PROJECT NAME: Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) & Health Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) for the mining sector
Making installation of sensors for CBM and HUMS easier and cheaper
Existing sensor systems are wired based, requiring physical wiring connections between sensors and the data loggers both to transmit the measured data and supply power to the sensors.
Installation of wired sensors is a cumbersome process. For large or complex structures, it is not uncommon for such installations requiring hundreds of man-hours. Repairs to these systems also require hundreds of man-hours to diagnose and identify the area of damage and relay of the damaged wiring/sensors.
From an engineering and maintenance viewpoint, the more important a piece of equipment is, the more reasons there are to implement CBM/HUMS. However, such equipment are also crucial to production and costs millions of dollars per day in lost production during the installation (and repair) of the sensor system.
