Hear a Bearing Failure from Miles Away
The internet of things (IoT) is making it easier for reliability engineers to connect equipment and automate asset data collection so they can make better decisions that impact operational availability. This paper reveals how maintenance teams can use IoT technology to hear vibration problems from anywhere with web access just as clearly as if they were on the plant floor. It includes recordings of a failing bearing so you can hear for yourself. NI is an Affiliate member of the Intel® IoT Solutions Alliance.
