Process 100x less data using analog edge processing for predictive and preventative maintenance
The Aspinity RAMPTM chip delivers a more intelligent, lower-power, always-on edge processing strategy for handling the massive amounts of vibration data that are collected for accurate predictive maintenance and condition monitoring of:
Current vibration monitoring systems digitize and process 1000’s of FFT datapoints to see if a failure has occurred, but in fact, many types of faults can be detected using just 10’s of relevant datapoints (e.g. fault-frequency/energy pairs, RMS levels, etc.). The RAMP chip is able to extract those important datapoints directly from raw analog sensor data and continuously monitor for faults at near-zero power. When the first sign of a failure is indicated, the RAMP chip wakes up the downstream digital system so additional actions can be taken, such as performing a detailed FFT for a more deeply informed decision or requesting that maintenance staff are sent to the field.
By intelligently monitoring the most important datapoints while they are still analog and waking the higher-power system only when failures are detected, the RAMP chip keeps the power-on and processing time of the digital system to a minimum, significantly extending the battery life of remote sensor nodes used for vibration monitoring.
