Azima DLI recently announced a new category within the predictive maintenance (PdM) industry — Reliability as a Service (RaaS). According to the company, RaaS is a new standard for delivery of highly efficient, cost-effective machine condition monitoring programs. 

In conjunction with the new standard, the company launched its TRIO CA6 with RaaS, a cloud-based vibration data collector and machine condition analyzer. The new data collector comes with a cloud-computing solution that provides access to the latest PdM analysis technologies and collaboration tools. It features locally installed ExpertALERT analysis software, cloud-based ExpertALERT analysis software web application and cloud-provided WATCHMAN Reliability Portal, as well as hosted data storage and replication services, mentored PdM training, and professional analytical expertise.

With a solid-state hard drive, sunlight-readable touch screen and Wi-Fi access, the CA6 can automatically connect with desktop or networked PCs and servers. It also includes a digital camera to allow operators to take video or still photos during routine machine inspections.

For improved safety and maneuverability, the CA6 also supports hands-free, Bluetooth-enabled, wireless data-acquisition control up to 30 feet away from the sensor, while the lightweight, ergonomic design enables greater portability and decreases the physical demands of data collection.  

"RaaS from Azima DLI is a PdM game-changer, as it provides a complete software-as-a-service solution unmatched by any other provider," said Randy Johnson, Azima DLI’s vice president of sales and marketing. "This integrated solution incorporates the latest collection hardware with Azima DLI’s leading ExpertALERT software and WATCHMAN Reliability Portal, making enterprise-wide PdM collaboration possible for customers who want to manage their own maintenance programs."
