Timken Introduces New Wireless Sensor and Condition Monitoring Solution


The Timken Company, a global leader in engineered bearings and industrial motion products, has launched a new wireless sensor and condition monitoring solution to help users detect a failure or major change before it happens through temperature and vibration monitoring.

“Solving challenging application problems is at the core of what we do,” said John Szarka, Vice President Product Management – Engineered Bearings. “Our wireless sensor and monitoring solution can indicate potential performance issues before they happen, saving our customers from experiencing unplanned downtime.”

Initial network set-up for the gateway and sensors is simple and intuitive, allowing for either a WiFi or Ethernet connection. The wireless sensors are designed to be installed into the equipment the user wishes to monitor. Next, temperature and vibration data are transmitted to a gateway receiver through mesh technology. With this technology, sensors can transmit data both directly and through each other, allowing sensors to link to a single gateway receiver over an expanded distance.

The data remains in the user’s control on-premise, enhancing data security. With no recurring fees, users can then visualize, access, and receive alerts about the data through the intuitive dashboard.
