Since SKFs products are often used in extremely harsh industrial environments, they needed to find a wireless technology that could offer the highest reliability together with the lowest power consumption on the market. By partnering up with LumenRadio and using our MiraOS technology for ultra-reliable wireless communication SKF got several benefits.
The wireless mesh technology in MiraOS enables SKFs sensors to exchange data, navigating around obstacles, such as pipework and liquid storage tanks, instead of trying to punch through them. MiraOS patented cognitive co-existence technique scans the radio spectrum and switches frequencies to avoid ‘busy’ channels and overcome interference.
All this means increased radio reliability and less retransmissions – significantly reducing the power consumption of the battery in a small device.
