Trust Your Sensors – Petasense Launches ARO System
By DJ Slater09 August 2019
Gathering and analyzing sensor data from machinery has been a common practice for maintenance and reliability professionals in the power generation and gas compression industries, among many others. Many companies, though, only monitor a fraction of their critical assets continuously, leaving data gaps on the rest of their equipment.
Petasense hopes to change that narrative following the release of its Asset Reliability & Optimization (ARO) system. Comprised of plug-and-play industrial sensors, a cloud-based analytics platform and web and mobile applications, the ARO system helps industry professionals monitor and analyze the health of their critical machinery. Applicable equipment runs the gamut from rotating machinery (motors, pumps, compressors) to valves, electrical panels and steam traps.
“ARO incorporates data from multiple sensors and sources. We started with vibration data and have expanded to temperature, pressure, ultrasound, current and more to help paint a holistic picture of an asset’s health,” said Jon Bernie, sales and marketing manager for Petasense. “It’s a full end-to-end system that collects and analyzes multiple parameters of data, enabling industrial users to make informed decisions about their assets in real-time.”
