The maintenance of field devices requires a significant cost in man-hours. Considerable time is necessary to physically check each field device, especially in plants with limited staff. However, such an approach to maintenance results in also checking equipment that is functioning correctly or missing failing devices in between periodic check-ups.
Intelligent sensors from METTLER TOLEDO have the unique ability to evaluate their performance and calculate the days remaining until calibration and replacement will be required. These remote diagnostics in conjunction with device management greatly improve reliability and plant safety. METTLER TOLEDO’s predictive remote diagnostic tools can be easily presented in asset management software and can be accessed via the internet on any suitably equipped PC or laptop, ensuring workers are confident in the performance state of their devices at any time and place.
The Internet of Things (IOT) is already influencing our daily lives and will continue to do so in new and innovative ways. The ability to access, manipulate and allow everyday household objects to not only analyze, observe and interact with us, but also to make decisions and conclusions on their own, is a valuable tool for improving our lives and our efficiency. The workplace is no exception to this, and a key aspect of Industry 4.0 is the Industrial IOT (IIOT), the ultimate means of bringing the future of modern technology into your chemical plant.
METTLER TOLEDO digital analytical sensors embrace the concepts of Industry 4.0 with their Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM) technology. While measuring analytical parameters, ISM sensors use current and historic process data to constantly calculate important diagnostic values.
