In this paper, we describe the instrumentation setup for wireless condition monitoring of induction machine in a laboratory environment. Four parameters, viz., stator voltage, current, body temperature, and rotor speed were sensed and fed to a dedicated hardware unit (DHU). This DHU was operated using commands from a desktop computer, acting as an operator station. An Arduino Uno board was used as the data collection unit of the DHU and interfacing to the ZigBee module. Data packets with all four sensed parameters of 5 s duration was continuously collected and transferred to the operator station for real-line display in a graphical user interface. All parameters had less than 1% error in their measurements. © 2020, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
