A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11899081B2) discloses a wireless sensor designed for an associated machine or machine part. The sensor includes a property sensor with a communicative link and either a pressure sensor or a temperature sensor to measure properties related to the machine. A communications module with control circuitry wirelessly transmits data received from the property sensor, while an energy source powers the sensor components. The sensor is mounted on the machine, enclosed in a housing structure, and arranged in a stack configuration. Additionally, the sensor features connector pins, a sealing material, a magnetic sensor/switch, and a motion sensor to enhance its functionality and data collection capabilities.

Furthermore, the patent describes a smart device app method stored on a computer-readable storage medium that configures a smart device to receive information from multiple wireless sensors without the need for pairing. The app displays data from the sensors, including company details, sensor identifiers, battery status, pressure, temperature readings, and machine stroke counts. It also highlights specific sensor data based on signal strength, error notifications, parameter deviations, power-saving modes, and magnetic device proximity. This innovative wireless sensor system aims to provide comprehensive monitoring and analysis of machine properties, enhancing operational efficiency and maintenance practices in various industrial settings.
