Factory automation & control

Factories have seen an infrastructure upgrade driven by the Industry 4.0 or Industrial IoT trends.  This can clearly be seen in intelligent end nodes applications such as condition monitoring for predictive maintenance or smart sensing in field transmitters.

Condition Monitoring & Field Transmitters

The SimpleLink™ MSP432 with precision ADC offers the best condition monitoring and sensing platform to capture sensor data more accurately, analyze data more efficiently, communicate more easily and ultimately make smarter decisions quickly. 

The benefits of using the SimpleLink™ MSP432 for condition monitoring are:

  • Lower system cost (>20%) by leveraging integrated high ( > 14-bit) precision ADC
  • Measuring of wide bandwidth signals from multiple sources with 1MSPS ADC
  • Energy efficient processing in the edge node with DSP libraries
  • Several memory options (up to 2MB) for storing and processing sensor data
  • Wired and wireless communication options supported by the SimpleLink SDK
