Centaur's hardware is designed with the end-user in mind. Whether you need wireless sensors for troubleshooting a complex condition or a gateway with the flexibility to operate without a wireless network or external power source, Centaur's comprehensive suite of hardware products can deliver the data you need to improve operations.
Collect. Detect. Protect.
Designed for ease of installation and maintenance, Centaur uses wireless sensors to collect information, such as pressure, vibration, and temperature. These sensors are connected to a wireless gateway.
The gateway then transmits collected information to the cloud using cellular, Wi-Fi, or a wired connection. On the cloud, data is stored and analyzed using powerful AI-driven algorithms. This data can be accessed remotely by plant personnel and Hydro’s engineers.
Hydro's gateways relay data from the sensors to the cloud. A collection gateway is typically connected to the cloud using one of the following: Cellular, Wi-Fi, or LAN. By providing a means of relaying critical data to the cloud, even in remote locations, our gateways help you to optimize operations and identify problems before equipment failure.
Each sensor collects useful machine condition data at preset intervals and relays this information, through the gateway, to the cloud-based Enterprise Predictive Maintenance (EPM) software. The information collected helps to optimize equipment, understand equipment health, improve preventative maintenance strategies, and understand equipment failure modes.
Centaur’s sensors were designed by pump subject matter experts to ensure that they are collecting the data required to detect and identify critical pump failure mechanisms.
