Remote, machine health monitoring services reduce the need for on-site visits.
Augury introduced new features and services for machine health monitoring in industrial facilities, the company announced in a May 6, 2020 press release. The company added guided self-installation capabilities so customers can implement machine health monitoring in new facilities even when access may be restricted. This feature allows customers to install Augury monitoring components themselves, guided remotely by Augury personnel.
“Our customers are telling us that machine health and remote collaboration matter more than ever to them, and they want to expand their deployment of digital solutions in these challenging times,” said Saar Yoskovitz, CEO of Augury, in the press release.
New features include customized notifications and Threads Tagging, which works similarly to other collaboration tools by allowing users to notify team members or subject matter experts if they want their attention on a certain question or issue. The conversations are preserved in the platform to help users in future similar situations and as a way to share best practices across the entire team, the company said in the press release.
The Early Insights feature uses artificial intelligence to deliver alerts more quickly and provide richer context around the alert to help solve problems more quickly. According to the press release, the feature helps reduce risk for machines that are degrading quickly.
Automated connectivity alerts, extended battery life, and power over ethernet for monitoring components eliminates gaps in monitoring while reducing the need for on-site visits by employees and contractors.
