Advantech WISE-2460 smart vibration sensing solution for health monitoring equipment

Advantech has introduced the new WISE-2460 innovative vibration sensing solution. This device supports RS-485 serial communication through Modbus/RTU protocols and boasts Z-axis sensitivity spanning from 5 to 10000Hz. ISO 10816-1 compliant and capable of operating in a wide temperature range of -20°C to 105°C, WISE-2460 sets a new standard in vibration sensing technology.

Designed for monitoring equipment RPM and frequency detection ranges in challenging environments, WISE-2460 features an ARM Cortex-M7 processor, a high-detection-range Z-axis accelerometer, and a temperature sensor, all enclosed in a robust IP68-rated enclosure. The device simplifies configuration and alarm threshold management through the user-friendly Advantech WISE Studio utility.

Unlike conventional piezo vibration sensors that require connection to a high-speed DAQ card and subsequent calculations on a remote IPC, the WISE-2460 series offers an integrated solution. Capable of swiftly executing data acquisition, processing, and publication in seconds, it easily outperforms costly and inefficient traditional setups. WISE-2460 is designed to identify vibrations within the 5 to 10,000 Hz range through single-axis measurements. It transmits data using RS-485 and supports the Modbus/RTU protocol, making it well-suited for a variety of industrial applications. Its enhanced sensitivity enables the sensor to detect emerging problems not visible at lower frequencies. WISE-2460 also provides vibration data for four machine classes across four levels, following ISO 10816-1 guidelines. By analysing these vibration characteristics, operators can swiftly diagnose motor problems. This empowers maintenance teams to proactively tackle issues before they deteriorate, reducing downtime and averting expensive equipment malfunctions.

Advantech WISE Studio is user-friendly yet powerful utility software for configuring, managing, and monitoring IoT devices, which encompasses device management, monitoring, and data visualisation features. This tool enables seamless cloud connectivity, firmware updates, and the useful creation of personalised data dashboards. Utilising Advantech WISE Studio, users gain access to all the necessary vibration characteristics like velocity RMS, acceleration RMS, acceleration peaks and more. The advanced configuration of WISE Studio enables operators to personalise detection range settings with up to ten detection bands. Additionally, users can directly acquire time waveform data from the WISE-2460 series, facilitating further diagnostic analysis.

The WISE-2460 series is built to endure extreme temperatures ranging from -20°C to 105°C and boasts an IP68 protection rating. This makes it suitable for deployment in the most demanding industrial settings, even those deemed too hazardous for extended human presence. It excels at monitoring critical vibrating machinery while also withstanding high equipment surface temperatures.
Applications include proactive maintenance for vibration monitoring, serving sectors such as semiconductor, automotive assembly, steel and cement production, and the food & beverage industry. Equipment under surveillance by WISE-2460 include rotary lobe pumps, screw pumps, propeller pumps, air compressors, gearboxes, motors, fans, blowers, belts and chain drives, couplings, centrifugal pumps, piston pumps, sliding vane pumps, piston compressors, centrifugal compressors, screw compressors, closed coupled machines, spindles, and more.

Cost Effective Solution for Enhancing Asset and Facility Management
Deploying the WISE-2460 series for predictive maintenance delivers widespread benefits including asset visualisation, enhanced availability, and substantial asset management returns. This versatility empowers industrial plant operators to improve facility management through machine health assessment, fault classification, predictive insight, data visualisation, and optimal maintenance strategies.
