New K6PM Thermal Condition Monitor From Omron Provides Continuous Thermal Monitoring For Industrial Equipment

Industrial automation solutions provider Omron Automation Americas has a new technology to help facilities get closer to the ultimate goal of zero downtime. By providing continuous, remote thermal monitoring of electrical panels and other components, Omron’s K6PM Thermal Condition Monitoring Device lowers the time and cost required for critical equipment inspections and minimizes the risk of unplanned shutdowns.

The number of parts that need monitoring is increasing in today’s highly automated facilities, but a shortage of maintenance engineers is making it harder to keep up with this demand. As a result, industrial facilities are at a higher risk of unexpected downtime as well as serious accidents. Device failures have various causes, most of which lead to overheating and subsequent insulator breakdown.

Using the K6PM, manufacturers can reportedly rest assured that their equipment is being monitored on a continuous basis for any abnormalities resulting from overload, vibration, condensation or other causes. Automated data collection and analysis enables even inexperienced personnel to recognize a potential device failure early on and take action to prevent serious problems. Operators can easily and accurately visualize a panel’s temperature without opening the door.
