ENVIRA IoT develops projects for structural health monitoring in industry in order to study mechanical and physicochemical damage in industrial facilities. The objective is to diagnose in time damages that affect the integrity of the structures and determine if repair or reinforcement actions are required to avoid or delay their degradation
The structural health monitoring solution in industrial facilities allows monitoring metal structures in which special attention should be paid to the appearance of corrosion or deformations, and concrete structures, where the focus is on the existence of possible cracks, cracks or chipping.
The system includes:
The monitoring system, based on IoT technology, is conducted in very short periods of time, thus providing real-time information to make the decision making quicker and closer to the moment.
Mechanical damage has their origin in external or internal structural, constructive or utilization forces.
Taking into account the present and/or future damages that can become a hazard for the stability of the buildings or cause any harm to their users, sensors are set up in the relevant points to:
One of the most common physical damage in industrial facilities is the appearance of humidity. Regarding chemical damage, the most known and visually evident are oxidation, corrosion, efflorescence and chemical injuries caused by living organisms (plants, insect pests, chemical attack by excrement and fungi).
With the solution for structural health monitoring of buildings, physicochemical damage can also be studied by installing a sensor network that monitors variables such as temperature, humidity, dilatations, corrosion, molds or oxides.
The datalogger collects the data monitored and sends it, via internet, to an Internet service by means of M2M standard communication protocols such as REST, MQTT, which store it in a database for future references. The period for sending the data can be adjusted according to the client’s preferences.
The flexibility of the firmware displayed enables the equipment to be directly integrated with any kind of IoT platform or control center, both cloud-based and local ones, through communication protocols (format of messages, communication and transport networks, M2M networks) completely adapted to each case.
Communication with the optional communication modules at ENVIRA IoT are wireless, with technologies such as 3g, LTE, LORA® and soon Narrow-Band.
Thanks to this structural health monitoring system for industry, remote supervision is possible, the information stored can be assessed and the cracks can be acted upon with foresight. In fact, a warning system can be set up so that, in case the threshold levels or definable percentages are surpassed, a warning is sent to the users of the system by e-mail or SMS.
With this data you get:
This monitoring system can be applied in any type of industrial structure such as:
In these structures, special attention must be paid to:
Open solution, integrable with external developments at any level (device, connectivity, CLOUD or user application).
An unlimited number of devices can be included in future extensions.
High-reliable and available data in real time.
Complete adaptation and integration with different types of buildings.
Creation of data history.
