Lifecycle risk monitoring
Site systems are designed for optimal operations during their planned lifetime. To achieve optimal performance and to prolong life expectancy they need to be kept in an appropriate operating environment.
Operated within the tolerance ranges
The purpose of lifecycle risk monitoring is to ensure that the site systems really are operated within the tolerance ranges specified by the manufacturers, in accordance with standards or best practices. This helps reduce total lifecycle cost and ensure performance according to specifications.
An example is that all batteries have a rated capacity which is determined based on specified conditions. If these ranges for temperature and humidity are not met this may shorten the life expectancy or the time to discharge in case of power outages.
Two types of lifecycle risk monitoring approaches
Coromatic offers two types of lifecycle risk monitoring approaches. One of them is off-line monitoring, where real time data is collected and stored locally on site, which is then collected and analyzed at a later stage, for example as part of a monthly review, identifying if measurement points have provided data outside the approved range.
The on-line monitoring additionally provides remote access to the data, which enables technical alarms that can trigger call-outs if data points are outside the approved range. This also enables continuous data analysis and identification of potential risks for incidents – before they happen.
