I have a Predictive Maintenance Sensor that uses the 5500 ethernet modem. When the machine that the sensor is attached to is down I receive data from the sensor. However when the machine is running I receive no broadcasts.
I’m thinking that this problem is due to electromagnetic interference because the machine is a high voltage machine with a lot of pcbs and controllers. Has anyone else run into this issue and what is the best way to remedy it? I have a 900 mhz remote antenna ordered that I plan to distance from the control cabinet that I hope to try by the end of this week. I hate to move the sensor box itself because it’s in a nice location that will prevent it from being knocked around or damaged.
I appreciate any comments. Thanks!
