DST defined and patented a new metric, combining features of Vibration and Sound technology into one, simple and easy-to-use PM/PdM solution - The Discovery PlatformTM. DST's suite of IoT products range from technician enabled hand-held units, permanently-mounted devices and continuously monitoring systems. The SoundEnergyTM and SoundSignaturesTM sourced by these proprietary devices are processed within DST's patented comparative analytic center hosted online or on a mobile device, providing real time insight into equipment condition and any required maintenance."
