Sushi Sensor – a wireless solution for industrial IoT.
Yokogawa offers Sushi Sensor, a wireless solution for industrial IoT. It can provide the environment that continuously monitor equipment conditions with multiple types of sensors for the realisation of Asset Performance Management (APM) which is an activity to deliver maximum value to the equipment owned by the customers, and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM).
To improve the availability ratio and profitability of plants, timely identification of health conditions and efficient maintenance of aged equipment are required. Various sensing technologies are needed to monitor conditions and maintain diverse equipment. In order to maintain equipment distributed across a plant efficiently with limited man-hours, quantification of measurement data and automated data acquisition and storage systems are required. Sushi Sensor measures vibration, temperature, and pressure as data for maintaining equipment. The measured sensor data are stored in host systems such as the cloud or the on-premises via wireless communication.
Since it complies with LoRaWAN, which is a low-power wide-area (LPWA) network for long-distance communication, the sensors can be deployed anywhere in a plant and covers a vast area. Also, it has environmental resistance features to support heavy-duty use (IP66/67, explosion proof).
Users can identify equipment conditions by trend monitoring in the cloud or the on-premises, and then plan and perform maintenance efficiently, tailored to the equipment conditions. Comprehensive monitoring the conditions of the whole plant helps create priorities of equipment risks and maximise investment in equipment maintenance in a balanced manner.
Yokogawa can utilise its expanded Sushi Sensor portfolio to detect equipment anomalies by the off-the shelf AI-enabled product to process the collected data. Moving forward, the company will leverage AI to enable the use of equipment data for such applications as failure prediction and maintenance decision support.
