ASD Healthcare Delivers True Connected Care
ASD Healthcare’s Cubixx connected refrigeration solution was initially aimed at larger hospitals and pharmacies, utilising Wi-Fi or local area networks (LAN) for connectivity. With phase two, Cubixx would be rolled out to smaller practices and patients homes. The issue for ASD Healthcare was finding a single connectivity provider to cover the entire U.S., and facilitate international expansion.

Machine Condition MonitoringEarly predictions on equipment malfunctions and service maintenance can be automatically scheduled ahead of an actual part failure by installing sensors inside equipment to monitor and send reports.Machine condition monitoring is used to determine the condition of a machine with the intent to forecast mechanical wear and failure. The predicted data provides health information about the machine and helps to predict machinery failure. The monitoring equipment tracks changes in temperature, vibration, and output of machines in order to detect an imbalance, corrosion, wear, misalignment, sediment build-up, or poorly lubricated parts.Condition monitoring has gained importance in line with increased company focus on productivity and asset utilization.
