With all of the technology available today, it surprises me how many businesses still rely on reactive maintenance practices to keep their systems running. I understand things like IIoT and the Cloud can sound like techy, buzzword, hassles to many people, but what if I told you that access to predictive maintenance was as easy as a Wi-Fi connection?

Smart HPU Demo  | Summary



PumpMD by IoT Diagnostics


If the pump is the heart of a hydraulic system, PumpMD is the monitor that warns you of incoming cardiac arrest before it's life-threatening. 

PumpMD is the only device engineered to track the pressure and temperature of the case drain of hydraulic piston pumps. The generated data can be viewed in real-time, as well as sent to the Cloud, to generate easy-to-read, pump health diagnostics. Together with custom alerts, these reports provide predictive maintenance for the heart of your system.

Retrieving Your Data

There are two ways to easily collect process data from the PumpMD.

Number one is wireless. PumpMD uses Wi-Fi to connect to the IoT Experience Cloud Service. Here, you'll find a graphical view and logging of your data.

Number two is through two 0-10 volt analog signals. These signals are directed to the M12 Connector and can be added to any PLC or monitoring device.


Key Benefits

Real-Time Monitoring - View current and historical data at any time.

Custom Alerts - Receive instant notifications on your pump's health, with adjustable thresholds.

Zero Pressure Drop - There are no moving parts, so it does not affect your device pressure.

Pump Efficiency Reports - PumpMD ranks your pumps by efficiency, helping you prioritize repairs.

Easy Wireless Connection - Does it get more straightforward than Wi-Fi?
