Keeping your machinery downtime to a minimum is something we strive for with all our customers. Remote condition monitoring is great for implementing predictive maintenance. A fleet of sensors measures and records crucial data immediately so you can find issues well before they become more harmful, and the Voice of the Machine software provides intuitive analytics of your whole system. Together, the sensors and the software give plant and equipment maintenance managers a clear view of the system performance and alert them to components needing attention.


The SensoNODE Gold and Voice of the Machine Cloud Starter Kit provides an out-of-the-box remote monitoring solution.

Getting Started with Remote Equipment Monitoring

In just 3 three simple steps, you'll be able to set alerts to notify responsible parties of an event, view actionable data in graphical form, and export data for further analysis:

Step 1: Install the wireless sensors
Step 2: Supply power to the gateway
Step 3: Log in to "Voice of the Machine" Cloud
Boom! It's that simple!

SensoNODE Gold & Voice of the Machine Starter Kit

The SensoNODE Gold and Voice of the Machine Cloud Starter Kit includes:

Temperature Sensor


(1) 150 psi Pressure Sensor
(1) 5,800 psi Pressure Sensor

SensoNODE Gold Pressure Sensors accurately monitor pressure readings in the most common pressure ranges.

Temperature Sensor


SensoNODE Gold Temperature Sensors accurately track in-line or ambient temperatures measured in Fahrenheit or Celsius.

The increased temperature often correlates with excessive wear of a component and alerts personnel that it is time to service or replace the part.

Vibration Sensor


Parker's SensoNODE Vibration Sensors provide a simple and effective way to measure the vibration of industrial machinery.


SensoNODE Gold 4-20mA Transmitter

(1) SensoNODE Gold 4-20mA Transmitter
The 4-20mA Transmitter turns any wired 4-20mA sensor into a wireless device, making it easier to monitor any asset.
