Maintenance 4.0 is a concept closely related to Industry 4.0, where predictive maintenance is one of the important technological aspects and characteristic features of Industry 4.0. The principle is to predict the development of the equipment's condition and detect a potential problem or malfunction in time. It is therefore essential to obtain as much information as possible about the maintained equipment, continuously in such a way that the development of changes in properties, parameters, etc. over time is clear. By processing and analyzing the information, it is possible to predict problems and therefore to carry out the repair of a given part of the device before it is damaged or crashes and with already pre-ordered parts. The shutdown of production is thus planned, it is possible to carry out production in stock, and its failure has minimal effects on the subsequent logistics of goods and sales.
The solution from Unified Cloud Sensors, consisting of SensoCom and SensoCom DIN modules, and the communication and server infrastructure of SensoField Cloud meet all the technical requirements for functioning in both a 4G network and a 5G network, using the NB-IOT standard within an LPWAN type network. The solutions meet the vision of the fourth industrial revolution Industry 4.0, Maintenance 4.0 and Agriculture 4.0, which are directly linked to the use of the IIoT Industrial Internet of Things.
