A Proactive Approach to Electrical Maintenance eBook

Hot Spot Monitor

The Hot Spot Monitor (HSM) is a non-conductive temperature monitoring and alarming device that identifies potential hot spots and enables users to predict the failures in electrical equipment. Identifying faults before they occur saves money when unplanned outages, service interruptions, and equipment failures are avoided.

Plant-wide integration is made simple when the device is connected via MODBUS TCP/IP or Ethernet IP and stand-alone application is made possible with GraceSense's web interface to configure temperature thresholds, monitoring intervals, and relay outputs. HSM's are available in two formats; an 18-point temperature monitoring module and a 9-point module with an LCD Display.


Vibration & Temperature Node

The Vibration & Temperature Node is a rugged wireless sensor with advanced edge processing and proprietary Zigbee compatible communication monitors vibration and temperature to insightfully predict health on any rotating equipment. Multiple mounting options ensure quick deployment across applications in any industry. Easy to replace batteries deliver 3-5 years of life (dependent on use).


Panel-Mount Node/CloudGate

The Panel-Mount Node is easy to configure with a wide selection of inputs, transducers, radios, and power options; these nodes can be mounted in our environmentally rated GracePort housings.

When configured as a CloudGate with LTE or WiFi, a Panel-Mount CloudGate can provide support to thousands of nodes within a 30m radius, making the architecture massively scalable.

GraceSense Accessories & Transducer Options

Accessories for GraceSense products include the Vibration & Temperature Node’s Magnetic Mount Accessory that utilizes a strong magnet, making it suitable to be mounted on most type of equipment. Each Vibration & Temperature Node order can include the Magnetic Mount Accessory and comes complete with assembly and installation instructions.

The Hot Spot Monitor includes a High-Temperature Probe Accessory as an optional add-on for applications operating in -40°C to +160°C (-40°F to +320°F). With withstand the higher temperature, this accessory is made from fluoropolymer.

About GraceSense™

The entire GraceSense Predictive Maintenance System encompasses a wide array of asset health monitoring smart devices utilizing IIoT and allows users to view real-time analytics through an intuitive web-based app. GraceSense was first introduced with the Hot Spot Monitor (HSM); a non-conductive temperature monitoring device that identifies potential hot spots in critical equipment and alerts users to abnormalities before they lead to unplanned shutdowns.

To complement the HSM, GraceSense has incorporated field-proven IIoT smart devices capable of monitoring asset health and alerting personnel to potential abnormalities through the web-based Maintenance Hub that provides real-time dashboards, analytics, alert capabilities, and configuration. Among these predictive smart devices are the Vibration & Temperature Node and Panel-Mount CloudGate/Node.
