Windrock, a Dover Energy Automation (DEA) company specializing in monitoring and optimizing reciprocating assets, is pleased to announce the launch of its new IIoT enabled Spotlight Monitoring System. Unveiled at a special launch party during the 2017 Turbomachinery & Pumps Symposium (TPS), the new Spotlight Monitoring System is an automated, real-time IIoT solution specifically designed to elevate the collection and analysis of predictable performance data to the next level.
Leveraging IIoT principles to deliver insights into the health and performance of critical assets, the new Spotlight Monitoring System is a plug-and-play solution that utilizes four magnet-mounted PUCs (Peripheral Universal Connection) to acquire high-speed rotating data. These PUCs are connected to the Spotlight Controller, considered the central nervous system, via a single cable. The Spotlight Controller then sends the data over to a Microsoft® Azure hosted cloud via gateway, where Windrock Enterprise, an intuitive data visualization software proprietary to Windrock, provides actionable insights and uncovers trends concerning the health of the entire fleet of assets.
“As one of the world’s largest trade shows dedicated to rotating equipment, TPS was a perfect venue to debut the new Spotlight Monitoring System,” said Steve McNair, Director of Product Management and Marketing at Windrock. “Having the ability to cost-effectively collect and analyze performance data from assets in the field is critical for reliability engineers and asset managers. With Spotlight, this data is not only collected and analyzed, but the information can also be transferred directly to the palm of your hand in real time. No other product available on the market today can provide the measurable advantages as Spotlight, and providing on-demand visibility of your entire fleet of assets is a real game changer.”
In addition, Windrock’s Spotlight Monitoring System allows for tiered services to enable digital transformation. Customers can use the powerful monitoring tier to get complete visibility and then augment it with algorithmic analyses from Windrock Enterprise. The premium “Optimize” tier also offers full service optimization advisories from Windrock Subject Matter Experts.
