Case Study: How to minimize machine asset downtime with smart sensor-based solutions

Abhishek Jadhav, Mechanical Engineer, Sensata Technologies


Industrial IoT is transforming the way the world designs, builds and innovates. It is helping to take purpose-built machines/systems, and make them smart, transforming them into living, intelligent systems in a way that has been little short of revolutionary. As machines have become more intuitive, so has the need to accurately monitor their health, efficiency, and performance. The addition of these features has become an essential part of achieving operational excellence. Sensors have, in turn, been elevated in importance as a critical part of the manufacturing ecosystem. However, only a few assets considered critical are monitored with IOT sensors.
In this session we will be showing a number of case studies where condition monitoring and rotating equipment monitoring solutions hep minimize machine downtime in industrial settings, using new and smart sensor-based solutions. We will be showing how these solutions have been scaled at plant level in order to help reduce operational costs, increase productivity, and optimize performance in smart factory and smart building applications.


– Learn how IOT solutions are scalable and affordable across the entire plant, not just for critical assets
– Sensors in use to accurately monitor the current condition of machines, in order to avoid production shutdowns
– On-premises or cloud analytics solutions, in order to predict upcoming machine failure by using automated real-time analytics (i.e. predicting remaining useful life or overall machine health)
