Retrofit sensor for safe data collection of power information
Advanced Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance software tools rely today on artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning methods, and consequently on a huge number of annotated data. Machine operators prefer non-intrusive data collection, means no access to their control system, which complicates data collection, thus the need for appropriate and easy add-on measurement hardware.
The data collected comprises various parameters, however, power consumed or power output is cumbersome to collect without access to the control software. This inexpensive add-on sensor enables the safe data collection of power information by means of measuring the current flow (magnetic field) in the power cords.
