Large Construction Aggregate Plant Uses B-Scada Dashboards for Condition Based Monitoring
Tuesday, April 12, 2016

CRYSTAL RIVER, FL: B-Scada, Inc. has announced that their product partner, Advantech B+B SmartWorx, recently released a case study detailing a deployment of their Wzzard Intelligent Sensing Platform and a monitoring system developed using B-Scada's data visualization software. The customer is a large construction aggregate plant that operates 10 high horsepower Secondary Crusher Drive Motors and associated conveyor belts, producing 600 tons of product per hour. The customer's cost of operations was substantially magnified by unplanned and unscheduled maintenance for their very expensive equipment.

They contacted Advantech B+B SmartWorx hoping to implement a Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) sensor system that would allow them to continually monitor the motors in real time, apply analytics to detect changes in motor behavior before breakdown or failure, and alert maintenance staff via text or email to perform preventative maintenance and avoid costly shutdowns.

The dashboards used to monitor the real time sensor data were created using B-Scada's Status Device Cloud platform, an open IoT platform that allows data from various sources to be consolidated in a virtual model for visualization, analysis, and automation. B-Scada's software technology is a perfect complement to the intelligent sensing technology developed by Advantech B+B SmartWorx, and the two companies look forward to bringing M2M and IoT solutions to more businesses hoping to improve the efficiency, quality, safety, and intelligence of their operations.
