Story Better detect machine defects It is known that Condition Monitoring can save maintenance costs. But basic IoT sensors, processing RMS measurements such as the RMS velocity, may detect machine defects when they are audible. This puts the whole IoT monitoring into question. Condition monitoring is known to save unnecessary expenses. But simple IoT sensors that process RMS (Root-Mean-Square) readings can often detect machine defects only when they are audible. This challenges continuous monitoring. However, with better data, machine operators' expectations can be met. Preliminary defect classification can improve anomaly detection.
