Reducing Unplanned Downtime

One of the most expensive events in manufacturing or utility operations is unplanned downtime. Frequently this occurs through a failure of unmanned and unmonitored equipment, which may even be remote to the principle site, or be part of an extensive network of equipment. Its premature failure, which may be catastrophic, is first observed by the other systems that depend upon it ceasing to operate. An issue that was probably avoidable or at least foreseeable has now become an emergency repair. Such equipment has usually its own control system but this is not connected to anywhere that has the ability to monitor it.

InVMA’s Asset Manager connects this control system to anywhere that the equipment’s status and trends may be usefully observed. The solution is provided in a ready configured small enclosure that connects your critical equipment to a readily accessible secure web service. InVMA Asset Manager will not only alert you to critical failure but also warn you if various trends (flow, pressure, current, vibration etc) indicate wear or mal-operation, allowing you to plan remedial action and schedule a task, thus avoiding expensive unplanned downtime and reduced customer satisfaction.
