ITT’s Pro Services brand has launched the i-ALERT2, a Bluetooth Smart enabled machine health monitor that allows customers to identify potential problems before they become costly failures. It tracks vibration, temperature and run time hours and wirelessly syncs the data with a smartphone or table through the i-ALERT2 mobile app.
The new product combines the latest in Bluetooth low energy and sensor technologies commonly used in the newest consumer health and fitness trackers and smart watches such as the Apple Watch and Fitbit. The i-ALERT2 is the first to successfully integrate these technologies into an industrial package. It is engineered and rated for use in a wide range of industrial environments. It is chemical resistant, rated for extreme temperatures and is rated to operate in environments with explosive gases, dust and fibres.
Aris Chicles, President of ITT’s Industrial Process Business commented, “the breakthrough development of i-ALERT2 is industry changing. It further solidifies ITT’s continued commitment to providing customers with the most innovative monitoring and maintenance programs.”
“ITT’s i-ALERT2 delivers sophisticated technology so economically that it extends the practical reach of in plant monitoring systems to all types of machines, enabling rapid connection of industrial machines to the Industrial Internet of Things,” commented Dan Kernan, Global Product Director, Aftermarket Solutions, ITT’s Industrial Process Business.
The product has 24/7 monitoring, a wireless range of up to 30 m and the ability to scan multiple i-ALERT2 devices at once with a mobile device, customers will be able to quickly and safely inspect multiple pieces of equipment and be alerted to potential problems before they become critical failures.
Through the mobile app, customers can now view real time and historical data, diagnostic information and machine records. This provides them with the data necessary to make informed decisions.
