Stand Alone Smart Bolt for e-Maintenance

S. Mekid, U. Baroudi, and A. Bouhraoua

Abstract—The present paper introduces a new configuration of a smart bolt capable of sensing the variation of its axial tension. The information is processed in a built-in board and a wireless alarm is sent to a receiver to inform about the health of the bolts at any time. Both way communications is allowed within a designed network of bolts in a plant. For the sake of less cumbrousness, the whole board is space optimized with battery less trials.

Index Terms—Tension monitoring, smart bolt, condition based monitoring, wireless.
