French data management firm Eviden is using predictive management software from Samotics for energy utility monitoring,
The strategic partnership between Dutch developer Samotics and Eviden, which is part of the Atos group, will create a comprehensive remote asset monitoring system for global industrial companies that delivers advanced data analytics to drive energy-efficient operations and reduce energy waste.
The Eviden Intelligent Asset Management portfolio will add the Samotics SAM4 tool to provide a highly accurate, easily scalable, cost-effective, and quick to implement end-to-end remote monitoring system for industries such as water and wastewater and oil and gas.
The non-intrusive sensors that are installed in the motor control cabinet to monitor hard-to-reach operational environments where the equipment is either hard-to-access such as borehole pumps in the water or in harsh conditions.
The tool provides advanced and automated data analytics to detect mechanical degradation, misalignment, electrical faults and other equipment failures in advance, as well as provide real-time performance insights to spot inefficient use of equipment.
This allows companies to eliminate unplanned downtime, optimize performance, increase energy efficiency and reduce waste.
“The industry sectors, in particular energy & utilities, are characterized by legacy assets in need of upgrade, modernization, and digitalization due to societal, regulatory, and investor pressures.
