MQTT is a simple messaging protocol, designed for constrained devices with low-bandwidth. So, it’s the perfect solution for Internet of Things applications. MQTT allows you to send commands to control outputs, read and publish data from sensor nodes and much more. The new development provides a standard method of communication for iTrixx equipment runtime meter to reliably communicate data across networks with any IoT platform and applications, it makes it really easy to establish a communication between iTrixx and other devices, enables iTrixx become a standard product in IIoT arena for data acquisition.
Collect production machine runtime hours for predictive maintenance with iTrixx equipment runtime meter
Since 90 percent of machine maintenance is based upon hours instead of miles, the iTrixx is an ideal tool for keeping up with preventative maintenance schedules. This device can help extend the life cycle and performance of powered equipment as well as tracking a range of equipment across a warehouse, construction site, or multi-location company.
A manufacturer in the US automated the collection of their production machine runtime from 3 locations across the United States by using the iTrixx NHM. This eliminated the need to physically visit each machine to manually collect data by using the iTrixx NHM’s RESTful API to send the data to their ERP manufacturing system automatically. It allows the service team to focus on troubleshooting and complex problem resolution and saves tremendous time on data collection and reduces operation costs.
iTrixx Wireless Equipment Hour Meter for Forklift
We have worked with many customers in the past, and developed different software to meet various applications that is easy to use. The iTrixx equipment hour meter is special designed device to track equipment usage for preventative maintenance.
Many companies are faced with the costly predicament of logging the run time for their industrial vehicles and equipment to ensure a proper maintenance schedule. With the costs of having to make visits to record data logs and equipment files, the use of an iTrixx eliminates this by allowing the collection of data logs remotely and simplifies the process of routine maintenance. This exciting new technology enables monitoring, data collection to reduce cost, improve efficiency.
What to monitor: Equipment usage, operator behavior (impacts)
Implement hour-based maintenance schedule with iTrixx hour meter to eliminate machine downtime and increase business revenue
Since 90 percent of machine maintenance is based upon hours instead of miles, the iTrixx is an ideal tool for keeping up with preventative maintenance schedules. This device can help extend the lifecycle and performance of the machine as well as collect runtime and operational data. It can then automatically transfer this data to an existing database for a single site or multiple locations.
What to monitor: Machine usage, Idle time, vibration, voltage, machine uptime/downtime, amount of stops
“Forgital USA produces forged and laminated rolled rings used in a wide range of industries. We searched for a fast and accurate way to track spindle times in our machine shop. After conducting a brief online search, we connected with Linortek regarding its iTrixx IoTMeter. Although the solution was originally designed for maintenance, we easily adapted the device to our production needs.
We purchased four iTrixx NHM and installed them on our seven machines. Every time a machine spins, the meter starts recording time. We’re able to detect the date and hours when each machine is producing. All the data we collect helps us build a precise efficiency percentage which has enabled us to increase our productivity and revenue. The device is simple to use and easy to install, and Linortek’s customer service is great.“
