AVT Reliability’s Machine Sentry has enhanced its Cloud-based condition monitoring offering with the launch of Machine Sentry 2.5.
The latest developments enhance Android applications of the system and include integration with Bluetooth low energy (LE) sensors from any manufacturer, support for new, advanced oil quality and vibration sensors and a simplified measurement import application programme interface (API).
In addition to employing MSF-1, a Machine Sentry sensor, companies using the Android application can now add any brand of sensor to the system, by simply copying the sensor definition to the Android device’s internal storage and opening it. Once loaded, the new sensor will be able to collect measurements in the same way as MSF-1.
Machine Sentry 2.5 also enables enhanced oil quality and vibration monitoring capability with the addition of two new compatible sensors. The Tandelta oil quality sensor, connected via the Tandelta OQD Express display, means the oil condition can be monitored in situ without having to extract a sample and send it to the lab. Wear or contamination is measured in real time to an accuracy of 0.001%.
