IIoT Smart Devices Monitor Asset Health, Reduce Downtime

Grace Engineered Products’ GraceSense Predictive Maintenance System is a complete end-to-end solution featuring wireless sensors, configurable hardware architecture, and an intuitive user interface. The system is designed to curb unplanned downtime and provide a swift return on investment.


The initial product offering consists of several unique products and a web-based user interface. The battery-powered GraceSense Vibration & Temperature Node can be deployed onto any rotating equipment to predict anomalies before they turn into catastrophic failures. The battery-powered GraceSense Temperature Node monitors the surface temperature of any asset. Lastly, the GraceSense Panel-Mount/CloudGate collects data wirelessly from the nodes and transmits to the remote cloud using either an LTE or plant Wi-Fi connection.

Analog Devices ADIS16500/05/07 Precision Miniature MEMS IMU Available Now from Digi-Key

The Analog Devices’ ADI ADIS16500/05/07 precision miniature MEMS IMU includes a triaxial gyroscope and a triaxial accelerometer. Each inertial sensor in the MEMS IMU combines with signal conditioning that optimizes dynamic performance.


In addition to the wireless nodes, GraceSense also offers a complementary non-conductive temperature monitoring device called the Hot Spot Monitor (HSM). HSM is designed to detect the temperature abnormalities in electrical equipment such as Switchgear, MCCs, Transformers, and Bus-bars using bolted connections.  A single HSM can be deployed to monitor up to eighteen critical connections within critical electrical assets.


With the nodes and/or HSM deployed and operational, the GraceSense Maintenance Hub serves as a secure remote user interface for configuring the devices and monitoring their analytics. When the monitored equipment parameters exceed a preset threshold value, the Maintenance Hub issues SMS or email alerts to maintenance personnel with step-by-step remediation instructions.
