Wireless monitoring and control
REX Controls is involved in the SIRIUS E! 8144 Eurostars project which develops a high-performance, versatile wireless system with self-powered capabilities, used for data acquisition, process monitoring and control, with applications in industrial vibration monitoring, condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.
An embedded / deep-embedded solution for wireless monitoring and control will be provided, following the idea of distributed intelligence, which now penetrates into modern production lines and technological plants. Such a high-performance system with high-speed accurate sensing, on-board data processing, high-throughput, low-delay and real-time wireless communication is the ideal candidate for a large number of industrial applications.
Such a system can support sustainable maintenance and advanced monitoring and control, and thus contribute to increased safety, optimized energy consumption, improved risk-based analysis and even reduced environmental pollution in a large range of industries.
This system will be a flexible and affordable solution for production SMEs.
A compact and focused consortium works together in building this system:
- Inertia Technology, The Netherlands, R&D SME with proven expertise in wireless sensing – project leader;
- REX Controls, Czech Republic, R&D SME with proven track record in advanced control solutions;
- PROSYS PC, Romania, R&D SME with proven experience in industrial hardware development and integration.
Key innovations achieved:
- High-performance, high-speed, robust wireless communication.
- Versatility – the same system can be configured to operate under different performance constraints.
- Local intelligence, as wireless sensors will be powerful enough to process the sampled data locally.
- Self-powering capabilities, through energy harvesting.
- Enabling real-time computations, vibration analysis and other performance assessment procedures.
- Extensive connectivity capabilities, from the field level to the plant and above levels.
