VFD & IIoT solutions for improved process efficiency and equipment reliability

Condition-based monitoring (CBM) continues to evolve, strengthening our ability to improve process efficiency and equipment reliability. Our customized VFD & IIoT solutions represent the next generation of CBM for cost savings and revenue generation.

These solutions offer a rapid return on investment for industrial and commercial operations. They cut energy consumption, reduce peak loads, and extend the service life of critical equipment.

Most importantly, we engineer these solutions to be safe, secure, and easy to use.

No more route-based maintenance

Connecting motors, VFDs, and driven equipment through the IIoT enables remote condition-based monitoring. This eliminates the need for route-based maintenance, giving reliability engineers and maintenance departments early warnings on equipment problems.

The ability to see state changes in real time helps prevent catastrophic failure. Our VFD & IIoT solutions enhance condition-based monitoring with the following:

  • Blue Tooth/WiFi-enabled sensors — Real-time operating updates
  • Hardwired continuous monitoring — Smart motor controls for critical assets
  • Portable data collectors — Routine monitoring and high-resolution troubleshooting
  • Multi-channel analyzers — Critical systems evaluations
  • Current signature analysis — Complete, accurate view of machine conditions
  • Motion amplification — Faster troubleshooting and root cause failure analysis

The result is a scalable platform engineered for different levels of equipment health monitoring. We offer assessment options based on the criticality level of the asset.

Better insight into equipment problems

A properly designed and installed VFD & IIoT solution provides early warnings on operating problems with motors and pumps. These include:

  • Imbalance
  • Foundation degradation
  • Rolling element-bearing faults
  • Thermal instability
  • Shaft eccentricity
  • Rotor bow
  • Gear faults
  • Resonance
  • Contamination
  • Seal rub
  • Sleeve bearing wear
  • Improper guide vane/damper positioning

This is high-value, actionable asset intelligence. Unplanned failure costs more than planned maintenance — up to ten times more.

IPS condition-based monitoring optimizes process reliability. This improves operating efficiency, makes maintenance more effective, and lowers your total cost of ownership.
