ADI公司收购Test Motors,扩展面向工业4.0的机器状态监控方案

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) 宣布收购 Test Motors,这是一家专门从事电机和发电机预测性维护的公司。Test Motors 总部位于西班牙巴塞罗那,提供的产品和服务可以提前检测出电机故障,避免影响生产进程,并就如何以及何时进行维护提供建议。此次收购扩展了ADI状态监控解决方案组合,能够实现在停机和灾难性故障发生之前识别设备故障。

此次收购是ADI公司继2018年成功收购 OtoSense 后在工业领域的又一举措。OtoSense 是一家初创企业,开发了学习和识别声音或振动的“传感解译”软件,能够在问题变得严重之前确定工厂机器或汽车发动机中的潜在问题。OtoSense 的人工智能 (AI) 平台专用于传感解译,并支持对任何资产进行监控,不受位置限制。ADI公司计划将 OtoSense 的软件与 Test Motors 的监控功能相结合来创建解决方案,通过捕获更广泛的潜在故障为机器提供更先进、全面的健康状况监测。 

“机器维护在很大程度上依赖于经验丰富的技术人员和工程师,他们能够检测和诊断可能导致意外停机的问题。但是,随着需要维护的机器数量快速增长,受过训练的专业人员开始供不应求。” ADI公司自动化和能源事业部副总裁 Kevin Carlin 指出:“通过收购 Test Motors 和 OtoSense,ADI的状态监控方案能够为客户提供具备完整的早期异常检测功能的系统,从而解决这一专业资源短缺的难题,避免意外且代价高昂的机器停机。”

Test Motors 团队将加入ADI的自动化和能源事业部,并作为关键技术小组工作。收购的财务条款未予披露。

“我们很高兴能成为ADI公司的一员,与ADI的工业技术专家团队一起共事,”Test Motors 前首席执行官 Emili Valero 表示:“技术和专业知识的强强联合将助力我们开发新一代状态监控解决方案,这些解决方案将大大延长电动和非电动旋转类机器的设备寿命,并大量节省成本,从而造福于企业和消费者。”

ADI状态监控解决方案 

状态监控并不是一种单一技术,而是结合了技术和方案的系统级解决方案。借助ADI公司的技术产品系列,这些解决方案在MEMS(微机电系统)传感器、灵活的信号调理和数据转换技术、带电源组合的处理和通信解决方案等方面都有所突破,从而可提供经优化的无线和有线状态监控解决方案。将这些技术集成到可部署的解决方案中需要专业领域的知识,包括资产和应用见解、机械设计和附件等考量因素,以及将信息转换为诊断算法的能力。
