Apollo and Asystom form technology alliance

We are pleased to have partnered with Asystom SAS, a specialist in universal smart monitoring for predictive maintenance, to form a formal alliance to provide customers with an integrated asset management solution.

This will see our industry-agnostic data management solution, Apollo KnowHow™, which helps clients manage their asset integrity efficiently from anomalies to work planning, through inspection, fabric maintenance and reviewing and reporting integrating with Asysoms product, AsystomPredict.

The Asystom solution monitors and analyses any rotating machine and helps to predict anomalies wirelessly and non-intrusively with a simple installation. Sensors communicate through a LoRa network and data are encrypted end to end.

Asystom’s ATEX/IETEx sensors monitor not only heat and vibration, but uniquely ultrasound too, meaning customers have the earliest possible alert of drift (before any damage has occurred). They run on standard batteries (so no need for additional wiring), for up to 10 years without intervention. An additional advantage of Long Range is that due to its low-frequency wireless transmission, the sensors can be positioned up to 1km away from the LoRA gateway.

Data is processed at the Edge on the sensors and then the information is transferred and stored in the cloud through an encrypted secure network and then accessible through Apollo KnowHow™.

Right now, especially, customers are looking for flexible solutions to meet the changing needs of their organizations

said Douglas Sinclair, Digital Applications Manager at Apollo.

The Asystom solution allows industry customers to increase their production by up to 25%, by predicting failures of equipment and transmitting all data in real-time and accurately to the Apollo KnowHow™ system. The information and alerts are then presented on an easy-to-use dashboard, making it easy for our clients to see their data.

Adrian McLellan, Managing Consultant at Asytom also recounted his excitement about the partnership,

Apollo KnowHow™ is a fantastic tool; you can immediately see the benefit it brings to clients. Most of ours say their biggest issue is finding the correct data. By collecting the data via AsystomPredict and delivering it to Apollo KnowHow™, clients are able to find the data and have it presented clearly, saving them huge sums of time and money. Together, this offers something cutting edge to the industry.
