The SmartDiagnostics® wireless network is an easy-to-install, end-to-end machine health monitoring solution. The network enables quick setup, low cost installation, flexibility to reconfigure and expand the network, and the ability to locate nodes in difficult-to-access areas. The network depicted below starts with the Sensor Nodes. These sensors are placed directly on to equipment and are configured to transmit data within minutes to the Base Station or Repeater using DARTwireless™. Repeaters extend the range of the network by relaying incoming sensor data to the Base Station. The Base Station can then pre-process the sensor data and transfer it to the Machine Condition Monitoring Software (MCM) either through Wi-Fi, Cellular, or Ethernet. Up to 50 Sensor Nodes can be linked to 1 Repeater and up to 4 Repeaters can be associated with 1 Base Station, meaning that this configuration could manage up to 250 sensors at once.
The heart of the SmartDiagnostics® system, Sensor Nodes are at home in the most inaccessible, inhospitable corners of your facility, monitoring your machine health quickly and accurately.
The Repeater extends the SmartDiagnostics® wireless network range in a cost-effective manner by acting as a data bridge between the sensor nodes and Base Station.
The Base Station enables users to place wireless sensors in remote locations where wireless transmission is typially not possible, setting up a local receiver station that communicates to the MCM computer via hardwire.
SmartDiagnostics® Machine Condition Monitoring Software (MCM) displays near-continuous information on the health of critical equipment by tracking their data characteristics.
