In 2013, after more than 5 years of research and development, I-care™ launched its Wi-care™ product range, cutting edge of technology vibration and temperature sensors equiped with wireless transmitters, supported by I-see™, the web data treatment portal also developed internally.
Since their launch, Wi-care™ and I-see™ have never stopped improving and are now among the best solutions in the market for 4.0 maintenance.
The Wi-care™ transmitter is the key element of Wi-care™ products allowing the assets remote measure. Wi-care™ products are arranged on the various control points. These wireless cases are going to be controlled according to the parameters entered the I-see™ platform.
As part of wireless device it is obvious that the autonomy of the battery and the management of the internal energy are very important points. This part was the subject to a quite particular attention during our developments and we are particularly proud of the result obtained from 5 years of autonomy for a single battery. This tool can thus allow to control equipment in distant hazardous places or equipment that need a closer follow-up.
The communication distance of a sensor can reach outdoors a distance of 100 meters. As this distance may be insufficient according to your applications, we developed a new tool that complete our transmitter, the range extender.
We cared about real distances of transmission in the industrial environment. The Wi-care™ communication touch upon approximately a hundred meters. To constantly improve the Wi-care™ technology and cover a maximum of situations, the I-care™ engineers developed a repeater of signal. The latter is going to increase the reach of communication of Wi-care™. The reach of communication between 2 range extenders can achieve outdoors a distance of 1.000 meters adapted to all types of industry. Furthermore, range extenders can be installed in series allowing to cover the largest part of your problems.
The third part of the Wi-care™ system is composed of a central processing unit called gateway. The gateway represents the link between the hardware part and the cloud where will be sent, stored and processed the data. It represents the central processing unit of the system allowing to command the various transmitters as well as the created network.
Once the measure is made by the transmitter, this one is directly sent to the gateway. The first calculations of global levels will be already realized at this stage. SMS alerts will be sent if it needs to be. As soon as possible, by internet connection, the results will be transferred on our I-see™ servers. The information will be then accessible by every people authorized by a secured access of login and password. Our remote analyses department is naturally available for any support 24/24, 7/7.
By using Wi-care™ as wireless monitoring system, ISO-certified engineers (level 3) team, remotely supplies a complete analysis with wise advice on the health of machines as well as on the recommendations of improvements.
What is the purpose of collecting information and data in an easy and efficient way if it costs you hours to read it, analyse it and share it? Just share the login information with the concerned people and discuss about the data, the spectrum, the KPI of the equipment, the plant, the country, or the whole company.
Wi-care™ and I-see™ compound a perfect match to offer you an easy plus and play solution. Plug your Wi-care™ on your equipment and play I-see™ on your device to visualize and analyse your data. Do not care anymore about the software installation and update, I-see™ stands by you wherever you are, whenever you need.
Predictive maintenance is not only about vibration and temperature collected by Wi-care. Other mechanical assets may request lubrication, infrared thermography or ultrasound analysis. Therefore I-see allows you to import multiple predictive technologies data to centralize the information and the predictive diagnosis of every mechanical asset.
