BB-WSKIT3BE-CBM-V

The benefits of Condition Based Monitoring are well known. Tracking simple, measurable parameters like temperature, vibration, and current use lets an operator monitor the health of individual machines and systems, identify potential problems, and apply preventative maintenance before small problems turn into catastrophic failures. But what about the Condition Based Monitoring system itself? It can’t do its job unless it is highly scalable, long range, easy to deploy, and rugged enough for industrial environments. The Wzzard™ Condition Based Monitoring Application Bundle addresses all of these issues.

The Wzzard™ Energy Monitoring Application makes it simple to see the real time and historical electrical consumption of any individual machine or panel. Data can be exported for further analysis. Email or text message alerts can be sent when user-configured high or low limits are exceeded in critical applications. Installation costs are kept low using the Wzzard wireless sensing platform. The platform creates a self-forming, self-healing wireless mesh network that eliminates the need for wires and requires no special skills to install. Each Wzzard sensor node is powered by long life batteries.

After you install the monitoring software on your Windows PC, you can monitor the energy dashboard on that machine, or configure it to serve web pages that you can monitor from any web browser on your network.

 
BB-WSD2MD2

The Wzzard platform uses mesh networking and time-synchronized channel hopping to provide up to 99.999% connectivity, even in the most demanding RF environments. New nodes may be added at any time, and the SmartMesh IP network will dynamically self-configure as new nodes are added or removed. This is a function of the mesh network itself, and does not need to be controlled by the network gateway.
