the industrial world is evolving fast and we must be open to new solutions in order gain competitiveness.

Ensure full performance of your industrial assets

All the potential of our Technology Platform developed based on artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, cloud computing and big data, whose information is analysed by our electrical engineers.

Take advantage of our Technological Platform's potential, to have efficient and safe machines 
and installations

At SIGMA, we manage the complete process of data capture, recording, analysis and interpretation of electricity.

We carry it out using our own Technology Platform, connected to a minimum number of highly advanced sensors, which provide us the accurate information to deliver practical, understandable and complete reports to achieve the expected equipment efficiency. 

Our technological solution has a great competitive advantage worldwide because the installation is carried out quickly and economically in the existing electrical panel (not on top of motors or near the machines). This advantage makes it possible to analyse any kind of machine or installation no matter where is located, age or size.

SIGMA Monitoring and Analysis:

continuous, accurate and in real time

We carry out amore accurate monitoring than other technological solutions currently available in the global market:

SIGMA monitors the appropriate electrical parameters in each project, continuously andwith the precision required by the customer. It is proven that only with such monitoring, it is possible to identify all the reasons for electrical and even mechanical problems..

In this way, the customer can react immediately without constant human supervision, being aware of the actual energy consumption, providing electrical information and for operational analysis, health and lifetime of the machine. We help you to avoid potential accidents and electrical and operational failures by predicting the behaviour of the equipment. 

SIGMA's technological solution starts providing information from the first day after installation.

SIGMA: DETECTS PROBLEMS + PROTECTS EQUIPMENT + AVOID FAILURES

If you want to know more...

SIGMA's technology includes Condition Monitoring and Health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS), together with edge computing, cloud computing and data capture in real time, high-frequency and high-precision and also, deep advanced analysis. When we settled up the company, our goal was to bring much more to the market, to offer a tech-solution able to ensure efficient and safe equipment, avoiding over costs too.

Some customers, when we are in a Fair, come to visit us and ask for "predictive maintenance" and we always answer them that our tech-solution is useful for a proactive or predictive maintenance but to improve efficiency and safety too.

Let's see why and what is that for?

Everything starts by understanding, what is condition monitoring?

Condition monitoring ( CM) is the process of monitoring a parameter of condition in machinery (vibration, temperature, etc.), in order to identify a significant change which is indicative of a developing fault. It is a major component of predictive maintenance. The use of condition monitoring allows maintenance to be scheduled, or other actions to be taken to prevent consequential damages and avoid its consequences. Condition monitoring has a unique benefit in that conditions that would shorten normal lifespan can be addressed before they develop into a major failure. 

On the other hand,<strong style="font-size: 18px;"> Health and usage monitoring systems</strong> (<strong style="font-size: 18px;">HUMS</strong>) has been used in the market as a generic term given to activities that utilize data collection and analysis techniques to help ensure availability, reliability and safety in Industries. Activities similar to, or sometimes used interchangeably with, HUMS include condition-based maintenance (CBM) and operational data recording (ODR).

The HUMS allowed data to be securely accessed (and stored) in real-time while assets are in service through automatic Wi-Fi uploads to a fleet health monitoring system. ADL uses this information to prevent major breakdowns, better determine maintenance and repair times, and ensure that equipment operate at peak performance and efficiency.

Condition Monitoring together with HUMS provide the following benefits:

  1. Increased Uptime: HUMS allows for efficient maintenance of systems which leads to less unplanned downtime and faster turnaround times.

  2. Reduced Costs: Overall maintenance and operational costs are significantly reduced in both the short- and long-term lifecycle of your applications.

  3. Enhanced Safety: HUMS unit provides an ardent approach to employee safety. It enables companies to avoid accidents by being able to constantly measure the health of their device/system. 

At SIGMAwe have developed a Tech-solution based on the process of monitoring electricityto identify faults, not only in machinery but in any kind of electrical equipment. <strong style="font-size: 18px;">Electricity</strong>is overall and allows to analyze any kind of electrical asset or installation, no matter where it is located, its age or size: even underwater. Because SIGMA goes a step ahead, by monitoring electricity and installing the tech-solution at the electrical panel (not over or near equipment). 

In that way, it's possible to protect the installation and assets, because the tech-solution includes few highly advanced sensors performed to analyze electricity and to protect.

These essential conditions increase safety, not only for equipment or installation but for Staff because they do not require to approach themselves to machines located in dangerous, explosive, toxic, or isolated areas.

Therefore, SIGMA's condition monitoring has 3 levels:

+ In real time, high-frequency, and high-precision: with the sensors working at 6,400 samples per second on 7 channels. That is, 6400 x 7 = 44,800 data per second in total.

+ Of edge computing: through our IoT devices, which can run specific algorithms and make calculations on the installation itself.

+ In the cloud: where we not only compare the information of an asset, but we can cross it with others from other teams to provide a deeper analysis.

In addition, to improve Enhanced Safety: SIGMA also protect equipment, installations and staff.

Through SIGMA's monitoring and advanced analysis, we find operational inefficiencies, essential to work more sustainable by reducing energy consumption and the costs from unforeseen stops, maintenance costs, repairs, production costs and at the same time, to make a better use of staff's time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, when you start measuring, you can talk and reason with numbers or data and you start to know something. London, 1891.

We analyse any kind of machine, including soft starters, frequency controllers, etc.
and transformers, which are not being analysed for the other current technological solutions, but in fact, they fail and stop operations too.

Tell us which machines have the most incidents

We will prepare a proposal to solve it

Use of very high resolution sensors capable of collecting hundreds of electrical parameters automatically, connected to the cloud.

The data, collected continuously, are used to generate, on the platform, models of optimal performance from the comparison of the operation of itself over time.

The equipment itself performs the electrical wave analysis and high frequency distortions and stores instantaneous information.

Our platform continuously compares the performance patterns of a piece of equipment over time and hundreds of similar pieces of equipment.

Our algorithms can identify deviations or negative trends in the optimal behaviour of machinery at very early stages and can even detect the cause of such a trend.

The system is able to improve its failure predictions, based on the validation of previous predictions of the specialists using the platform.

Customised reports reviewed by our analytical engineers, reporting on the health of the different industrial assets connected to the Platform.

Our Platform generates fault detection alarms, so that the really necessary maintenance actions on the assets can be planned. It also notifies of any anomaly detected in the installation's power supply, so that corrective measures can be taken. In this way, the risk of machinery failure and overconsumption is reduced.

The SIGMA Platform has communication gateways for sending relevant information to each of the organisation's information systems.
