In this tutorial, you'll build a condition monitoring dashboard for monitoring data from vibration sensors in real time. You can attach the sensors to any machine and expand with more sensors or other types of sensors.
This tutorial will use data from a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) connected to vibration sensors. The PLC reports the X and Y values from the vibration sensors that indicate how much the monitored equipment is moving. The dashboard will show various states as the equipment operates.
Vibration and other condition sensors can be used to make informed maintenance decisions and predict when maintenance will be needed to avoid downtime.
This tutorial shows how PubNub can be used to transmit sensor values in real time. For more industrial or IoT use cases and strategies, such as dashboards similar to this one, our solution architect and support teams can help.
