HID Global makes it easier to track, monitor equipment

Tracking and monitoring equipment can be a challenge, particularly in large facilities or facilities that have been expanded and remodeled over the years. Critical equipment can go missing, only to be found tucked away in an obscure place. Equipment in difficult to access locations can be tough to monitor.

The Internet of Things can help overcome those challenges, and HID Global’s new Location Services for Item Management and HID Condition Monitoring Services are at the forefront.

HID Location Services for Item Management monitors the location and movement of equipment. Use cases for Location Services for Item Management include locating a ladders, carts, and emergency hospital equipment. Facility managers can use geo-fences to trigger alerts monitoring the movement of equipment as well.

HID Condition Monitoring Services provides real-time analysis of equipment performance, making it possible to optimize performance, predict failure and identify potential issues. Use cases for HID Conditioning Monitoring Services include vending machines, conveyor belts, heating and cooling systems, medical equipment, and other equipment.

The offerings provide a simple solution for streamlining the daily operations in hospitals, manufacturing facilities, and a wide range of industrial organizations requiring instant, actionable data to optimize workflow, processes and equipment efficiency, according to a release from HID Global.

“Every day, organizations seek to address pressing concerns around the misuse, tampering and theft of assets, as well as unforeseen equipment downtime. HID’s latest solutions make it possible to quickly locate items, provide valuable equipment data to optimize equipment efficiency, and react quickly to critical events or instantly know when equipment fails,” said Mark Robinton, Director of Strategic Innovation with HID Global in the release. “Our new condition monitoring services enable operations teams to move from a reactive or prescriptive stance to a more knowledge-based, predictive model that makes it possible to receive advanced warning of issues with equipment and proactively plan for scheduled maintenance based on algorithms and data analytics.”

The tools leverage Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology connected by a cloud-based Bluvision solution. The system is fully integrated, making set up efficient and cost-effective.
