Smart Monitoring, Smarter Maintenance

Breathing Easy with Machine Vitals

Machine VitalsTM, part of the Sensei® IIoT Network, is a condition monitoring device designed to track several key equipment conditions, such as temperature, pressure, relative humidity, and more, providing a holistic view of machinery health. When used in conjunction with Watchdog Desiccant Breathers, Machine Vitals can significantly enhance the effectiveness of your maintenance strategy. By continuously monitoring the conditions that desiccant breathers are designed to mitigate—specifically moisture contamination—Machine Vitals offers a data-driven approach to assess the breather's performance. 

This synergy allows for precise determination of when a breather is nearing the end of its useful life, based on real-time data. This not only ensures that machinery is protected from moisture but also optimizes the replacement schedule for Watchdog Desiccant Breathers, ensuring they are only replaced when necessary. The integration of Machine Vitals with Watchdog Desiccant Breathers offers a proactive maintenance solution that keeps equipment running smoothly, reduces downtime, and extends the lifespan of both the machinery and the breathers themselves.
