ITT’s i-ALERT2 Equipment Health Monitor is a Bluetooth Smart-enabled equipment health monitor that allows customers to identify potential problems before the machines become costly failures. It tracks vibration, temperature and run-time hours and wirelessly syncs the data with a smartphone or tablet through the i-ALERT2 mobile app.

The i-ALERT2 condition monitor combines the latest in Bluetooth low-energy and sensor technologies commonly used in the newest consumer health and fitness trackers and smart watches. The i-ALERT2 device is the first condition monitor to successfully integrate these technologies into an industrial package in a small footprint [2.24 in. (L) by 1.54 in. (W) by 1.04 in. (H)] which is half the size of a credit card. It is engineered and rated for use in a wide range of industrial environments. It is chemical resistant, rated for extreme temperatures (-40 to 183 F) and is rated to operate in environments with explosive gases, dust and fibers.

With 24/7 monitoring, a wireless range of up to 100 ft and the ability to scan multiple i-ALERT2 devices at once with a mobile device, customers will be able to quickly and safely inspect multiple pieces of equipment and be alerted of potential problems before they become critical failures. Through the i-ALERT2 mobile app, customers can now view real-time and historical data, diagnostic information and machine records. This provides them with the data necessary to make informed decisions. Customers can now spend less time collecting data and more time solving problems.
