Condition Monitoring of Turbomachinery with Internet-of-Things (IOT)
Condition monitoring is one of the critical process in turbomachinery equipment. As a factory equipment, Turbormachinery mostly transfers data via controllers such as programmable-logic-controller (PLC). Parameters of the machine health is transferred and monitored via local-areanetwork or wireless network to the control center. The technology of Internet-of-Things (IoT) has become matured and offers another alternative to transfer data, and this can be useful for condition monitoring on turbomachinery equipment. This project studies the vibration sensors suited for the project, the communication networks, and demonstrated the built prototype. Data collected from the vibration sensors will be transmitted via LoRa network to the cloud. LoRa is the long range, low power wireless network for data transmission, usually seen as an enabler for Internet-of-Things (IOT). The transmitted data will be received and display on devices. This method offers an innovative solution for condition monitoring on turbomachinery.
