Advantech Smart Condition-based Monitoring Solution in Compressed/Clean Dry Air (CDA) System


Lcation: Taiwan


In a competitive semiconductor industry, where high volume and maximum efficiency mean everything, a high reliable wireless technology used in remote facility monitoring application may be a suitable processing aid.

Compressed/clean dry air (CDA) is employed in fabs to drive pneumatic components of manufacturing process equipment, control valve functioning, or clean materials/equipment. To smooth the manufacturing processes, CDA system must to be monitored by facility maintenance department.

System Requirements

Customer required a plug and play, remote facility monitoring, controlling and inspection wireless solution. To achieve this goal, we provided industrial LoRaWAN solution which includes WISE-2410 vibration sensor for compressor inspection, WISE-4610 LoRaWAN I/O module with its WISE-S617 flexible I/O, and WISE-2200-M LoRaWAN RS-485 I/O module for facility current monitoring on CDA systems in Taiwan semiconductor manufacturing fabs.

Project Implementation

  • WISE-6610: Hardened LoRaWAN 8-Channel Gateway
  • WISE-2200-M: LoRaWAN RS-485 I/O Module
  • WISE-2410: LoRaWAN Wireless Vibration Sensor
  • WISE-4610: LoRaWAN IoT Wireless Modular I/O
  • WISE-S617T: 2AI/2DI/1DO Wireless Modular I/O with 1RS-485
  • 96PD-THS16B: Temperature & Humidity Sensor
  • ICR-4453: Ultra High-Speed 5G Router & Edge Computing Gateway

System Description

To build a reliable and cost effective private LoRaWAN network for CDA systems and cooling tower, Advantech leverages LoRaWAN vibration sensor, LoRaWAN I/O modules, and LoRaWAN gateway with detailed functions as below.

WISE-2410 offers an easy way for rotating facility inspection application by following ISO-10816 standard. Moreover, WISE-2410 also supports 3-axis vibration detection and with IP66 rating, wide temperature design can conquer harsh environment where compressed Clean Dry Air (CDA) system is located.

WISE-2200-M is a plug-and-play LoRaWAN RS-485 I/O module that allows users to easily configure data acquisition settings and capture sensor and meter data via its Modbus/RTU protocol support. Its wide temperature range (-25~70°C) allows the device to operate in extreme industrial environment.

WISE-4610 with its’ WISE-S617 flexible I/O solution fulfill different kinds of remote facility monitoring and controlling application. It has DO for switch control and has AI/DI/RS-485 channels for sensor and PLC connection.

WISE-6610 is a LoRaWAN gateway which supports Modbus TCP protocol connecting to the SCADA system in the control room.
