Predictive Maintenance and Machine Learning

LBA predictive diagnostic technology, which uses vibration and ultrasonic sensors to monitor the health of equipment. The predictive vibration technology uses a smartphone to “listen” to equipment and detect machine malfunctions before they happen. When combined with a planned maintenance program, this predictive technology creates a powerful way to extend equipment’s useful life, eliminate unanticipated outages and reduce the long-term cost of equipment ownership. Predictive analysis is executed in real time, results are displayed in seconds, and our clients receive a graphical report detailing the analysis and results.

The learning-based algorithms suggest what is wrong and what a technician can do to repair the machine. Vibration analysis detects and predicts more than 90 malfunctions before they become catastrophic. This continuous monitoring system is key to optimizing critical HVAC systems and streamlining effective power usage.
