The self-powered, wireless, magnetic sensor is placed on an asset to track its location and utilization. We monitor the vibration data, it is then transmitted to our cloud using LoRa, where we use machine learning to understand the unique 'signature' of each machine.
Utilisation (on, off, idle)
Place it on the outside of the equipment. Placing it horizontally and as close to the motor / engine the more detailed the analysis.
Yes, as the sensors are magnetic one can remove and re-apply to another machine at anytime.
No, there is no invasive installation, simply turn on the sensor and place it on the equipment.
Yes, they work on all equipment.
Yes, as there is no invasive installation it can easily be placed on rental equipment.
The sensors are OEM & manufacturer agnostic.
Simply turn it on and place it on the equipment.
About as big as a pack of cards. 11.5 x 8 x 3.5cm
We will get an alert when the battery is nearing end of life and at that point we will send you a new sensor and specify which equipment you need to replace.
-40°C to +60°C temperature. IP 68 rated.
They can withstand up to 10g of force.
Some areas have a vast LoRa network coverage and the sensors communicate directly on this network, negating the need for a gateway. E.g., Netherlands & Belgium have country wide coverage.
Depends on the size of the site, typically the gateway has the range of more than 1KM.
A minimum radius of 1KM.
The gateways have a built-in SIM card which communicates via cellular network. All you need to do, is turn on a gateway and the sensors will immediately start communicating with it. Chat to us if you don’t have cellular connectivity, we have alternative options.
Somewhere with a good line of site to the equipment. If you are tracking surface equipment, then the higher the better.
Yes, they need a power source but can also run off solar panels.
The sensors can store data for up to a month and if there is a break in transmission the gateway will instruct the sensor to resent the data when back in range.
This can be tailored to suit your needs - users can get automated daily / weekly / monthly alerts.
Results are seen almost immediately, and the model takes about a day to get to 100%.
We can import that data so that the MachineMax dashboard have all your equipment data in one spot.
• There are a few options
• Log into www.machinemax.com
• Use our API's to publish the data to your digital ecosystem
• Download csv data
Yes, we have a standard set of API's and you can download the data in CSV format.
Connectivity is required however intermittent connectivity is OK too - chat to us for more information
LoRa is a low powered, long range bi-directional communication protocol, specifically designed to connect battery operated 'things' to the internet. For more information check out https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/docs/lorawan/
This depends on the country
Europe: EU863-870 & EU433
China: CN470-510 & CN779-787

Absolutely, we can send you the relevant number of sensors & gateways with instructions on where best to place the gateway.
The gateway needs to be placed in a central position with maximum coverage, place the sensors on the equipment and let us know which sensor is on which equipment - that's it.
Yes of course, we offer a 2-week free trial with no obligations. We will send you a gateway with 5 sensors for you to pilot for two weeks.
No, all you need to do is place the gateway in a central position with maximum coverage, place the sensors on the equipment and let us know which sensor is on which equipment. You will immediately start to see the data on the dashboards which are intuitive to use and self-explanatory.
It is a month subscription model with no upfront hardware of installation costs. The contract can be cancelled at anytime
