At manufacturing sites, sudden equipment failure leads to unplanned downtime and has a major impact on the productivity of the entire plant. Condition monitoring devices from OMRON combine powerful sensing technology with algorithms to detect abnormal conditions. These devices can be easily attached to existing equipment.The new K7TM from OMRON enables automatic measurement of the appropriate resistance value*1 of the heater while in operation, and visualises the deterioration tendency of the heater. By accumulating rate-of-change data of resistance values for each heater, maintenance activities can be timed in advance according to the heater status. This minimises production downtime associated with regular heater maintenance. Reducing the thermal energy needed during a restart also helps to minimise the energy loss from the heaters.As the new K7TM can constantly measure the electric power consumed by each heater, combined with temperature data, it helps to detect even the slightest signs of abnormal conditions in the facility. This contributes to maintaining the optimum conditions for ensuring product quality. Sudden heater failures can be eliminated, while reducing energy consumption in production, contributing to CO2 reduction.Main features and benefits of the K7TM series:1. Easy to retrofit onto existing equipment 2. Automatic measurement of the resistance of the heater during equipment operation to determine the deterioration tendency of the heater3. Reduce dependency on experienced maintenance staff4. Possibility to collect measurement data remotely using network connections5. Contributing to quality maintenance and energy reduction For more information, please visit: https://industrial.omron.eu/en/products/k7tm-a2.
