With the solution approach of wireless fieldbus communication the DATAEAGLE radio technology of Schildknecht AG
has become known worldwide in countless applications over decades. This has made Schildknecht a "data transport
company" on a global scale, long before exactly such data transport became a prerequisite for IIoT solutions. In
many discussions and projects with users their similar concepts of an IoT approach became apparent, from which
the IoT-ready-to-use approach was developed: The DATAEAGLE Condition Monitoring System provides a quick and good
introduction to condition monitoring and Industry 4.0.
Immediately ready for operation
Elena Eberhardt, Marketing and Business Development Manager at Schildknecht, outlines the new concept as
follows: “In the interest of the users, we have designed our CMS as a complete system, which can be installed
and ready for operation within a very short time. It consists of the compact Bosch multi-sensor CISS for a total
of eight measured variables with Bluetooth signal transmission, our IoT Edge Gateway with integrated eSIM card
for global connectivity, and measurement data evaluation and display on our portal dashboard. While some want to
have the relevant data ‘transported’ into a cloud for further analysis, others see their solution in a direct
transmission to a control system with the possibility of an immediate reaction.
The DATAEAGLE CMS is therefore
available in three versions: with interface to a control system, local dashboard
or cloud dashboard.”
Condition Monitoring System ensuring reliable delivery
For Murrelektronik, a large automation technology company, unconditional delivery reliability is an extremely
important element of its business model: Late deliveries would cause the customer's plant to shut down with
The company therefore regularly seeks and tests measures to make the internal
product flow from the central warehouse to shipping as smooth as possible. This also includes the operational
safety of the motor driving the conveyor belt that transports the parts inside warehouse to be ready for
shipping. We chose the sensor because it can be used very universally with eight measured variables and fits
very well into our device concept with its Bluetooth interface.
At Murrelektronik, the multi-sensor is used
to measure magnetic flux, vibration, and temperature, for example, and communicates via Bluetooth to the
dashboard via the gateway.
