An open standard-based scheme for sensor and process level information for condition monitoring applications via internet

Automated Condition Monitoring (ACM) has become a necessity for modem day electromechanical systems. It is used not only to increase the efficiency of a system but also to avoid costly unscheduled breakdowns. Communication systems play a fundamental role in the implementation of ACM. At present, the...
