ONLINE MONITORING OF RECIP MACHINERY
SPOTLIGHT is an automated, continuous monitoring tool that uses magnet-mounted or epoxied PUCs to record an asset’s operational information which is then transmitted via cellular (4G LTE) technology to a cloud based system to efficiently and reliably monitor the health and performance of essential mechanized equipment.
Each SPOTLIGHT Monitoring System consists of four PUC (Peripheral Universal Connection) modules that are quickly and easily attached to either a compressor or engine. A single cable routes the sensor signals from the PUCs to the Spotlight Controller. The Controller then wirelessly talks to the Gateway where performance data is collected and uploaded to a database, then transmitted to the analyst’s computer, smartphone or other handheld device.
Once the Spotlight system is operational, the PUC Sensors, Controller and Gateway send critical data to specialized interpretive software, where performance and condition-based algorithms perform real-time calculations. Reports on KPl’s and performance alerts can be relayed to the user’s smartphone or other mobile device, anywhere in the world, usually in a matter of minutes.
