Technology is advancing at an incredible rate and has been for quite some time. The technological advancements made in the 21st century arguably far surpass those made in previous centuries- especially when it comes to the internet. While the internet was created at the end of the 20th century, it has become much more advanced in recent years. One concept that speaks to this is the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT allows for interrelated machines and devices to transfer data between themselves without the need for human-to-human or human-to-computer exchanges. This technology has created opportunities for many different systems, including remote monitoring.
In short, the Internet of Things is the concept of any device with an available internet connection being able to connect to another device of a similar nature. The easy way to understand which devices make use of the IoT is to see if they have an on/off switch. If they do, chances are that they can be accessed and controlled using the IoT. These devices include cell phones, washing machines, headphones, coffee makers, lamps, machine components, ovens, gearboxes, and more. There are several ways that the Internet of Things could positively impact you. However, one of the most impactful benefits of IoT is remote monitoring.
Remote monitoring is the process of collecting data from machine sensors on various devices. These devices include ovens, gearboxes, freezers, fridges, kilns, and more. Various data can be collected from these devices, such as temperature, pressure, and energy consumption.
Companies that provide remote monitoring services with the help of IoT technology, such as Angrid, can not only monitor these devices, but also install alarms and capture important data. Angrid can assist you with installation and measuring many parameters including temperature monitoring, pressure monitoring, flow monitoring and meter montoring. Measuring and monitoring any of these parameters in real time gives you a real feel and understanding of your particular business.
