Sensor self-monitoring during setup and operation

The fabrication processes in the timber industry generate wood shavings and dust that settle on the surface of the sensors. Smart sensors come with intelligent diagnostic functions, e.g., self-monitoring, disturbance variable detection, and automated switching threshold adjustment. These make predictive maintenance possible, which improves plant availability and reduces machine downtimes.
