Monitoil sito-smallNew frontiers in Remote Diagnostics

Monitoil real-time surveils your machines’ condition

Mecoil Diagnosi Meccaniche s.r.l., with the partnership of several corporations, University of Florence, and under the sponsorhip of Regione Toscana has developed a prototype of remotely monitored machine, to be constantly “tutored” via numerous sensors or an on-line data collection system.

Data are transferred to a web platform, where decisions are automatically made on how and when is needed a corrective intervention either by human personnel or trough remotely assisted devices.

The O.M.T. (Online Machine Tutor) has been created as a response to increasing demand of assistance and corrective maintenance (only when necessary, on conditions’ based situation) in environments where these actions are difficult/expensive.

The outputs from the compressor (a small size unit, custom developed to be easily carried for demo purposes) are captured by several sensors (i.e. pressures, T°C, Vibrations…) and analyzed trough an expert system, that is capable to “remember” other failures and taking actions in order to correct them.

Data Storage
From the web page, you can record / historicize and analyze graphs using all monitored parameters on your machine, with visual alarm at abnormal conditions.
Virtual Cockpit
Opening the web page, you can view real-time monitored parameters as if we were physically in the presence of machinery chosen.

Specola finale

Specola is a integrated sensor suite for the determination of the physical chemical characteristics (viscosity, density, oil degradation%) and contamination (water and particulate) of running oil. Thanks to his compact size can be easily placed next to the machine, and the Mini-mess connectors allow a easy and quick installation. A bypass circuit can be use, not interfering with the normal asset operation at all. The equipped sampling point allows to sample the running oil in under controlled conditions. Connected to Monitoil, Specola allows an immediate on-line monitoring of your strategic asset.
