure modes. The system is comprised of an Endpoint sensor assembly, a Coordinator, and a Repeater. All installations require at least one Endpoint and one Coordinator, but a broad wireless sensor network can be configured using Repeaters to encompass an entire industrial complex.

IP69k Endpoints are surface mounted onto a machined bore of a housing. Each Endpoint is identified by address and ID and can be configured using a smart phone. To save energy and extend battery life (approx. 1 year), measurement and transmissions are throttled when the temperature or vibration falls below a configurable threshold.

Endpoints communicate wirelessly directly (or via repeaters) to the Coordinator. The Coordinator manages all Endpoints and handles local and internet communications. Devices such as smart phones, tablets, and computers on the same local network can view charts of temperature and vibration. In addition, the web interface of the Coordinator can be used to manage system settings as well as Exception Tests and Notifications. Exception notifications alert users to problems and contain information regarding trends and the individual sensors and assets associated with the exception. A single 4-20ma output is configurable to indicate exception severity levels. The Coordinator pushes data to ITR’s cloud server at ITR.com for viewing by anyone connected to the Internet. Settings for the system are maintained and configured by users at ITR.com.
