Infineon Technologies has released the new XENSIV Predictive Maintenance Evaluation Kit. It was co-developed with the IoT service provider Klika Tech and is powered by the cloud service provider AWS to offer an end-to-end solution for customers.
The kit includes hardware (sensors, microcontroller, and embedded security), software as well as CloudFormation templates.
“Together with AWS and Infineon we assembled an end-to-end HVACR predictive maintenance evaluation kit and anomaly detection solution that enables building operators to evaluate features to proactively respond to issues before they become costly failures,” said Gennadiy Borisov, President and Co-CEO of Klika Tech. “There is now a complete evaluation solution to increase efficiency and reduce system downtime – all in a scalable evaluation platform that can be deployed quickly.”
“With the rise of Smart Buildings, features such as condition monitoring and predictive maintenance become increasingly important to leverage the full potential of intelligent buildings,” said Robert Junker, Head of Emerging Applications at Infineon. “This evaluation kit allows customers to easily evaluate sensor-based condition monitoring and predictive maintenance features in their HVAC systems. Together with our partners, we can now provide the full end-to-end support along their predictive maintenance journey.”
It represents a perfect starting point for quick and easy evaluation of sensor-based condition monitoring and predictive maintenance – proving that Infineon makes the IoT work.
The target applications involve heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment as well as motors, fans, drives, compressors, refrigeration and other components of Smart Buildings.
The software provided fully supports the FreeRTOS kernel. AWS Cloud integration is completed by full AWS CloudFormation templates and a software application stack. A Graphic User Interface (GUI) and basic anomaly detection are also included.
For connectivity, Wi-Fi and Ethernet are integrated on-board, as well as a mikroBUS™ ClickBoard interface for extended connectivity. Multi-account registration is supported with OPTIGA Trust M embedded security solution.
According to IHS Markit, the overall Smart Building market will be worth 17.5 billion USD in 2022. Coming from Smart Factories, predictive maintenance techniques are one of the key features of Smart Buildings.
