Amazon Lookout for Equipment

Detect abnormal equipment behavior by analyzing sensor data

Successfully implementing predictive maintenance requires using the specific data collected from all of your machine sensors, under your unique operating conditions and then applying machine learning (ML) to enable highly accurate predictions. However, implementing an ML solution for your equipment can be difficult and time-consuming.

Amazon Lookout for Equipment analyzes the data from the sensors on your equipment (e.g. pressure in a generator, flow rate of a compressor, revolutions per minute of fans), to automatically train a machine learning model based on just your data, for your equipment – with no ML expertise required. Lookout for Equipment uses your unique ML model to analyze incoming sensor data in real-time and accurately identify early warning signs that could lead to machine failures. This means you can detect equipment abnormalities with speed and precision, quickly diagnose issues, take action to reduce expensive downtime, and reduce false alerts.

High accuracy results

Amazon Lookout for Equipment uses data from your existing sensors to build a custom ML model specific to your equipment. It handles data from up to 300 sensors in one model, along with historical logs, to give you accurate alerts when your equipment behaves abnormally.

Respond to issues faster and with precision

Amazon Lookout for Equipment automatically monitors your equipment and identifies any anomalies compared to healthy operation. Lookout for Equipment can then pinpoint the sensor or sensors indicating anomalies, enabling you to respond quickly.

Accelerate issue resolution

You can use data from Amazon Lookout for Equipment to set up automatic actions to be taken when anomalies are detected, such as filing a trouble ticket, or sending an automatic alarm that notifies you immediately of any issues. The data from Lookout for Equipment can be integrated into your existing monitoring software or you can use AWS IoT SiteWise to collect, store, organize and monitor data. Lookout for Equipment can also work with data from common industrial data systems such as OSIsoft.

Improve accuracy of alerts over time

Amazon Lookout for Equipment continuously improves model performance and accuracy of alerts by incorporating human review feedback on the anomalies detected and learning expected operational usage trends.

Use cases

Amazon Lookout for Equipment can analyze sensor data from a broad range of industrial machinery.

Wind turbines



Wind turbines

Analyze sensor data from generators such as flow rates, temperature, pressure, and oxygen levels data to detect equipment shutdowns before they happen.

Analyze historical maintenance data and sensor data from compressors such as RPMs, inlet/outlet flow rates, temperature, pressure, and vibration to identify abnormal machinery behavior.

For equipment like wind turbines, you can analyze sensor data like power, pitch blade angle, RPMs, wind speed, and generator temperature to quickly identify issues before they occur.
