Condition Monitoring

In today’s industrial landscape, condition monitoring is crucial for maintaining the efficiency and reliability of machinery and equipment. By continuously tracking the operational status of assets through various sensors, organizations can predict failures, schedule maintenance, and optimize performance. The core of effective condition monitoring lies in handling vast amounts of time-series data — data points collected sequentially over time, which reflect the state and behavior of equipment.

Data Challenges

  1. Volume and Velocity: Industrial environments generate massive volumes of data at high speeds. Sensors and IoT devices continuously produce data points, leading to a rapid influx of time-series data that traditional databases struggle to manage.
  2. Data Latency: Data latency in condition monitoring poses significant challenges by delaying the detection of anomalies and trends, and compromising real-time monitoring and decision-making.
  3. Scalability: As the number of monitored assets increases, the database must scale seamlessly without degradation in performance.
