In existing system
The sensor is autonomous, at it is fast and easy to create an end-to-end plant condition monitoring solution, by installing sensors on machines and integrating directly into existing operation and maintenance systems. This gives real-time status and visualization at existing front end.
”Working on-the-edge place the computing resources close to where data originates – or at the “edge”. Data processing, evaluation and decisions made centralized in the sensor are made faster, in real-time and ensures more robust and reliable results. As data remains in the private network, this increases data security.
The EWA sensors can be installed in all types of rotating machinery, across different application areas. Some application areas are mentioned below, but installation is not limited to these.
Raw material production
In the mining and metal industry there is use of rotating machinery in all part of the value chain, being the raw material extraction, refining, semi-finished production processing, water usage and wastewater treatment.
This segment is highly competitive and with very high sustainability focus, making condition monitoring solutions very interesting.
Industrial plants are filled with many different types of rotating machines, e.g. compressors, pumps, turbines, generators, blowers, motors and gearboxes.
This is both critical machines for production, non-critical machines and utility machines.
Supervision and trending of machine health will increase both system uptime and efficiency. Retrofitting of monitoring solutions is important.
Production stop because of a machine failure, is extremely critical. There is a very limited time to identify and repair the machine, before it cause highly damage on the process and downtime of the entire production train.
There is little tolerance for unplanned shut downs either for inspection or for maintenance activities, and condition monitoring is a supporting tool to avoid it. Automated early detection of incipient faults is crucial to enable sufficient lead time to plan the necessary remedial maintenance actions.
The wastewater segment is heading a future, where skilled service staff gets more difficult to find.
Pump and motors are used in all pumping stations, either dry-installed or submerged. Condition monitoring can optimize service planning and unintentional calls outside working hours.
On treatment plants other rotating machinery are used, as mixers and blowers. Condition monitoring can reduce downtime and unintentional overflows.
The automotive production differs from most other areas, by the sheer amount of different processes, and the materials that are used and the varied sizes of components. Often, smaller machines are used for the production of larger components – and a modern motor car has as many as 30,000 components.
A faulty product coming down the assembly line is leading to costly rework translating into downtime and delays in delivery – therefore, it is normal to analyze each machine along the production line, keeping the whole plant running smoothly.
Gas & Oil production
This sector has highest focus on productivity and efficiency.
They have some very big and critical machines in the refining process, mostly turbines.
In the transportation process, in auxiliary systems, in water treatment and in water purification a lot of pumping equipment is dominating.
Increased Uptime & Efficiency
Increase system uptime
An unplanned production stop has large costs, in lost production and in customer loyalty. It is of big importance to reduce unplanned system downtime.
Extend asset lifetime
Machine monitoring secure that it is safe, reliable and efficient over the machine operating life. Wear and damage on machine parts is identified before machine breakdown, extending the machine lifetime
Optimize service, maintenance planning and costs
Monitoring and supervision of wear and damages on machine parts make it possible to optimize service planning and reducing maintenance expenditures.
Condition monitoring is monitoring of a set of conditions in machines. It is used to recognize significant change to indicate the fault. When monitoring is done continuously and in real-time, it is possible to have actual status of a condition, and also following the fault development over time.

What we do differently
Complete Solution in a palm
The sensor does not require any gateway or cloud solution.
All monitoring, processing and analytics are handled on a small and unique sensor footprint.
The sensor is mounted non-invasive on the machine, using an adhesive. The sensor is designed with light emitting diodes (LEDs), for installation support. Only one sensor has to be installed per machine..
As all analytics are handled in the sensor, the sensor can be directly integrated in existing system – without use of cloud connection and cloud analytics.
The sensor output is giving concluded outputs as suggested actions, easy understandable, so no assessments or further analyzes are required.
Customers select the required features, depending on actual needs – they only select and pay for the actual features needed – nothing more.
For all machines
The sensor has a prices addressing all types of machineries – not only critical machines
Danish Development and Production
Our sensor is developed and produced, using danish partners. This ensures high-skilled capabilities, quality and speed.
