Axzon features in Manufacturing Technology Insights magazine’s “Top 10 Industrial IoT Solution Providers – 2018” List
Axzon’s sensor solutions enable continuous temperature monitoring of plant machinery to identify out-of-range operating conditions that require immediate attention. This, in turn, enables predictive maintenance strategies that can greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the risk and costs of unplanned downtime.
AUSTIN, Texas. – September 13, 2018 – Axzon, Inc delivers the first-of-its-kind predictive maintenance solution for Industrial IoT, enabling wireless and battery-free sensing of equipment temperature. Motors and pumps drive conveyors, turbines and other heavy machinery that keep an industrial plant going. Unusual temperature excursions in such equipment is usually indicative of impending failure. If such trends are not detected and acted upon in time, they can cascade into critical equipment failure bringing down the plant’s production line. The associated monetary losses can be prohibitively huge, depending on the length of downtime and the extent of damage.
Axzon’s technology is the strongest when protecting people and equipment.
Shahriar Rokhsaz, CEO and President, Axzon, Inc.
With sensors powered by Axzon’s Smart Passive Sensing™ technology, the temperature at critical locations of plant equipment. Being wireless and battery-free facilitates deployment of our sensors and allows our solution to scale with the demands of the application. The sensors come in a variety of sizes allowing them to ‘go where no sensor has gone before’ resulting in rich, meaningful data. These sensors communicate with a reader, which may be fixed or handheld, at distances up to 9 meters. “We convert raw sensor data into meaningful insights at the edge and then push trusted data to the cloud when appropriate to support deeper analytics or historical perspectives” said Shahriar Rokhsaz, CEO, Axzon.
Based in Austin, Texas, Axzon (formerly RFMicron, Inc) produces end-to-end wireless sensing solutions that bring the Internet of Things (IoT) to industry and businesses in need of real-time business insights into productivity, performance, and environmental threats along their supply chain. Since its founding in 2006, Axzon has led the expansion of sensing capabilities to meet the unique, large-scale demands of businesses whose success depends on knowing more about their operating conditions, including automotive manufacturing, healthcare, predictive maintenance, switchgear, cold-chain and data centers. Axzon’s solutions include wireless Smart Passive Sensors™, SMART Edge™ systems, and other patented and patent-pending industrial IoT solutions.
