Features and Benefits
The MEMS-based Wireless Vibration Monitoring Platform enables users to:
- Rapidly deploy a wireless solution to a machine or test setup
- Evaluate ADI MEMS sensor technology for vibration monitoring
- Evaluate ADI SmartMESH technology for industrial wireless sensing
- Accelerate their asset monitoring and solution development
The Wireless Vibration Monitoring Platform is a system evaluation solution for a wireless signal chain for MEMS-accelerometer based vibration monitoring. The system solution combines mechanical attach, hardware, firmware, and PC software to enable rapid deployment and evaluation of a single-axis vibration monitoring solution. The module can be directly attached to a motor or fixture, either magnetically or via a stud. It can also be combined with other modules on the same wireless mesh network to provide a broader picture with multiple sensor nodes, as part of a Condition Based Monitoring (CbM) system.
The CbM hardware signal chain consists of a single-axis ADXL1002 accelerometer mounted to the base of the module. The output of the ADXL1002 is read into the ADuCM4050 low power microcontroller where it is buffered, transformed to frequency domain and streamed to the SmartMESH IP mote. From the SmartMESH chip it is wirelessly streamed to the SmartMESH IP Manager. The manager connects to a PC and visualization and saving of the data can take place. Data is displayed as raw time-domain data, and FFT data. Additional summary statistics information on the time-aggregated data are available. The full Python code of the PC-side GUI, as well as the C firmware deployed to the module is made available to enable customer adaptation.
