Our partner PLCSystems OOO together with TIUS OOO successfully implemented a project for wireless automated monitoring of vibration and temperature parameters at the section of the rolling tables of the rolling mill of the sheet-rolling workshop of «Severstal». This solution was built on our equipment, using the technologies of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the LANTANSoft LoRaParsing parsing module for LoRaWAN® networks developed by «PLCSystems».

The main objectives of the project were:
  • Provide remote monitoring of vibration and temperature parameters at the section of the rolling table of the rolling mill;
  • Provide remote monitoring of temperature and flooding in the electrical room of the powerhouse basement, temperature on the control equipment of the main drive of the rolling stand;
  • Reduce labor costs for obtaining data and reduce the time required to walk around the territory of a sheet-rolling shop by operational personnel;
  • Provide a forecast of failures and breakdowns of rolling mill equipment and control equipment of the main drive based on the data obtained;
  • Increase the efficiency of analysis and planning of rolling mill operating modes;
  • Provide operational personnel with access to information and automate the generation of reports on the operation of dynamic rolling mill equipment.
Result of IoT using is an increase of efficiency of processes monitoring and managing and in the end the profitability increasing.
Equipping production with temperature and vibration sensors allows you to receive information in real time and achieve the following results:
  • Reduce the response time to unforeseen breakdowns and accidents of rolling mill roller tables and control equipment of the main drive by 3 times;
  • Provide pre-maintenance analytics based on the analysis of the received data;
  • Eliminate the need to bypass flooding facilities in the rolling mill.
To manage the LoRaWAN® network in this project, a single LANTANSoft LoRaParsing server is used, which ensures the processing of all data from the monitoring objects and integration with the client's corporate DBMS.
