New solutions for Predictive Maintenance - a strong trend at Hannover Messe

I guess that few have missed the trend of industry 4.0 and after years of prediction many hyped ideas for futuristic factories are turning into reality. At the Hannover Messe in April we were inspired by the speed of innovation in the industry and especially of the strong trend towards techniques to predict the future failure points of machine components.

It is not a big surprise that the top three technologies trending on the Hannover Fair was 5G, IOT and Cloud. However, new solutions for Predictive Maintenance is an upcoming trend and more and more companies are taking the next step to positioning themselves within this field.

We at LumenRadio love Predictive Maintenance, not only because of the cost effectiveness that it implies, but also the need for large scale meshing wireless sensor networks. Interconnection and the ability for devices to connect and communicate with each other is an important prerequisite for the development of the next industrial revolution. The connectivity technology is the base for reliable predictive maintenance solutions and it will more and more set the framework for future product performance.

Imagine if countless different sensors could be mounted wirelessly anywhere in a harsh industrial environment. All connected to each other in a perfectly applied meshed network, running on batteries or energy harvesting technology. Then picture yourself that the wireless connection is even more reliable and robust in comparison to wired solutions and that the power consumption is as low as a few micro amperes. This scenario is not fictive anymore. Technology from LumenRadio makes it possible to install sensors anywhere in a super easy way, but also retrofit already installed sensors. Wireless = Effortless.

We believe that Predictive Maintenance will be a requirement in future Industrial applications. That is why now is the perfect time to start implementing the wireless technology needed to succeed in the next industrial revolution. Smart Predictive Maintenance is still considered an up-and-coming trend, which opens up possibilities for companies to out-run the competition and differentiate their product offer.

The installation of wireless sensors is predicted to grow at an exponential rate over the next few years, Industrial sensor networks being a big part of this growth. Are you considering wireless predictive maintenance or want to know more about why choosing the right wireless technology will be crucial for your future success?
