VocalZoom Introduces Autonomous Sensors for IIoT

February 6, 2020 Perry Cohen

VocalZoom (VZ), a provider of vibration sensors for industry 4.0, launched its Autonomous Sensors for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Combining contactless, high-resolution vibration sensor technology with built-in data processing and wireless communications, the company’s Autonomous Sensors offer low-cost and fast deployment of a wide range of monitoring applications for IIoT environments.

VZ’s laser sensors measure 3D, motion, and vibrations of any surface to enable industrial manufacturers to monitor the real-time health and performance of engines, turbines, pumps, and more. Their compact and contactless form enables the sensors to work on hot, wet, and moving surfaces.

They even continue to analyze mechanical health through glass. VZ’s Autonomous Sensors also include built-in real-time data processing and decentralized data logic powered by Ucontrol’s uPC platform. This offers a standalone solution for edge processing and data analytics. The system can connect to a computer in the manufacturer’s production line or to an internal or external cloud.

Combining a patented sensor and data processor into one unit allows the Autonomous Sensor to measure and analyze results without the need for additional products. Even while calculating RPM, thickness, vibration anomalies, existence, height, rotation, homogeneity, weight, and flow, the optical sensors don’t influence the product, resulting in more accurate readings.

Unlike traditional monitoring systems, the sensors aren’t susceptible to ambient noise or vibrations and can be deployed quickly and easily practically anywhere in an IIoT setting without any downtime. 

Industrial manufacturers using the VZ Autonomous Sensor can take advantage features including:

  • Automatic wireless LAN setup
  • Configurable data edge processing designed for a wide range of algorithms
  • Real-time alerts via SMS, email, buzzer
  • Direct connection to on-premise computers or Programmable Logic
  • Wireless streaming of raw data to a secured gateway (optional)
  • Customizable dashboards to monitor IoT system health and real-time values
  • Smart Power management for low power consumption when using the battery
