Today's building managers have access to a wide array of sensors to keep them apprised of changes in their building's operations— changes that when detected, reported and analyzed in a timely manner can anticipate breakdowns and avoid costly repairs:

Temperature sensors

 

In an industrial setting such as manufacturing, there are numerous advantages to measuring temperature. Machinery has to operate within tolerances, and if the ambient temperature in a factory or workshop doesn’t remain within these parameters, the performance or longevity of the equipment may be impacted. Even if not, operating outside of these conditions may void the warranty or lease agreement of the equipment. Temperature measurements can contribute to predictive maintenance too. Many machines used in manufacturing and computing are sensitive to temperature and have to be protected from overheating. With smart temperature sensors, businesses can automate heating, ventilation and air conditioning controls to maintain ideal conditions and automatically detect failures or faults as they happen, or even notice trends or patterns which warn you of the failure before it happens.

Humidity sensors

 

Humidity sensors enable you to maintain ideal conditions under a variety of environmental situations. In homes and businesses they’re used to control heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems. They’re used in manufacturing plants, hospitals, museums, greenhouses and weather stations— in fact, any environment that’s sensitive to moisture.

Leak detection, water pressure and flow

The costs associated with water damage in a facility is well known, not mention insurance and liability issues.  And in an industrial setting, there are critical advantages to measuring water pressure, flow, and any incidents of leaking. Machinery has to operate within tolerances, and if these measurable items don’t remain within the proper parameters, the performance or longevity of the equipment may be impacted. Even if not, operating outside of these conditions may void the warranty or lease agreement of the equipment.  Many machines used in manufacturing and computing are sensitive to flow and pressure changes and have to be protected from exceeding the proper thresholds. With smart flow, pressure and leakage sensors, businesses can automate controls to maintain ideal conditions and automatically detect failures or faults as they happen, or even notice trends or patterns which warn you of the failure before it happens.

Motor and machine vibration

Vibrometers replace traditional manpower inspection, allowing manufacturers to achieve remote detection and monitoring 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Diagnosis via ISO 10816 assists system integrators in getting started quickly, lowering the entry threshold for preventive maintenance and realizing factory intelligence. This enables factory owners and administrators to analyze data and plan proactive maintenance or preventative measures that anticipate events before they occur.

Electrical current sensors

 

Electrical current sensors measure real-time energy consumption at a circuit, zone or machine level. Knowing how much energy is being used has two main uses.  Firstly, you can identify where you use and waste the most energy, allowing you to make savings. You can also automatically switch off assets when they’re not in use. Secondly, if you can recognize normal operating conditions you can also see when machinery isn’t functioning as well as it should. For example, a higher-than-average operating current could tell you that a motor has been overloaded.This insight means you can schedule maintenance when it’s actually needed rather than pay for routine inspections. And, you can fix potential problems before they get worse, and keep unplanned downtime to a minimum.
