IIoT or PLC Vibration Monitoring: Which is Right for You?



Vibration monitoring allows you to continuously monitor the condition of your equipment, especially the pumps, fans, compressors, and other rotational equipment that are critical to your operation. This allows you to keep an eye on your equipment from a central location, reducing the need for on-site inspections, and increasing efficiency. This can also allow you to quickly respond to any issues that may arise, reducing the risk of unplanned downtime. But which method of vibration monitoring is right for you?

In this webinar, we will explore the difference between IIoT and PLC-based vibration monitoring and feature a demonstration of our GraceSense™ Predictive Maintenance System. We will also be demonstrating the new Rockwell Automation Studio 5000® Add-On Profile (AOP) for our GraceSense™ wireless condition monitoring software. Unlike most options on the market, GraceSense™ provides the best of both worlds by letting YOU CHOOSE which application is right for you.

Learning Objectives • Learn the advantages and disadvantages of IIoT-based and PLC-based Vibration Monitoring • See how easy it is to get started with the Rockwell Automation Studio 5000® AOP for GraceSense™ Predictive Maintenance • Demonstration of real-time IIoT-based detection of rotational faults while using wireless vibration monitoring devices • Advantages and value of using IIoT within your existing control systems and infrastructure.
