Splunk embraces industrial IoT

Australian wind farm operator Infigen Energy has been named as one of the beta customers of Splunk Industrial Asset Intelligence (Splunk IAI) – a new system is designed to make it easier for customers to use Splunk’s data analytics capabilities to analyse data from industrial systems and devices.

Victor Sanchez, application architect at Infigen Energy, said Splunk IAI had helped the company unify disparate and complex data across its six wind farms.

“We are looking forward to using IAI to monitor turbine sensors and measure temperature, vibration, wind speed and generation activities,” he said.

“With real-time insight on data correlated from various sources we can predict turbine behaviour and maintenance needs. For instance, if we get a read on higher than usual wind speeds, we will be alerted much more quickly about the likelihood of a turbine stopping, and proactively plan for the circumstance.”

Splunk’s director of IoT, Seema Haji, told IoT Hub that
