IoT-compatible Daikin Hybrid System
Because it is recommended to inspect the air filter of oil cooling unit regularly, it had to be done regardless of the machine’s operating time, and it placed a burden on the worksite.
“IoT” is the abbreviation for “Internet of things”.
Up until now the items connected to the Internet have been information equipment such as PCs, smartphones and tablets, but these days, games, televisions, microwaves, automobiles, and various other “things” have been connected to the Internet. IoT refers to the state where those “various things” are connected to the Internet.
With the hybrid system, it is possible to fetch information including not just hydraulic fluid pressures and flow rates but also internal information about the equipment such as power consumption and motor temperatures.
By accumulating and analyzing the information from these things in a machine (or in the PC in the maintenance room), you can keep tabs on their maintenance times and diagnose failures due to deterioration, enabling reduction of the man hours spent on periodic inspections.
An IoT-compatible hybrid system reduces the waste at the factory site.
