The I-MECH sensor is a wireless sensor Condition Based Monitoring (CBS) platform for Industry 4.0 high volume manufacturing processes. The production line ready solution developed is a smart, energy efficient, embedded system for improving manufacturing efficiency and the sensing capability will reduce the likelihood of failures in machinery (such as the particular pilot line use case- Linear Synchronous Motors –LSMs) and in a variety of industrial processes.
The technology has been developed to enable fault mode diagnostics and it supports continuous data capture allowing for enhanced prediction of potential failures with the potential to translate into quantifiable cost savings from increased yield and reduced manufacturing line downtime.
The I-MECH sensor platform enables low latency bi-directional communications and data processing and analytics on the edge for time critical applications. It measures luminescence, temperature, vibration and magnetic field strength.
