enLink Status-V – LoRa Wireless Vibration Sensor

enLink Status-V measures machine vibration using a 3-axis digital accelerometer with full scale range of ±16g.

Condition Monitoring using vibration analysis is a key component of smart industry that involves monitoring equipment during operation to provide early warning of potential failures, increase safety, reduce downtime and boost machine performance.

enLink Status-V uses long range LoRa wireless to measure and send machine vibration readings for up to 16km. Long life battery power enables simple, low cost installation for a variety of applications.

The high performance, low power, embedded MEMS accelerometer has a configurable full-scale acceleration range of ±2/±4/±8/±16 g with high accuracy and stability to provide detailed analysis of vibration.

Benefits of vibration monitoring

  • Extend machine life
  • Reduce downtime
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Early failure warnings
  • Reduce failures
  • Improve performance
  • Increased safety
  • Plan maintenance

Long range LoRa wireless transmits the data for up to 16 km with deep in building penetration of 1—2 km without repeaters.

Data can be received by any LoRaWAN compliant gateway or enLink Hub to forward data to the Cloud where it can be analysed using enVision or third party applications.

When used with enLink Hub, sensor data can be sent via long range LoRa wireless and converted to Modbus IP register values for integration with EMS/BMS, SCADA or monitoring equipment.
