28 March 2022

Regal Rexnord Corporation, a developer of high-efficiency electric motors, power transmission products and industrial powertrains, has unveiled the new Perceptiv Sentry S2100 platform for cost-effective wireless vibration and temperature monitoring. Users, primarily in light duty applications, will benefit from early detection of asset problems for predictive maintenance, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency as well as reduced downtime and maintenance costs.

The Sentry S2100 platform includes monitoring hardware, services, a user dashboard and a mobile application. The general purpose Sentry S2100 platform is a logical addition to the tiered offering of solutions powered by Perceptiv intelligence.

“Our end customers experience challenges in human resources, supply chains, production demands, and unplanned downtime. Plus, asset criticality varies throughout a plant and industry to industry, demanding flexible monitoring options,” said Dan Plach, director of Perceptiv intelligence at Regal Rexnord. “As Regal Rexnord manufactures components that span the complete powertrain and has decades of application and industry knowledge, it is truly an extension of who we are to monitor applications, provide insights, and recommend appropriate actions before issues interrupt production. Our deep understanding of applications and the powertrain domain allows us to monitor customer assets to help increase OEE for improved uptime.”

As part of the tiered offering of solutions powered by Perceptiv intelligence, the Sentry S2100 wireless platform is ideal for general usage throughout an entire facility. It features a lower cost and easier installation than wired units — making it an ideal entry-level option to help meet productivity demands.

The Sentry S2100 sensor is IP67-certified and rated for both indoor and outdoor environments at temperatures from -20° C to 60° C. It is powered by an integrated battery with a 6- to 8-year life that can easily be replaced by customers in the field. The Sentry S2100 sensor is highly scalable. Approximately 20 nodes can be connected to one gateway and can be combined with other sensors in the Perceptiv portfolio to build customized, hybrid solutions across an organization’s total footprint. In addition, the Perceptiv team can configure, install and commission a system tailored to a customer’s specific needs, as well as provide expert monitoring, analysis and recommendations to help customers meet production demands. Automated, wireless data is available 24/7 via the online dashboard, with customizable alerts delivered by both email and text, making monitoring equipment easily accessible, whether being viewed on or off-site.

Perceptiv intelligence delivers smart, digital solutions that have the potential to empower and elevate everything in the Regal Rexnord universe. Perceptiv intelligence provides a seamless customer experience and a path for continuous improvement. Through configuration tools, online selecting and ordering, diagnostics, product performance and real-time remote monitoring to support predictive maintenance — Perceptiv intelligence lets customers proactively see it all and achieve more than ever thought possible.
