The technical meaning of maintenance involves functional checks, servicing, repairing or replacing of necessary devices, equipment, machinery, building infrastructure, and supporting utilities in industrial, business, and residential installations. Over time, this has come to include multiple wordings that describe various cost-effective practices to keep equipment operational; these activities occur either before or after a failure.
The marine and air transportation, offshore structures, industrial plant and facility management industries depend on maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).
The basic types of maintenance falling under MRO include:
RVmagnetics sensor solution is able to provide Real-time data through almost any material. This can happen from within or from the surface of the application. A properly calibrated data through the precise real-time measurements enables for predicting a potential failure, or simply a maintenance activity. Essentially the MicroWire and the Sensing system is designed to help determine the condition of in-service equipment in order to estimate when maintenance should be performed. This approach promises cost savings over routine or time-based preventive maintenance because tasks are performed only when warranted. Thus, it is regarded as condition-based maintenance carried out as suggested by estimations of the degradation state of an item.
